Additional information:

 

Historically, the people of the Czech Republic have been characterized as being “tolerant and even indifferent towards religion.” According to a 2010 poll, only 16% of Czech citizens stated, “they believe there is a God” (this is the lowest rate among the countries of the European Union). Between 1991 and 2011 the Roman Catholic Church and the Czech Brethren churches have lost 75% of their members. Today Protestantism has declined to be a small minority in the country, with only 0.5% of Czechs adhering to the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren. Spiritual life and hope is absent from the lives of most Czechs. More than 60% have no religious affiliations. Working with the national church members is key for major impact.

 

Currently, we are in a stage of rebuilding our teams in the Czech Republic. Work is moving forward toward greater partnership with other mission agencies working in the Czech Republic.

 

NOTE: Mid-Term opportunities are only available for people who speak Czech.
