Mike and Caroline Miller
Serving in Greece
According to mission research websites like Joshua Project and Operation World, Greece has a population of about 10.5 million people with about half of one percent considered to be evangelical believers. To put this in perspective, Iran has about the same percentage of evangelical believers. Planting churches is one way to be an effective, long-term, evangelistic presence in Greece.
Mike and Caroline partner with and support the church planting initiatives of the Greek Evangelical Church in Athens. They moved from Charleston, SC to Athens in 2018 and are involved in all aspects of church planting in the Athens area. They also have developed a weekly ministry to area college students.
The Pangrati Project
A suburb near the Athens city center, Pangrati has a population of about 80k people. There are zero evangelical churches in this community. And, since church planting has proven to be the single most effective strategy for a long term presence in a community, the Pangrati church plant was officially launched last November. This is the main church plant with whom the Millers partner. The Pangrati Project, a team which the Millers coordinate, is continuing to host community events for the purpose of serving the community and meeting new people. The church is beginning to see a few people from the community attend church services and show an earnest desire to know about the Gospel. Ilias, a deaf, Greek, new believer, is now attending the Greek Bible college and the church has a growing ministry to deaf people.
We are grateful for the ministries that God has given us here in Athens and for the people we have the honor of working alongside.
We are thankful for you, our faithful support team who continue to bless us with your prayers and financial support.
Pray for those who have been coming to the Pangrati Church regularly but have not yet had a confession of faith in Christ.
Pray for the relationships that are being made in the community of Pangrati through the events and weekday work study space.
Pray for new Greek church planters and pastors. There are many more churches than there are pastors in Greece.
As always, keep praying for our language learning.
Pray for our daughter Ella's college application process.
Pray for our sons Silas and Jared
