Europe as a whole is only about 4% Evangelical - that means, even though a majority of Europeans are registered members of a church, there are very few who actually believe the Bible and have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Where the light of Gospel once shown so brightly, it has now sadly, in many places grown dim. This needs to change! That is why Commission Europe exists - for the Great Commission to be fulfilled in Europe! Our desire is to see Europeans from every country, region and ethnic group come to a living faith in Jesus Christ.
How do you reach a continent and see the nations awaken to the light of the Gospel? We have learned that the best way to reach the most people (and the most different kinds of people) over the long term is to plant local churches. For this reason, we have partnered with several church planting organizations and networks in order to help train pastors, denominational and lay leaders to plant churches and start church planting movements throughout Europe. In this way, we will be able to see vast numbers of Europeans reached with the Gospel in a way that puts a local church in their area that speaks to their unique culture.
Robert Tomaschek is the Director of Commission Europe. He is a native of Europe, born and raised in southern Germany. Robert has a call to train and develop pastors and church leaders - especially in the area of church planting. He lives and breathes to see God glorified in Europe and a great harvest of souls won on his home continent.
