Connecting the Church in Mission

Europe and Eurasia

The 47 countries of Europe form a complex historical, cultural, and religious tapestry. Centuries of national and sectarian conflict have given way today to considerable economic, social and, at times, quite secular, cooperation. Methodism's roots were in 18th-century Great Britain. Russia, the Baltic countries and other parts of eastern Europe are church-growth areas. Projects and ministries focus on education of pastors and lay leaders, evangelism, children and youth, and economically marginal groups.
