Planting Churches Among Cathedrals

Located at the geographic center of the continent of Europe, the Czech Republic has been an important crossroads in European history since the time of Christ. Some of the oldest castles, encampments and trade routes in the entire continent can be found on Czech soil. The seat of the Holy Roman Empire for centuries, and the birthplace of Jan Huss, an important forerunner of Luther and the Reformation, Czech, also known as Bohemia throughout history, is a critically important link in the history and present-day chemistry of Europe. Its capital, Prague, remains one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world, with numerous cathedrals and monasteries that have survived architecturally because the city sustained little bombing during World War 2. But while stones and iron still hold these ancient houses of worship together, decades of Soviet domination and centuries of religious politicization have left this thriving, modern city beneath a cloud of spiritual darkness.

Yet despite the cold spiritual climate, an awakening is brewing in the land. In homes, churches and coffeehouses, Czech people are gathering to explore the life, teachings and relevance of the person of Jesus Christ. Several TEAM ministry initiatives have put down deep roots in the hard soil of central Europe that are beginning to bear exciting fruit for the Kingdom of God.

Quick Facts

  • The Czech Republic has a population of 10.5 million people, of which only about 2% are Protestants and less than 1% considered Evangelical Christian.

  • Recent polling places the Czech Republic among the most atheistic countries in the world, with somewhere around 85% of the population refusing any belief in God.

  • In most cases Czech atheism stems not from an active rejection of God, but from never giving any serious consideration to the issue; the question of God is seldom raised.
