Dear Friends,

Summer is here and it is creating an urban movement. Everywhere in Europe, millions are visiting the cities. You can see it in Amsterdam, Athens, Rome, Stockholm, Paris and all the other great European cities.
Often these visitors will visit a church building like St Basil's Cathedra, the Sagrada Familia or the Kölner Dom as part of their tour. Possibly the only time of the year that they enter a church at all. 
As City to City Europe we are praying for and working on an urban movement too. We want to see a movement of the gospel in the cities of Europe. The great cathedrals are historical testaments to the most beautiful message on this planet: The gospel of Jesus Christ. And we are longing for a movement of that gospel in the cities of Europe. If you visit a city or church this summer please take a moment to pray for a movement of the gospel in all the people, in all of the cities of Europe! 
This summer we have several things contributing to this movement:
Update: intensive-church-planter-training

This year we are hosting the first CTC intensive training in Europe. For 10 days a group of church planters from different European cities will come to Hamburg to hear stories, meet church planters and get intense training. They come to be equipped to go back and plant a new church as part of a gospel movement in their city. Our heart is to make training as accessible for church planters as possible, therefore we have decided to adapt our format this year and have opted for a shorter, 10-day intensive training. Please pray for the training that will be held from September 9th - 19th that it might equip the attending church planters and that they will come away from the training with new experiences of having encountered Jesus in the beauty of his gospel.


15 potential coaches from 7 different countries came together for a 3-day-training event. Dave Whitehead, coaching catalyst from Redeemer City to City and Bas van der Graaf facilitated the training. This training is embedded in a longer, half year trajectory, in which we work on the assessment and eventual certification of our coaches. Our goal is that in three years time every church planter and/or key leader in our network will have an affordable and CTC-certified coach available. Over the next few months, the participants will join six online meetings in triads, for further assessment. At the same time, we are preparing the second training event in Kiev, September 24-26. Some 12 potential coaches have already registered for the event, but there are still open spots!

City-Stories: Kiev

We are amazed to see how a City to City network started in 
CITY-NETWORK IN KIEV (population 3 million) in such a
short time! How did it happen? As church planting catalysts, Bobby and Teresa LaDage went toKiev in 2016 and had an initial meeting with a few Ukrainian pastors where they decided to hold an introductory conference. Over 150 attendees attended the Gospel in the City Conference inKiev. 

Since the conference, Nikolai (second from left on bottom) and Benjamin (first on left standing) have worked diligently on a minimal budget. They have taught ten gospel preaching labs with a to City Incubator (2 yr. program) with 12 participants from a total of 106 participants. This month, Nikolai and Benjamin finished teaching the first year of the CityKiev and five major cities in Ukraine. City to City Ukraine has a goal of 100 new churches in 5 key cities by 2030. These cities represent 10 million people. Please pray for more men and women for the harvest.

We pray for a gospel movement

Here are 3 things you can pray for: 

1. Pray that God sends workers to the field to plant churches in the cities of Europe. 
3. Pray for the gospel movement in Kiev
2. Pray for the intensive training - for a good group and power for the trainers.

Best regards
Stephan Pues and Team
