Some European countries, such as Switzerland, enjoy a long heritage as missionary sending nations. The SIM Switzerland office in Bienne is dedicated to recruitment and public relations.
By faith we see more missionaries and more support for the mission field coming from Christians and churches in Switzerland. SIM Switzerland, officially known as “SIM International (Suisse),” is part of the mission organization “SIM: Serving in Mission.”
We desire to glorify God by contributing to the advancement of his kingdom by:
The SIM-UK office in Wetheringsett is the service provider and hub for the various SIM entities in Europe. A strong partnership between these enables maximum cooperation and effectiveness for the sake of the kingdom.
The SIM Switzerland office in Bienne is dedicated to recruitment and public relations. It produces the SIM magazine in French, Italian, and German and serves as liaison office for SIM Italy. Through partner organizations in Austria, Romania, and Portugal, it encourages missionary movements in those countries. Other partnering options are actively pursued.
Some European countries, such as Switzerland, enjoy a long heritage as missionary sending nations. Some other countries, particularly those having been confined behind the “Iron Curtain,” are now discovering their call to participate in the great harvest. They might contribute to a new dimension of persevering faith in SIM.
In many parts of Europe, the percentage of evangelicals is lower than 1%. The need for missionaries in these countries is as desperate as in other areas where SIM is active. Therefore the task of stimulating vision for world mission goes along with encouraging small struggling evangelical churches.
