Royal Mission was started in May 2009 by Martin and Karin Koornstra with a strong desire for the breakthrough of God’s Kingdom. We are captivated by the commission that Jesus gives to his disciples in Matthew 10:7-8. “Go and proclaim, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the sick, and cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely you must give!’
Who are we?
Since 2009, Royal Mission has grown into an enthusiastic and colorful movement with enormous passion for God’s beautiful restoration plan for this world. We want to proclaim the Kingdom of God and train others to do the same. Based on our passion for the kingdom of God, we dream of a revival of the church in the Netherlands and beyond, so that the ‘royal church’ comes into being. We believe that His kingdom becomes visible through the church. That is why we want to equip Christians from all churches and backgrounds to grow as followers of Jesus so that they can take their place back in the local church. In short: Passion for the royal church.
We dream of a revival in the church in the Netherlands. We long for a new focus on spiritual growth and following Jesus. That’s why we’re passionate about seeing more Christians from all churches and backgrounds grow through knowledge of the Kingdom and the power of the Holy Spirit. So that the church in the Netherlands can fully blossom through young and old and our country will experience God’s love. We invite you to join us in this royal adventure.
Our passion for the royal church
Our passion to proclaim becomes visible through accessible inspiration events throughout the country. For example, through our speaking engagements, youth events, wonderful Sundays, Growth Conferences and entrepreneurial trips. Our passion for training becomes visible through useducation. Such as our Full-time School, the Growth Year, the School for (young) leaders and the Children’s Work Training. But also our online Growth courses and various books and publications.
