MOSTY Building Gospel Bridges in Prague, Czech Republic

Short term
Prague, Czech Republic

6-12 months, 1-2 years

Picture yourself walking the streets of Prague. You pass breathtaking churches and enter one of them. Inside, you get a sense of heavenly majesty. Along the street there are statues of saints and angels and you can’t escape the sense that this is a place that has a long Christian history. 

Digging below the surface though, this self-proclaimed atheist nation is one of the most post-Christian nations in the world. The church, as an institution, is not central to Czech culture and most people have never met anyone who follows Jesus. Today, only 35,000 out of 10.5 million (around 0.3%) people in Czech identify as evangelical believers and the church is often isolated and on the margins. But there is hope and the time is ripe for the gospel. 

MOSTY is the Czech word for bridges. The internship is part of a collaborative. The internship is part of a collaborative project to support the development of missional communities and churches. We are praying that MOSTY has a significant place in helping to build gospel bridges in Prague and beyond.
