Lift-Off retreat: Praying into the Promised Land

Lift-Off 2022

Are you a student and do you have the desire that your friends and fellow students get to know Jesus? If so, you should sign up for the Lift-Off!

Lift-Off is a weekend where you can deepen your own relation with God, where you can learn how to share your faith, and where you will meet other students who have the same desire for spreading the gospel. All of this will help you to grow in faith, hope and love!

This year, our theme will be ‘Praying into the Promised Land’. Prayer was of paramount importance for the people of Israel as they were travelling to the Promised Land. The same holds true for us! When we start sharing our faith, we should be moved by the needs of the people around us, we should be looking for Gods presence constantly and we should step out in faith, following His directions. We will delve deep into these subjects, taking the prayers of Moses in Exodus 32 en 33 as our guideline.

Sign up for the Lift-Off by filling out the form you find at the bottom of this page. If paying the indicated sum of money is challenging for you at the moment, please contact us at

What is the Christian faith all about?

Book Recommendation: Basic Christianity by the late John Stott

In this classic book John Stott explains the basic message of the Christian faith.

  • who did Jesus claimed to be?
  • what did he try to accomplish?
  • what should be ‘our’ response?

Agape Europe – Our Values

In Agape Europe we conduct our lives and work based on these foundational values


The overriding principle of our lives as Christians is the recognition of God’s supremacy. We commune with Him in prayer, we expect divine guidance and intervention, and we seek to make ourselves available for His use.


Humble dependence on God should characterise our Christian life. By living Spirit-filled lives, we expect to see God move through us as a ministry and as individuals to accomplish the tasks He has given us and help build His Kingdom.


Demonstrated unity speaks loudly to the people of our time. As we move forward to accomplish God’s work, we need to love and embrace one another as brothers and sisters in the faith. This starts within our own organisation, but also sets the standard for cooperation with others.


No matter how professional, well planned or strategic our activities may be, they still need to be relevant to the people of today. We need to communicate and act in ways that are culturally appropriate, understandable and attractive, but without compromising on biblical values.


The result of our work should be visible in fruit as defined by God’s Word. Our hope is to see conversion, changed lives, church growth and evidence of spiritual maturity in individuals. This causes us to evaluate the work we do, willing and ready to adjust our strategies.


Two obvious signs of growth should be spiritual multiplication and the existence and expansion of our movements. We also want to see our staff, volunteers and disciples actively growing in their faith, and the growth of our organisational capacity to keep pace with our movements.

Mission Possible updates

Students having conversations on campus about God and the meaning of life. See more here 

Update on conversations with students on campus September 2015 see here. 

It has been another very good Mission Possible in Rotterdam yesterday at the University. We had good conversations with students about world-views and the Christian faith. We are looking forward to follow up meetings with some of them.

What I also like about Mission Possible is that student unions from different organizations participate too. As many times it happens ‘mission unites’.

Mission Possible The Hague

Great new beginnings in 2014 in The Hague university with Mission Possible events. Agape staff came to give training to the Navigators, Ichthus and IFES Den Haag students on how to use three conversation starters: 1. Perspective cards 2. Solarium cards 3. Questionnaires.

Students were encouraged, challenged and equipped to reach out and share about their faith with others studetns. It is a nice and nonthreatening way to approach students and have short conversations related to their world-views. Usually students are ready to share about their opinion on different topics.

Mission Possible continues in 2015! There is lots of enthusiasm and good participation.
