ZLIN, CZECH REPUBLIC

Zlín remained a sleepy little village until the early 1900s, when the Bata shoe factory brought rapid development. Today, it’s a business destination known for rich culture and modern architecture. Despite the region’s early Christian roots, today only about 0.5 percent of all Czechs are evangelical Christians. In this city so desperately in need of the gospel, MTW Zlín is helping a Czech pastor and his leadership team plant a small church.

Our primary work is equipping Czechs to become disciples of Jesus who share the good news with others. Due to their deeply ingrained skepticism about religion and mistrust of anyone unfamiliar to them, earning an opportunity to speak the gospel takes a long time. Yet, through our Sunday school program, evangelistic events, and teen discipleship efforts, we have seen God raising up a new generation of believers who are actively evangelizing their friends. It is our hope that God would work in and through the church in Zlín to transform the Czech Republic and bring many to saving faith.
