Ireland



TEAM STRATEGY

A divided country and ongoing violence involving religious beliefs have taken a toll on hearts in Ireland. In addition, a cloud of secular, postmodern darkness has begun to spread from continental Europe. Many are lost in atheism, materialism, New Age beliefs, and indifference to sin. There is a hunger for lasting peace. It is the goal of WorldVenture's team in Ireland to continue bringing the light of the gospel to the Irish through friendship evangelism, Bible studies, and encouragement of the few small Baptist churches scattered throughout the land.
