A Big Impact - Fall Conference Tour

In 1629, Jan Comenius, Bishop of the Brethren Church, fled to the hills of this European region and prayed that God would preserve a hidden seed of the Church because he felt like the Church was dying.


As an answer to this prayer, in 1690, in the small Moravian town of Zenklava, Christian David was born. The plaque at his house calls him, “an exile, founder of Herrnhut, co-renewer of the Unity of the Brethren, a witness to the gospel among the heathen.” His leadership and faith caused huge ripple effects and the gospel was spread to many parts of the world through him.


Today, that seed of the Church is still being preserved by God here where leaders like Vahur, from Estonia, are being inspired by stories of the Moravian missionaries of the past. 


Like Dave Patty, JV president, said this morning on our conference tour, “Small places can sometimes have a big impact.”
