Our VISION is to see Latvia transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ.
Our PASSION is to help Latvians know, love and follow the Lord Jesus Christ with all of their hearts.
Our OBJECTIVES focus on Outreach, Mobilization, Leadership, and Mercy.
Outreach – We help Latvians know, love and follow Christ through creative target group initiatives, often in partnership with other ministries. Signature programs include Hope ’99 and Eagle’s Wings Camp.
Mobilization – We create vision and opportunity for American and Latvian individuals, churches and ministries to develop missionary hearts. As a result many strategic partnerships have been established between East and West focusing on many aspects of Latvian life and society. Signature programs include Mission Days and Mission Ireland.
Leadership – We strengthen Latvian leaders for effective ministry within Latvia and beyond. Signature programs include Prayer Days and significant involvement with Baltic Pastoral Institute.
Mercy – We reach out to the “least of these” in Latvian society. Signature programs include Celebrate Recovery Latvia which equips churches to serve those struggling with destructive ‘hurts, habits and hangups’; and New Hope Latvia which reaches out to orphans and orphanages.
