Italy is famous for its art, architecture, food and design. Visitors come from all over the world to see the iconic Tuscan countryside or the canals of Venice. There is so much for a tourist to enjoy. But what about the hearts of the people? What about the spiritual plight of the Italian soul? A 2016 survey of 1,500 Italians found that, surprisingly, only 16% are practicing Catholics, attending some kind of religious function more than once a month. 20% self identify as "atheist." 64% do not affiliate with any particular religious community.

With Germany located in the center of Europe and the expanding European Union, the capital city of Berlin plays a strategic role in the Eurasian continent and even world.

Muslim Immigrant Sports Outreach

In recent years, a significant migration of people from the least-reached world to Europe has created urban villages in the midst of large cities. These urban villages contain large pockets of people who still maintain their language, customs, traditions, and social networks from their county of origin.

As the metropolitan city of Ecuador, Quito is loud and crowded, so the retreat center provides an opportunity for individuals and groups to get away and have a personal encounter with their God and Creator.

Sports Outreach & Arabic Language Study

As the heart of this Northeast African nation, this city is a vibrant, exhilarating, exotic, fascinating, and welcoming place. Home to some of the most ancient civilizations on earth, this city is punctuated by incredible, half-forgotten (and other, more famous) monuments of the past. One force above all others, however, has shaped this city and nation more than anything else in the last thousand years -- the religion of Islam. As the cries for change have echoed across the Arab world, the discontent lying under the surface in this society has become quite evident.
