For centuries the countries of the Nordic-Baltic region had vibrant, growing Christian communities. But political censure and cultural drifting in each of these nations has dimmed the light of Christ to the point of near darkness.

A total of 31.9 million people live in the Nordic-Baltic region. Only 1.4% percent of them (i.e.less than half a million people) are evangelical, born-again Christians. For every person who has a committed relationship with Christ, 71 do not. We are called to reach out to these brothers and sisters to reintroduce them to a life empowered by a belief in the risen Christ.

Converge has had a presence in Estonia for the past twelve years. In that time the Gospel has been shared through publication of evangelical books translated into the Estonian language, leadership training and development, pastors renewals, youth ministry, English and sports camps, family counseling, outreach concerts, as well as the construction of a playground and several churches.

Our Estonian partners have leveraged this involvement to grow existing churches, recruit and train Christian leaders, and lead hundreds of people to Christ. This is a model we can replicate in each of the Nordic-Baltic countries, a model with the potential to break up the spiritual soil in these nations to produce a rich harvest for the Kingdom.

Each of these countries has a constitution assuring religious freedom to the people. Until recently the people have been resistant to missionaries and their message. But with the success of our efforts in Estonia we are emboldened to bring God’s Word throughout the Nordic-Baltic region via ministry with nationals from each country. God himself encourages us to move forward.
