From Brenda Taylor - Missionary to Ireland
My heart's desire is to connect with the Irish people so that they can know we care,
that we love them & that Jesus does too. With these relationships we find opportunities
to share the Gospel. My hope is that we would help many Irish know Jesus as their
living Savior, the source of all hope. My gifts and abilities are directed in the areas of
connecting, evangelism, discipleship & mentoring. I am learning how to best serve and
minister to the needs of the Irish here in Limerick. I believe that the details of my ministry
will change as needs arise but my focus will always be about the Gospel.
From Scott & Andrea Chatterson - Ireland
We have been called by God to serve with TEAM in Limerick, Ireland. For the last 10+ years the Lord has been shaping our hearts for Discipleship ministry. we have a passion to help deepen believers faith & understanding about their relationship with Jesus Christ. So often people get saved & then get left in the pipe line of Christendom with little guidance or direction. As a result many churches have believers sitting in pews week after week feeling inadequate in their relationship with Christ. As a result of this passion the Lord has opened a door for us to serve in Limerick, Ireland, with the Limerick Christian Centre. With less than 1.5% evangelicals in the Republic of Ireland our work is paramount & the folks of LCC have opened their hearts to welcome us to serve with them. With a 75% rise of Atheism in the country in the last 2 years the need to arrive now is ever more urgent.

From Caitlin Leamon - Ireland
Caitlin is thrilled to be joining the Ireland TEAM! She has been praying for an opportunity to work with Irish youth for over two years and God has given her this opportunity in Swords. She will be joining the Swords Baptist Youth Leaders as soon as she gathers all of her needed support, but is excited to be inviting people to join her in this journey.
From Bruce Taylor - Missionary to Ireland
For many years Christianity has been in decline in Ireland. Less than half of one percent of the people in the Limerick area have a living relationship with Jesus. There has been growth over the last generation in Atheism, Druidism and those who just claim no beliefs at all. along with this has been a rise in drug abuse, depression and suicide. Our burden is for the young Irish generation who are walking this dark path. The Irish people need Hope and true Hope can only be found through Jesus. The Gospel message and God's Word need to be at the center of what we do.
