With your help, we are reaching the lost on the least Christian continent.
While Europe has a Christian heritage, those who have a relationship with Jesus are only a remnant. Post-Christian Europe as a whole has less than 5% Bible-believing Christians, making Europe the least Christian continent in the world.
At Kontaktmission, we believe a key reason for our effectiveness is our principle of International Teams (for example, we put American missionaries on teams with nationals). We see giving, caring US churches and individuals as parts of that team. Just like the Philippian church, the local US church has a “partnership in the Gospel” with the missionary and the church on the field. This partnership should not be limited to check-writing, newsletters, and occasional visits from the missionary, like in the old days – but should instead be a real and meaningful relationship between the sender and sent.
International: Not just lip service.
Many times, when an American-led church plant fails in a foreign land, it is because it could not transition from American leadership to national leadership. Kontaktmission avoids this pitfall by employing international leadership. We are not an American mission agency; we are an international mission agency that has some American leaders.
SEND. PLANT. MULTIPLY.
It’s not just a motto – it’s how we work, and what we're always aiming for! We send Christian workers and team them with local leaders. We plant churches in places where the church does not exist or is not strong enough to stand on its own. We expect churches not just to multiply in number, but also to become sending and planting churches themselves.
Done the European way, in EUROPE.
How should churches be planted in Europe? Nothing fails quicker than an American-cultured church that’s been planted in another part of the world. We are bringing the GOSPEL not culture. Because Kontaktmission was started in Europe by Europeans, we are successfully planting churches there.
WHAT DOES A "PARTNERSHIP" WITH KONTAKTMISSION LOOK LIKE?
There is more than one way to partner with KM. Let’s be honest, we are a mission agency; we will happily receive a check from a church or individual who doesn’t want to be involved any deeper than that. However, what we encourage, what we hope for, is an interaction between missionary and supporting church or individual. Paul spoke to the Philippian church about their “partnership in the Gospel” with him. Our hope is that supporting churches and individuals will partner in real ways that allow influence in each other’s lives and callings, such as: field visits, prayer partnering, support for special projects, serving with a VBS or camp missionaries, stateside visits, etc.

In most cases, KMUSA uses 9% of gifts received to help offset administrative costs. This helps fund a long list of services the KMUSA office provides for our missionaries so they can concentrate on the most important work – bringing God’s love and truth to all of Europe!

WE ARE MULTINATIONAL!
of all Europeans have no relationship with Jesus Christ.
Kontaktmission is a networked mission movement empowering Christians worldwide to live out their God-given callings, and sending them out for the building up of His church.
We've discovered that our "international idea" of connecting people and ministries opens doors for the gospel helps avoid common mistakes, and makes missions much more effective.
