Step into the hushed echo of the Grand Place of Brussels and you will feel that you are stepping centuries into the past as you gaze up at the beautiful gilded architecture of the ancient central square. Just off the Grand Place you can have a taste of Belgium—rich, silky, smooth chocolate; sugary Liège waffles; or twice-fried potatoes, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. You will hear French and Dutch, and find two distinct corresponding cultures, the Walloons and the Flemish. Brussels is an international city, as it is home to the European Union and NATO, as well as many immigrants and visitors. Most Belgians have a Roman Catholic heritage, although few are actively involved. All, whether native Belgians, immigrants or visitors, need to know the love of Jesus.
During these sending experiences, the team members will serve alongside our missionaries at LifePoint Brussels. The July team will work with Serve the Church week in Brussels. Serve the Church is a ministry that was established to create cooperation between churches by serving each other. The October team will help lead conversation English groups, prayer walk throughout the week, serve at a senior center, assist with a service project to rehabilitate a home for refugees and disciple locals at LifePoint Brussels through community ministry involvement.
