Called to share the Gospel

We serve

We serve local churches in evangelism and in teaching and equipping church members. Besides work with local churches, we reach out to students, youth and children, have marriage ministries and work among senior citizens.

We work within the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland but are open to work with other churches and denominationsas in proclaiming the Gospel and encouraging people to believe in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and finding their place as His followers and disciples.

The motto

The motto of our work is: Living by grace, proclaiming Jesus.

Ministries

In our ministry there is room for people from different spiritual backgrounds and emphasis. We want to build bridges  – both for  knowing God and in fellowship with Christians across social and denominational boundaries.

Besides work with local churches, we have student, youth, children and marriage ministries and work among senior citizens. In Helsinki, Turku, Tampere, Jyväskylä, Lahti and Kuopio we offer activities for different age groups.

In our retreat centers we offer a wide selection of events, courses, retreats and camps for all age groups. Check out Vivamo, Kairosmaja. Orisberg,  and Tervonsalmi.
