Amsterdam

The Amsterdam story

Amsterdam came onto our radar a little unplanned. Froukje Eikelboom who is a theology student in Amsterdam did an internship at the University of Pretoria (TUKS). There she met some of the team from Every Nation, got connected to church, became part of a discipleship group and learned about making disciples and campus ministry. From there she heard about our mission to Berlin in April 2017 which she joined and asked if we could visit her campus in Amsterdam after our trip to Berlin. 

We did and we also got to meet some other students who were also very keen to learn more about discipleship and how to reach their campuses with the Gospel of Jesus. Fast forward a couple of months and we are now exploring the possibilities of a church plant along with the students and two couples who moved to Amsterdam from our Every Nation church in Pretoria.

That, in short, is the Amsterdam story.

This video was taken during our last trip to Amsterdam where we spent time with Sheranne and Froukje on campus doing a bit of Godtest training and sharing the heart and vision on discipleship!

Next year Sheranne will be visiting us in South Africa for a time to learn more about Every Nation, discipleship and campus ministry!

We have a support group on Whatsapp specifically for the Amsterdam scout mission. If you would like to be added to this group please click on this link via your phone to be taken directly to the group.

Specific prayer points

Matthew 9:37-38

Then Jesus said to His disciples, the harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

  • Thank God for the harvest that is ready and plentiful in Amsterdam. He has already prepared the harvest and we can with confidence go in and reap what belongs to Jesus!
  • Please pray with us for provision for the laborers who are going. We are still trusting for some finances to come in! If you would like to partner financially with the team going please send me an email or a message!
