Fall of 2019 was a season of incredible growth for the International Church of Prague. Our weekly Sunday attendance was close to 300 for our English service with plus another 120 in our language congregations. We hosted our largest fall ministry fair with 28 ministries and small groups. We even hosted an English/Korean Christmas outreach that was incredibly beautiful.
The move to Online services was uneasy transition for ICP as we have been Livestreaming our services for quite some time. I spent the first 20 years of ministry behind the camera producing the messages of some of the best pastor's I have ever known. Moving to a ministry in front of the camera has been humbling however. But it has been a good opportunity to reuse former skills and to do production on location for the messages and from the Bridge Center for worship.
What has been most interesting however is that the lockdown in the Czech Republic eventually reached a limit of only 2 people. But what God has done is grow our Online presence to where now we often have over 1000 views each week for the services. And we are seek many new people in Prague begin to connect with the church who have not had a church home before. God is working in the midst of the virus to draw people to Himself. Pray that we will be effective in reaching more and more people with the Good News of Jesus Christ here in Prague.
