Country Profile: Estonia


Bordered by the Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea, Latvia and Russia, the Republic of Estonia is one of the states of the Baltic region of northern Europe. Considered one of the most technologically sophisticated and advanced countries in the world, Estonia formally declared its independence from the Soviet Union on August 20, 1991. This followed the 1989, “Singing Revolution“, a landmark demonstration for more independence featuring a human chain of more than two million people, stretching through Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Next Level International has a long history in Estonia. Partnering with the Estonian Christian Pentecostal Church (EKNK), NLI has engaged in leadership training with emerging leaders, advanced leaders and most recently with women in leadership. The EMERGE (leadership development for women) training events were held in Tallinn in the Fall of 2011, 2012 and 2013 with significant impact. Ago Lilleorg, pastor of the EKNK church in Tallinn, serves currently as a trainer with the NLI Network in Lithuania.
