Missionary
ECM operates in Slovenia with the Upanje foundation, which runs a Christian bookstore. It also supports three missionary couples. The Netherlands has a great interest in Slovenia and has developed a very active prayer base for the country.

ECM requires
From all appearances, Slovenia is a very Roman Catholic country, but the substance of the Roman Catholic faith has faded away through the years. Now with a prosperous economy, faith has a marginal role in the lives of many Slovenians. Talking about God is strange, reading the Bible is very rare. In the meantime, there is a great longing and searching for purpose, especially among young people.
ECM desires that there be an increasing number of Christian communities showing a radiant testimony to the relevancy of the Gospel in a prospering society with a declining Roman Catholic tradition.
