Mission Europe was founded in 1991 in order to carry out evangelist Kalevi Lehtinen’s missions and mission related training activities. Mission Leningrad '90, Mission Leningrad ’91, Mission Volga’92 and Ural Mission '94 are the best-known examples of these missions.
Today Mission Europe is strongly supporting ChristDay Prayer Coverage movement and other mission initiatives especially in Ural region, in Russia.
Barnabas Institute, which is a fruit from Mission Volga ’92, also continues in Russia. Training programs are aimed to equip pastors and church members spiritually and train them with various skills and approaches needed in evangelism and discipleship. Program covers include theological and pastoral care topics.
The main fruit of earlier outreach Missions can best be seen in how missions and other evangelistic outreaches have been or resulting emerging new church communities.
