With 37 affiliated movements, some almost 100 years old and others very new, Europe is a diverse region. A recent survey found that very few movements were regularly seeing students come to know Christ. It was an indication of the widespread spiritual decline Europe has witnessed in this generation. In response, IFES national movements are working together to support one another in evangelism, by sharing resources, experience and training evangelists.

In December 2019, 3,000 students and graduates from across Europe gathered for Revive, the IFES Europe student evangelism conference. They left revived in their own faith, equipped to share Jesus with their friends on campus, and eager to see revival spread across the region. Read how the conference changed one graduate in Switzerland.

The region is in a time of significant change. Conversations surrounding sexuality, mental health, immigration and freedom of speech have spread across campuses throughout the continent. IFES national movements are seeking to equip their students and graduates to engage in these conversations with cultural sensitivity and a biblical worldview.
