Those of us who are serving the Lord here in Europe,
are greatly burdened about
Europe needs more Gospel preaching churches! If 10,000 Bible believing churches were started next year, and each were able to see 100 souls saved that year, that would represent less than .2% of the population of Europe (that’s not even 1/5th of 1 percent)!!!!!!! Europe is going to hell men, and we MUST decide to do whatever it takes to make a difference! And it all begins with our commitment to start more churches – places where the clear, simple Gospel of Jesus Christ is faithfully preached, week-in and week-out!
Our Church Planting Conference is my church’s attempt to help start churches in Europe! Yes, the whole world is going to hell, but our burden is especially for European souls! And my church is determined to personally have a hand in helping start 20 new churches by the year 2020. Would you accept the same burden for your church?
The European Church Planting Conference
The European Church Planting Conference is a gathering of like-minded men and churches to stir us up for lost souls AND for planting new churches all over Europe! We will challenge our understanding of just how lost this continent is; We will allow ourselves to be rebuked and corrected for NOT having more of a burden for church planting; And we will rejoice to be exhorted to do “so much the more as we see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25)! Can we not do more?
This year we are holding our European Church Planting Conference in Arklow, Ireland, just an hour and a half south of Dublin, at Pastor Oriel O’Gorman’s Church. It will be held on Saturday, November 17th from 10am until 4pm. The meeting is free, and the schedule is as follows:
· We will have bagels, tea, coffee before 10am
· 3 messages will be preached and taught throughout the conference
· There will be an Open Forum Discussion towards the end
· We will hear Updates from around Ireland
· As well as Updates from around Europe (including via Skype)
· There will be a Luncheon at 1pm
· Missionary and pastor wives and ladies are encouraged to stay for first message, and then spend time fellowshipping together by going shopping, or have coffee together for the next 4 hours.
We Want To Help Start Churches
This conference is a great way to get together for fellowship and encouragement as preachers and Gospel ministers, but its main focus is the equipping of men and their ministries to START new churches all over Europe! Missionary families come to Europe, and leave far to quickly, and way too often. Maybe we all could work together to enable missionaries to STAY in Europe and succeed in Europe! We have dedicated ourselves to doing whatever it takes to encourage God’s men and their families to accomplish the burden of evangelizing Europe once again with the Gospel!
We Want to Encourage and even Help Build-Up Existing Churches
We want to encourage ministries, by encouraging churches IN EUROPE going to visit other churches, on Mission Trips, and help them with Bible Clubs, Soul-Winning, and just anything else that might be needed! We ALL could use some encouragement from one another!

Like-minded independent Baptist men and their wives and families who are burdened to start more Gospel preaching churches in Europe will be in Arklow this year. I know “I” and many of the men from my church will be there! Potentially there could be hundreds of men here… but the question is simply, WILL YOU BE THERE?
WE KNOW OF BIBLE BELIEVING
shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be
