As Hellenic Ministries we host various events and conferences throughout the year
Like everywhere pastors and ministers are dedicated to giving and serving others. It is often a very demanding and sometimes draining responsibility. As we looked at all the pastors around Athens and Greece we asked ourselves, how could we best express our appreciation for their hard work? Pastor’s Refresh Conference was birthed answering this question.
The Pastor’s Refresh Conference is an annual conference dedicated to minister to pastors and ministers in Greece. Every year we host the conference in a hotel right outside of Athens for a weekend away and invite different speakers from Greece and around the world to encourage all the local ministry leaders. We invite the pastors and ministers to experience the benefit of the relaxing facilities. It is invariably a wonderful and blessed time and we love being able to bless our fellow workers in Christ in such a practical way.
We subsidize the cost of each pastor and minister in order to maximize the blessing to each. If the Lord places it on your heart to give, any financial gift great or small, would be truly appreciated.
Attended by youth, put on by youth, and led by youth, Exit provides an opportunity for youth to passionately live out their faith within the city of Athens. In such a spiritually dry nation, young evangelicals are hungry to be the hands and feet of the gospel. In 2012, three young men asked the question, how do we meet this need? They created Exit events to offer an opportunity for the Greek youth to serve and simultaneously reach the homeless.
Exit pours into the youth through corporate worship and a time of teaching and fellowship. They then take this ministry to the streets, where they encounter person after person begging for money, food, and shelter. There is no place for these impoverished people to go, and they struggle daily to find food. The youth at Exit bring full meals to the homeless, and cover each encounter with prayer.
Exit needs your help through prayer and financial support. Pray for a revival here in Greece through the next generation. Pray for the safety of the youth as they walk the streets of Athens after dark. Pray for divine encounters with each person in need. Financially, we need partners in order to continue buying supplies for the meals that are shared.
