International Director’s Summer in Europe
While in Europe this summer, Rick visited the church of Christian Schmid, one of our partners in Bern, Switzerland. This congregation is part of the Evangelium21 network in German-speaking Switzerland, and Rick was encouraged to see how our 9Marks books in German were being used in the capital, Bern, to nurture healthy churches.
At his church, Christian introduced Rick to a member of his congregation. The man turned to Rick:
“You’re the reason I’m here! When I visited this church, they gave us all a copy of What is a Healthy Church in German. I didn’t read it immediately, but when I did a few months later, it was a contrast to the church I was attending and I realized that I needed to go back to this church where I would hear the same teaching.”
