Our Mission: Lithuania

Lithuania, though independent from the former Soviet Union for almost 15 years, still shows the effects of living under communist occupation.  The Evangelical Reformed Church of Lithuania, a small reformed denomination with 5 active congregations and just two ordained ministers hope to re-establish the reformed faith that was once quite vibrant in Lithuania.  Under the leadership of  the Rev. Algimantas Kvedaravicius, a former physicist for thirty years and now a pastor of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Lithuania (ERCL), the ERCL is in the early stages of replanting the denomination and more vibrant churches.

 

 Students from Lithuania are eagerly desiring to study biblical theology and while working out the details of the program in Lithuania, some of the Lithuanian Christians have already started taking classes at the Baltic Reformed Theological Seminary supported by ITEM with finds and professors.
