Europe & Central Asia

Multiply gives leadership and coordination to initiatives in eight European countries. We are invested in facilitating church planting and providing vision and strategy for new projects in new locations. Johann Matthies and Heinrich Rempel, our European Mission Development Directors, are resourcing our workers and projects across the region, as well as working hard to mobilize Europeans into meaningful mission engagement within the region. They are working alongside various churches, partner organizations and schools for world mission.

The dominant religion in Central Asia is Islam and within these countries there can be hostility towards Christianity and persecution of new believers by government, community and family members. Ministry in these regions leans heavily upon the wisdom and discretion of national leaders. But God is also moving in dynamic ways within specific countries of this region.

Although the vast majority of the population in this region holds to a traditional form of Islam, a growing number of people are questioning their traditions and seeking truth. In one specific country, Multiply workers have been hosting peace camps and facilitating church plants throughout this country, sharing God’s love with their community. Some of our workers have been unable to resolve increasingly stringent visa demands to maintain a long-term presence in this country. Those who have found a way to stay face significant challenges, as one of our workers there recently expressed:

 

“Political unrest in this country has many people in fear and uncertainty… We feel this is a critical time for prayer, and sense that the Father wants to move in a big way here. Pray that fear would not keep us from doing the things we feel the Father calling us to.” (A&R)


Partnership with national leaders in Central Asia allows Multiply to continue facilitating new church plants and training new missional leaders. This has not gone unnoticed by governing authorities. In 2018, a number of local Islamic newspapers actually featured a photo of one national leader and described how Christian churches were multiplying “like mushrooms” due to “sneaky missionaries” being allowed to operate in the open without any government interference and opposition. 

In the face of these challenges, our national leader and our team there are responding to persecution with joy and determination, welcoming the publicity and forging ahead.
