The Mission!

First Word

Hi, we are John and Shakila Olsen founders of Send the Light Amsterdam (Stl) a contemporary church. Together with our family we serve God through serving one another! We believe in the unity of the body of Christ gathering around His presence. It is our passion and motivation to see people stepping into an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father and to see them discovering their calling in live, elevating in that what they are called for; fulfilling their purpose in Christ!

 

We partnership with key organizations with local expertise: Save City; outreach within the heart of Amsterdam, Bright Fame; reaching out to prostitutes in the Amsterdam Red light district, CBMC; Empowering Chritians businesses, Sunday Lunchroom; inviting local people to enjoy an affordable lunch/dinner enabling the church to get acquainted with our neighbourhood and bridging the gap towards those living in a distance from the Love of Christ! 

We are on a mission establishing God’s kingdom in our city, embracing all opportunities to make a tangible difference in our local neighbourhoods and within our global community!

We believe in new creative ways in God to reach out to people. We step out in boldness to pioneer new ways of ministering to others. We believe in the power of impartation, equipping believers through teaching and displaying the Kingdom, and the commissioning given by Jesus to take the Gospel to the ends of the world. Following is a presentation of some of our activities. We hope this will inspire you, and invite you to join us in our mission!
