40 for 40

Summer Missionary Journeys

The Vision

During the onset of the Covid pandemic in 2020, the world experienced a standstill. During this time, EI’s Founder Jeff Serio cried out for guidance from the Lord. God sovereignly answered and gave him vision to to mobilize 40 Christians for 40 days on an Acts 13 type missionary journey throughout Europe. Traveling north, south, east, and west, these teams would plow pathways for the gospel — sharing the hope of Christ with a shaken Europe.

The Impact

2022 will be EI’s third year to mobilize a 40 for 40 team. Already we have witnessed God move powerfully in and through these teams to impact lives in Italy, Greece, Ukraine, France, Macedonia, Turkey, Spain, Serbia, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and more. Not only is the gospel being advanced in these unprecedented times, but the hearts of European Christians are being ignited to reach the lost in their own cities and nations!

In 2021, in order to better accommodate Europeans’ academic schedules, 20 for 20 was launched. To learn more about EI’s 20 day mission trip in Europe, please contact us.

The Mission

During 40 for 40, team members primarily engage with unbelievers in one-on-one conversations in high pedestrian areas such as parks, city squares, etc., resulting in thousands of Europeans hearing the gospel. Teams partner with local churches and ministries for evangelism outreaches; new believers and seekers are then connected with the local church where they can learn more and be further discipled. Few Europeans understand the deeper meaning of their lives and the majority do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe now is the time to engage in the spiritual battle for Europe!
