About This Session
Jiri Unger, President of the European Evangelical Alliance says, “The continent known for over 1000 years as the heartland of Christianity has gone into spiritual arrest.” In many ways Europe is post-Christian. But one of the changes happening is that as Christianity fades, the vacuum is being filled by Islam. And while historic, state-run churches are dwindling new congregations focused on ministering to immigrants and the marginalized are multiplying and growing.
The future of Christianity in Europe matters. Join the TCAMP mission leaders network on May 14 to hear from mission leaders address these changes, and discuss these questions with others:
How is the church being re-planted in a post-Christian society? What are differences and similarities across different regions of Europe? What is the opportunity for Muslim evangelism in Europe? Are there contexts where there is much Gospel fruit? Are there contexts where we need to concentrate missions efforts? How should the North American Church best support missions in Europe?

About Our Network Gatherings
Food: Bring your own “brown bag” lunch. Desserts and beverages are provided by the host church, and you are welcome to bring your own meal and eat with everyone else.
Meeting Times: The meeting is from noon-1:30. To encourage learning and collaboration we invite you to arrive 10-15 minutes early, or feel free to stay longer to network with other leaders.
Our Purpose: TCAMP seeks to deliver two important values to local churches and global missions leaders:
- Connect mission leaders to add momentum to the global missions movement. The Twin Cities is privileged to have a strong, collaborative missions community. Few other US cities have such a community.
- Support the professional development of mission movements by sharing best practices and opportunities for learning. TCAMP serves as a professional peer network for mission leaders from church staffs, mission committees, field workers and other ministry entities.
