The Moody's in Sweden

Church Planting in Uppsala
 

ABOUT US

 

OUR MINISTRY

     Adam, Stacey, and Elizabeth moved to Uppsala, Sweden in August 2011.  They originally began working alongside a team of 10 Campus Crusade missionaries sharing the Gospel among Uppsala’s almost 50,000 university students.  However, during that time God started to move on their hearts in a different way.  As they learned about the statistic that Uppsala is over 97% unchurched, God starting birthing in them a vision for planting a reproducible high impact church that believers and unchurched people will love to attend.  God has now shifted their ministry in this direction and they will be working together with Korskyrkan (The Cross Church), their Evangelical Free Church partner in Uppsala, Sweden to create a new type of church that will connect with the over 97% of people (out of 215,000+ in Uppsala) in the city who are not connected with Jesus. 
 

     The future hope as well is that this church plant will be a partner of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA (www.northpoint.org), who is also our sending church.  We are sent out through Pioneers, an international missions organization with over 3,000 workers in 100 countries worldwide, who focus mainly on the most unreached peoples.  You can check them out at www.pioneers.org.

WHY SWEDEN?

The Kingdom of Sweden is the largest country in Northern Europe and has a population of just over 10 million.  Though having a smaller population, Sweden and Swedish companies are widely known and have had a large impact throughout the world.  Companies such as IKEA, H&M, Electrolux, Volvo, Skype, and Spotify are just a few of the well-known Swedish brands.

 

The spiritual situation in Sweden is a bleak one at best and the church is in need of revival as churches are closing down every year.  The need for new churches that will help bring the life changing message of the Gospel to Sweden is huge.  Though 60% of Swedes are members of the Swedish Lutheran Church, only 2% of those actually attend, and many who attend are not even believers.  Overall Sweden is one of the most atheist and agnostic countries in the world, making Sweden one of the most spiritually impoverished nations in the world.  Free churches, which are non-Lutheran protestant churches make up just 2.5% of the Swedish population.  Twice as many Swedish churches are closing down, thena new ones being opened.  If the current rate of decline continues, there will be no more evangelical churches by 2050.  According to one study, there are also about 500,000 Muslims in Sweden, and internationals as a whole from countries all over the world make up 20% of Sweden's population.  These are people who have moved to Sweden as refugees, immigrants, and/or to study and work, and many of them come from countries where it is very difficult for missionaries to get into.

 

 

Typical Swedish Church Member

 

      Though the spiritual situation is bleak, God is great and there is a great opportunity in front of us!  Our Heavenly Father loves the people of Sweden and wants them to have a right standing and relationship with Him.  There is a great opportunity for to share the Gospel with Swedes and the internationals living in Sweden from countries all over the world.  The Evangelical Free church in Sweden has a passion and desire to see many more churches planted in Sweden. We have the exciting opportunity to partner with them as we move forward to start a church planting church in Sweden that we believe God will use to be a part of growing His Kingdom and seeing many people in Sweden come to faith in Him through Jesus.
