As a community, our vision is to release Gospel mission into the 22 post communist nations of Europe in 15 years. We train, equip, support and send pioneering leaders, in order to see gospel mission produce 22 Indigenous, reproducing church communities. To this end, we have developed the Catch 22 Strategy.


The Catch 22 Strategy – Equity not Equality

The Catch 22 Strategy embraces the economic disparity of European nations and responds with equity. We believe that Gospel mission should always be served apostolically but gospel mission into impoverished nations should also be accompanied with ongoing, economic and pastoral support as well. Those we send we serve and support.


Those we send are drawn into a two year programme of fellowship, pastoral care and support.

Pioneering leaders are able to access this programme either:

  • from within their country of ministry, having already relocated;
  • or from within their sending nation, up to six months prior to relocation into their host nation.

The LHC draws pioneering leaderstogetherin orderto gather. We are served by the apostolic leadership team of Relational Mission, led by Mike Betts.

Maurice Nightingale – one of the LHC Directors – provides us with apostolic leadership and together we serve the RM mandate to plant churches into all the nations of Europe.

The LHC is positioned at the very heart of the RM family and we are served by a host of opportunities to be equipped pastorally, evangelistically, prophetically and apostolically.

This support is available to all RM churches and church plants.
