The Need

Back in the 1st century, Greece paved the way for the spread of the church and proclamation of the gospel through a common language and culture. The country boasts a proud history and association with the Christian faith. However today estimates suggest there is less than 20,000 believers representing 0.18% of the population.

Evangelical churches face difficulties on obtaining recognised church permits and are confronted by skepticism and legal red-tape.

Greece is an endangered mission field, often overlooked by traditional missionary organisations, yet the need is great.

Transform Europe Now currently supports partners based in Athens.
