The Czech Republic is one of the most atheistic countries in the world, with approximately 60% of Czechs calling themselves atheists. The SEND team works with existing evangelical Czech churches that are passionate for evangelism, discipleship, and starting new churches.
Decades of Soviet atheism strongly influenced the Czech people – creating one of the most secular countries in the world. While most are more agnostic than truly atheistic, it does paint a picture of spiritual apathy. As one Czech theology student from a liberal school said, “I believe that there’s some higher power but I can’t say that it’s some god like God.” Less than 0.5% of Czechs are members of evangelical churches.
SEND Czech Republic longs to see many more Czechs come to a transforming relationship with Christ and churches passionately radiate the truth of His grace. SEND’s partnership with churches can mean sharing the gospel by teaching English or engaging people by using sports as a relational platform. For missionaries who learn the Czech language, more doors are opened for spending time with Czechs, sharing hearts and lives, as well as doing Bible teaching and discipleship. The goal is to come alongside and help them facilitate the Great Commission by living out the Great Commandment (Mt. 22:37-40).
SEND’s ministry in the Czech Republic began in 1992. Currently the SEND Czech team has personnel in Prague and Litomerice.
