Opportunity

Church Planters

The Position

Are you passionate about sharing Christ’s message of faith, love and forgiveness to underserved communities? If so, we have a place for you in Slovakia. Our church planting team has worked for more than 15 years to spread the gospel in Slovakia, but we need more self-disciplined, committed Christians who want to work as part of a close-knit team to help us increase our numbers.

As a church planter, you will:

  • Help Slovakia’s people overcome a repressed past and welcome Christ into their hearts
  • Lead an authentically Christian lifestyle as you build church communities from the ground up with passion, patience and a positive attitude
  • Strengthen the church’s mission through improving the biblical education of workers, and set an excellent personal example by sharing your own testimony
  • Collaborate with ABWE team members to provide personal support for church leaders and members
  • Identify servant-leaders in the Slovakian community
The Need

The oppression of communism stifled religious freedom in Slovakia for over 40 years. Christian persecution and repression discouraged Slovakians from developing a personal relationship with God. Today, there is religious freedom but the influence of the past remains strong. With nearly 5.5 million nationals in Slovakia, only 0.2 percent identify as evangelical. We need your help to remove the roadblocks that prevent Slovakia’s people from discovering the love and forgiveness that Christ offers.

The Impact

Use your skills to help fulfill the Great Commission. As Christians, Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and we believe that process isn’t completed until these disciples are gathered into a local community of believers: a church. Church planting is the heartbeat of evangelism, and it’s at the core of who we are at ABWE. It’s hard work, but for those called to the challenge, there is no greater reward on earth than watching a community of believers grow in their faith, and begin to understand their own role in the Great Commission.
