Europe, Mediterranean & Middle East

Helping the least reached people groups across Europe, Mediterranean and the Middle East meet, know and follow Jesus
Europe is not the Christian continent most think it is. It is a battleground for the future of the global Church. Europe has 75 percent of the top agnostic and atheist countries. Out of 73 million Europeans, less than 2 percent actively follow Jesus. As refugees and victims of terrorism flood Europe and parts of the Middle East, the majority are coming with no knowledge of a life-changing Savior.
