Reaching Rotterdam: Every year, thousands of new migrants in the Rotterdam region become our new neighbors. Some of these cultures have hardly been reached with the gospel. We share God’s love and passion for these people and cultures.
Project: Reaching Rotterdam sees new blossoming communities of faith rising among the unreached people groups in Rotterdam in collaboration with the church in Rotterdam.
Reaching Rotterdam wants to carry out its mission by supporting churches and other mission organizations. Together with our partners in Rotterdam, we share our vision and mobilize prayer and workers for this purpose. We pray together, we work together and we learn together. Together with our partners, we look for people with a passion for other cultures in Rotterdam.
