EUROPE PRAYER INITIATIVE TEAM
WHO WE ARE
The intention of the Europe Prayer Initiative Team (EPIT) is to come alongside you with encouragement, prayer, and resources. The effects of physical and spiritual burnout among missionaries and their families led Regional Director Paul and Angela Trementozzi and the Europe Leadership Team to implement the Europe Prayer Initiative. They prayerfully began a journey to make missionary health—spiritual, emotional, and physical—a priority across the Region.
Angela was asked to form a team that would find preventative medicine for missionaries and partnering national pastors to enhance both their intimacy with the Lord and ministry to others, also minimizing attrition. This intentional soul care for onsite missionaries would help lay a firm foundation for accelerated church planting by means of evangelism.
WHAT CAN THE TEAM OFFER YOU?
