We are excited to announce that in the autumn of 2014 we will be planting a Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered and socially-responsible church called Every Nation Belfast.
As a church we are committed to reach the campus and community in the heart of Belfast city! We have a desire to connect with people far from God and point them to faith. Our passion is to reach and disciple the next generation of leaders that comes from a diverse, multigenerational multi ethnic group of people from different nations.
Together we have a desire to reach Ireland and plant churches throughout Ireland and Europe and we are excited and privileged to be leading the church planting team in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Andrea is originally from Evansville, Indiana, USA and Johann was born in Cape Town, South Africa. Johann is also an Irish citizen that arrived in Ireland in 2001 as part of the church planting team from our Every Nation Church in London. Johann spend many years in the building and construction management industry constructing commercial buildings in Dublin city before God called him into full-time ministry in 2009.
Johann and Andrea met each other at one of our Sunday morning services after Andrea decided to visit her Irish roots on a short trip from the USA. We had the privilege of helping pastor the Every Nation Dublin church for several years and are looking forward to continue building and partnering with the south.
Our mission assignment is to honour God and make disciples of all nations through campus ministry, community outreach, world missions and church planting. Ireland has been known throughout the centuries around the world as the land of saints and scholars where many missionaries were equipped in monasteries around Ireland and then sent to evangelise Europe and the nations. Therefore, our mission and call as a church is to unlock the Irish destiny again by reaching, equipping the saints and students on the campuses and communities throughout Ireland for the work of the ministry, and then sending them out to reach every nation in their generation.
