Where do I start?

It’s important to seek God’s will for your life through prayer and meditation on his word. After that, talk to a few trusted people from your church community who can help you reflect on your initial thoughts. Attending a mission conference can help you discover more about mission work. Get involved in missions here at home and develop your God-given talents. And if possible visit the country God puts on your heart.

Talk to us

As soon as you are seriously considering mission work somewhere in Europe, you can get in contact with us for an exploratory conversation.

Going to the mission field is a journey, and depending on where you are on that journey, after conversations with us, we can then assess and mentor you towards your call to mission in Europe. This may include some or all of the following:
  • Completing questionnaires and asking others to complete references about you.
  • Conversations with ECM-workers, the ECM board, your church leaders, a psychologist and the team leader of your potential ECM team. Usually we recommend that you also visit the ECM team you're hoping to join.
  • Possibly (additional) theological/missiological education or more experience with work in your church.
  • Building your support group in terms of prayer and finance. We will help and advise you, and your church and friends will play an important part. It isn't always easy, but we have seen that God provides with everything necessary when he calls you to serve him.



We hope that you will seriously consider and pray about serving as a worker for God somewhere in Europe. Europe needs more people to share Jesus' love by planting and developing his church so that we can reach those yearning for meaning and purpose in their lives.
