The Sound of a Clear Call in Europe

'Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes? Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?' 1 Corinthians 14:6-8

In this passage Paul shares the importance of interpreting what God is saying. The metaphor of a rally call to battle is a disturbing image for what the Spirit is saying. As Fusion visit and meet leaders across Europe we sense that there is a war for students to come into the Kingdom and a battle for the church to lead in student mission.

What hope do we have of winning these battles?

We have huge hope! Jesus' victory at the cross defeated satan, sin and death forever. Now the veil is torn, the Spirit is unleashed on and empowering God’s beloved children - the church. The breath of God in the church means we can say the local church is the hope of the student world in Europe. Fusion's role is to encourage the church to enter the battlefield of student mission with confidence, creativity and courage.

I recently visited the Church of the Holy Spirit in Heidelberg in Germany. The building has been standing for over 600 years and for hundreds of those years, right up until the 1930s, there was a partition dividing Catholics and Protestants. Walls must come down for the church to effectively live in God’s mission. The partition between the church and students is one such barrier that must fall for student mission to be more fruitful.

As Fusion in Europe we want to encourage the local church to lead in making disciples in the universities. All kinds of churches, shapes and sizes, colours and sounds are being called onto the battlefield of God's mission with students. The workers in this harvest field are waiting to be commissioned by the church. Fusion in Europe are getting ready to equip this new uprising of workers

How can you enter the battlefield?

  • Encourage a church in Europe to create a profile by inviting churches onto This is a declaration of war to the powers that hinder students finding churches.
  • Host a gathering. Do you know churches in Europe that want to help more churches in their nation connect with students and are equipped in student mission?
  • Pray for more workers. Would you join the growing network of passionate advocates for churches praying for and working with students in Europe?

We'd love to hear your perspective and how you're responding to the call.
