Country Profile: Poland


Poland gained nationhood in the 10th Century. It has had a tumultuous history of being weakened, divided and occupied by many other nations since this time. During World War II one quarter of the population died. Communist rule was imposed in 1945, but poverty and labour turmoil led to the Solidarity Movement protests and a multiparty democracy in 1989. Poland joined the EU in 2004 and continues to see political, social and economic progress. The nation has a population of approximately 38 million people. Spiritually, Poland is a bastion of Catholicism. The vast majority of Poles would call themselves Catholic, though the number of devout adherents is declining, especially in the cities. Less than 1% of Poland’s population are Bible believing Christians with over 700 towns having no life-giving church and over 42,000 villages having no Bible believing church.

NLI has been involved in church planting and leadership training in Poland since the mid 90s with around 20 congregations being commenced. The next phase of involvement for the NLI Network is the 700miast (700towns) vision. Leaders will be trained and mentored to plant churches in the 723 towns with no viable Gospel witness.
