BRUSSELS, BELGIUM

Belgium boasts two rich linguistic cultures and occupies a strategic position within Europe. The country is divided between the Flemish-speaking Flanders in the north and the French-speaking Wallonia in the south. Cultural Catholicism dominates much of the country, but like much of Europe, secularism rules the daily lives of most residents.

 

The capital city of Brussels offers a uniquely international atmosphere: More than half of Brussels residents are of foreign origin. Due to steady waves of immigration as well as being the primary seat of the European Union, Brussels offers opportunities to minister to people from all over the world, some from countries where the gospel is not openly proclaimed. MTW Belgium seeks to bring the reality of the gospel into the daily lives of people in this diverse city. We do that primarily through church-planting, and we are working with Belgian partners in the International Presbyterian Church (IPC) to see that vision come to fruition.
