A new church in Brussels
Brussels is both one of the most influential cities in the world and one of the places with the fewest witnesses of Jesus Christ. Matthieu and Olivier are part of a very small number of Belgian Christians, and have been called to proclaim the gospel in Brussels. Their goal is to plant a new church in the center of the city and to work hand in hand with existing churches in order to ignite a movement of the gospel in Brussels through church planting and church renewal.
