Bringing life to spiritually dying Europe requires some out of the box thinking. In 2012 European Initiative was privileged to engage in many creative forms of unconventional ministry. The Lord’s vision to reach His creation is simply astounding and it never ceases to amaze me how His ways are SO much greater than ours! 2013 is already shaping up to be a wild ride in Europe for European Initiative, as we look forward with expectancy to how His plans will unfold.
“You are no longer my son. You are dead to me and I never want to see you again!” Spoken by a Jewish father to his son, after hearing of the son’s new faith in Jesus.
The Jewish son is Sam Rotman, one of European Initiative’s partners in reaching Jewish people in Europe. Sam is an extremely gifted classical pianist, and at his concerts he shares his extraordinary journey of faith. EI recently invited Sam to Europe for an extensive tour that included concerts in Brussels, Paris, Berlin, and Cologne. Sam’s concerts entertain his European audiences, but it is his riveting testimony that he shares at the end of each performance that changes their lives.
European Initiative recently hosted acclaimed pianist Samuel Rotman in Berlin, Germany, and Warsaw, Poland, where he performed 11 concerts. Mr. Rotman is considered one of the top 8 Beethoven pianists in the world, having trained at The Julliard School in New York City.
