Beth Ann serves with an established evangelical church, Kolgata Church (Tartu, Estonia), to engage in discipling and developing the next generation of leaders in Estonia. She has begun partnering with Kolgata Church to minister full time to youth and young adults. As the youth mature, her dream is to help them plant churches all over Estonia. In addition to youth camps, her main ministry focus areas are working with multiple youth cooking groups, discipling individual youth and serving with the middle school youth group at Kolgata Church.
Tartu, Estonia //Located in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, Estonia has a population of about 1.3 million and is considered one of the most atheistic countries in the world. Tartu is the second-largest city in Estonia. Because of the large university in Tartu, the city is a hub for youth.
Personal project fund
Donate to a missionary to help provide specific tools and equipment needed to advance local ministry.
Outreach, fellowship, and discipleship through one-time and ongoing youth ministry events. Building fruitful and Christ-centered relationships with the Estonian youth for the advancement of God's kingdom. Identifying ministry needs and growing relationships with whom we will work together for the purpose of establishing and strengthening youth ministry programs and planting churches in Estonia.
Many youth in Estonia are willing to spend time with believers, ask questions about beliefs, consider and ponder possibilities of a creator and savior, however they may be hesitant to set foot in a traditional church building and may be turned off to anything that is connected to their definition of “religion.” This project will provide the opportunity to purchase multiple locations, outside of a traditional church building, where youth can gather, grow, and go. The locations will serve as the foundation for the next generation of churches in Estonia. These physical locations will serve as a bridge where we can build relationships with youth, and as we build these relationships, share about a relationship with Christ (not a “religion”, but a "relationship"). Currently, other than schools and churches, there is a lack of physical place were youth can gather (free of cost/charge), especially during the winter months.
Experience Estonia! Come and see excursions... Vision and mission trips allow you to see first-hand the needs that exist and build relationships with local Estonians. Help inspire and encourage those with desire for spiritual growth! Share the love of Christ with non-believers in Estonia.
