Message from Chrissy Talent

Hi! My name is Chrissy Talent and I am humbled and blessed by this opportunity to join the Apex Athens team. The Lord has redeemed my life in amazing ways, and I want to share His love with the entire world. God has placed His mission for the world on my heart and, after much prayer, has called me to Athens. I pray that He uses me to spread the good news of His sacrifice and love for us to Athens this summer. Prayers and financial support are both greatly appreciated! May the earth be filled with God's glory!

Trip Overview

Experience first-hand the challenges and joys of a church plant in Athens, Greece. Serve alongside local believers, engage in community outreach, build relationships for Christ, and explore how your gifts can help expand a new church.

Although traditionally a Christian nation, most Greeks today do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The evangelical movement amounts to less than 0.2% of the population, and for over 20 years, Greece had not seen a new church established within the evangelical community. Our heart and vision is to see multiple churches planted, that will embrace their communities in a Christ-like fashion. As an Apex team member, you are invited to join this vision by participating in one of the Athens church planting efforts.

Activities you may be engaged in include: neighborhood children's festivals, events/workshops in our Community Center, spending time with people in the community, leading small group Bible studies, sports, service to refugees. It may be helpful to know that the Greek culture is very relational and places secondary value to productivity. This means that friendship building takes priority over task completion.

Travel within the city is very affordable, and it has a very good bus and Metro service. For housing, you may be required to share an apartment with other team members. The Greek food is affordable and delicious!

Two thousand years ago, the apostle Paul spent time in the city of Athens, helping people find new life in Christ. Don't miss the opportunity to do the same today.
