Malta’s densely populated Islands are rich in cultural expressions of faith, with a calendar shaped by the rituals of the historic institution. However many live without hope, alienated from a relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ. Relatively recent divisions of the church from the state have meant many experienced the limitation of religious freedom. Especially those who make up the less than half a per cent of the population identifying as Evangelical/Pentecostal. Malta's participation in the European Union has increased both her connectedness to the rest of Europe and fuelled a drive toward secular ideals. Church plants here are still in their first generation and ECM’s involvement in the work here has just begun. There is a heart for seeing local leaders raised and released in ministry and church planting through the Islands and to the nations.
Malta is a strategic location for regular events that train workers who are local and foreign in hard to reach communities internationally for ministry and church planting in these regions. Particularly those places with adverse religious, legal and political conditions.
Maltese Bible College, University Student and Refugee Ministry also exist on Malta.
ECM longs for ...
Malta also needs the Gospel. If you feel involved in this country and are interested to spread God's good news on this particular spot, we invite you to contact ECM International. ECM is planting churches throughout Europe.
