SMG Church Planters

This is our hero page. The planters and ministers here have given their lives to the Lord's work in their cities around Europe. They are often under-manned and under-resourced, but their faith and work is diligent and their service is sacrificial. They are all planting a harvest of righteousness and it is an honor to serve them and to present them to you. Please consider partnering with them in prayer and financial support.
