The Charis Alliance first entered Europe at the conclusion of World War II, beginning in France (1951), then spreading to Germany (1969). Subsequent pioneer missionary efforts focused on the United Kingdom (1982), Portugal (1990), Ireland (2002), and Poland (2015).
Currently in Europe there are about twelve churches associated with the Charis Alliance, and ten Points of Light. Europeans are leading the way in developing creative ways to introduce the unchanging message of hope in Jesus Christ into the rapidly changing environment of post-modern Europe. Europeans enrich the global Charis Alliance through their insights into culture, their innovative approaches to evangelism and discipleship, and their capacity to build bridges among evangelicals.
