Wild at Heart
Currently there is a need to reach the masculine heart in Spain like never before, and we are seeing that God is beginning to wake leaders in the church up to this need. There are few resources for men in Castilian Spanish, and even fewer ministries and retreats for them. The focus of this vision is to reach men’s hearts in Spain through providing resources, training and one or more annual retreats for men, using the materials and approach of Wild at Heart, contextualised for Spain.
This project is an annual event in collaboration with a Christian ministry from Northern Ireland. Coaching for Christ provides us with professional football coaches who use their training to reach young people with the gospel through Christian football camps.
We are looking for €2,000 to be able to hold this project. Are you able to help us raise this?
Church plant in Novi Marof, Croatia
Novi Marof is a town of 13,000 people in northern Croatia. The Emanuel Baptist Church of Varaždin (16 km away) is planting a church there. They have already evangelised there and they have some converts.
The Varaždin church will be renting a hall at Novi Marof for services and evangelistic activities, and are looking for others who will want to contribute to this new church plant.
Greek Bible College Internet Overhaul
Due to the pandemic, educational institutions in Greece now have to offer remote learning, making all students and faculty totally reliant on internet access. The problem for the Greek Bible College in Pikermi, a respected and renowned Christian College, is that the infrastructure in place is very old and badly designed, and they need help to set up their network.
Would you join with us to raise the €5,450 still needed to connect students and faculty in this institution?
Zondervan NT Commentary Translation
One of the needs ECM workers in Romania identified was the need for theological and Bible study materials in Romanian language for pastors and seminary students. They have since worked to meet that need and so this 10-year project was born, to make the whole 20 volume NT commentary series available in Romanian.
This worthy project now needs €4300 ($5000 USD) to expand capacity by engaging an extra translator and desktop publisher designer. Let's help this excellent initiative advance to completion.
Patchwork Apartment in Schwerin
The Patchwork Centre is an evangelistic community center with café, workshop, second hand, music, etc, located in one of the most atheist regions in the world: East-Germany. One of our goals is to offer our ministry to interns who take their first steps in the missions field, and we are in need of additional funding for their housing situation. We want to rent an apartment where the interns can stay during their internship.
We're praying for €500/month during one year, a total of €6000, to rent a 3-room apartment big enough to host up to 4 people.

Bringing Synergetic Communion
Two ECM missionaries, together with a Brazilian pastor, have written a book to encourage a new generation of church leaders to work together with their brethren across denominational barriers. The book is already available in Portuguese, and the desire is to translate and edit the book into English. This will cost about €2,500, with the aim to publish the book in Spring 2023.
