What we do
We support the work of churches and Christian organizations worldwide
Together with and on behalf of the Reformed Churches -liberated- in the Netherlands (RCN), Verre Naasten supports initiatives of churches, thgeological institutes and Christian organizations worldwide. We choose to work in partnership with local churches and organizations, because we believe they are primarily responsible to be witnesses of Jesus and to show signs of God’s Kingdom in their own contexts. Moreover, we believe that local churches and organizations are best equipped to proclaim the Gospel in ways that are fitting and effective in their societies.
Verre Naasten supports partners in the following fields of work:
- Church development
- Evangelism and Media
- Diaconate and Advocacy (in church and community)
- Training and Capacity Building
- Emergency relief
Countries where our partners are located include:
Europe: Albania, Austria, Great Brittain, Lithuania, Spain, Ukraine
Africa: Benin, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic Congo, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda
Asia: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Sri Lanka
Central and South America: Brazil, Cuba, Surinam, Venezuela
We facilitate inter-church and inter-cultural fellowship and learning
Verre Naasten brings together Christians from different churches and cultural backgrounds for fellowship, trainings, courses, consultations. As churches and Christian organizations, we are given to one another to encourage and strengthen each other. Apart from celebrating our fellowship, we can learn from each other’s expertise and experience to increase the impact of our ministries. We believe that together with all the Lord’s holy people, we can truly begin to grasp how wide and long and high and deep Christ’s love is, and know that this love surpasses knowledge (derived from Ephesians 3).
We support churches in the Netherlands in their commitment to Mission
In Reformed churches in the Netherlands, Verre Naasten shares stories from Christ’s worldwide church. With these testimonies we hope to:
- raise thanksgiving, prayer, commitment and financial support for global Mission
- strengthen relationships between Dutch and non-Dutch churches
- learn as Dutch Christians from our brothers and sisters worldwide
- inspire and encourage Dutch Christians to share their faith.
