Why Western Europe?
One hundred years ago, the Western European country we serve was one of the most devoutly Christian nations in the world. Perhaps 70% of the population went to church. Now less than 3% go to church and perhaps less than 1% are truly Christians. But this downward spiral is changing. Since December 2008, HHBC has been in partnership with a group of young, vibrant pastors who are making converts and training up disciples. Hundreds of Oklahomans have traveled to Western Europe, mainly to minister alongside our friends, Pastor Derek, and Pastor Rhun.
We have established an annual youth camp, started weekly kids and youth clubs, presented the gospel in elementary schools, sponsored a sports camp, undertaken construction projects, helped churches grow in spirituality and in numbers, and done whatever we can to magnify Christ and to elevate the local pastor. Our partners speak English, are warm and open-hearted, and they greatly love our American teams. There are several trips and types of missions planned each year, please consider joining us and falling in love with Western Europe and its people.
