Open Missions Trips

In addition to organizing trips for churches and bible colleges, EI offers individuals the opportunity to serve in Europe on any of our open trips. An open trip is comprised of team members coming from different backgrounds, churches, and nations. Experience the diversity of the body of Christ as you minister and unite with believers from all over the world to reach the lost and expand God’s kingdom.

THE GOTH FEST – JUNE 2-6, 2022

Every year on Pentecost, more than 25,000 people travel to Leipzig, Germany, for the world’s largest Gothic festival. Yes, the Goth fest is visually shocking and not for the faint of heart. It is one of the most spiritually extreme trips of our year. But we ask you: if Jesus were to walk the earth today – would he go?

 

European Initiative invites you to join us for our 12th year of outreach at this event. After the festival, join our staff in Berlin for 4 more days of ministry in the German capital.
It is time for these lost sons and daughters to come home. Will you join us? Message us to sign up today.

40 FOR 40- June 25 - August 4, 2022

40 for 40 is an Acts 13 missionary journey throughout Europe. The vision was birthed in 2020, during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. As Europe reeled from the confusion and devastation of the crisis, God sovereignly spoke to EI’s Founder, Jeff Serio, to mobilize a team of 40 Christians to Europe for 40 days that summer. This team of 40 would divide into four teams that would embark on four missionary journeys going north, south, east, and west across Europe. After witnessing God powerfully working in and through the lives of the team to reach a lost Europe, EI mobilized its second 40 for 40 team in 2021. The four teams shared the gospel in Italy, Greece, Ukraine, France, Moldova, Turkey, Spain, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, and more. We are excited to announce we will be offering 40 for 40 again in 2022!

MISSION ROMANIA – 2023 DATES COMING SOON

This upcoming January, for the 13th consecutive year, European Initiative is leading an international team of Christians to Romania — one of Europe’s most impoverished nations — to bless the Roma (Gypsy) people. You are invited to join us for this life-changing outreach!

During the trip, the team will go home to home in Roma villages sharing the gospel, praying for the sick, and delivering essential food and clothing items to help the Roma survive the harsh winter months. The team will also encourage the local church, minister in public schools, and more.

Even today, the Roma are still despised and marginalized by society, making it a struggle for them to receive fair education and job opportunities. As a consequence, they are often enslaved by addiction, poverty and lifeless forms of religion. Yet Christ came to set the captives free — this is your opportunity to be His hands and feet and release hope to the hopeless. To apply for Mission Romania, message us.

Estimated Ground Cost: 400€ / $475 (airfare not included)

MISSION UKRAINE – 2023 DATES COMING SOON

Every February, EI mobilizes a team of international Christians to western Ukraine to reach the impoverished and forgotten. While years of communism, conflict, and corruption have created much hardship for the Ukrainian people, Jesus remains the solution.

Join us on our mission in Ukraine to see lives transformed by the gospel. Outreaches will include going home-to-home sharing the gospel and distributing food staples in Roma villages, loving and serving impoverished and at-risk children, and encouraging the local church. Contact us today to learn more and/or sign up. Your life can make a difference.

 

Estimated Ground Cost: $520/455€ (airfare not included)
