In 1970 Pastor Wayman Mitchell went to the small town of Prescott, Arizona. From
here, a spiritual fire was launched that is spanning the globe. Since that time over
a two thousand threehundred churches have been planted with crusades and conferences touching
tens of thousands every year. These Churches are a product of that vision and is
working to see it expanded in the short time that remains before Jesus returns. God
has given us a vision for the day we live in. Our message is simple, yet it is the cor-
nerstone of all truth. Jesus Christ is the only hope for man's salvation. In a world full
of empty dreams and false promises, there is a truth which grows stronger every
day: Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world..
The open door in The Netherlands was in 1978 with a small biblestudy group in a small
city called "Steenwijk". the group consisted in about 30 people desired a pastor.
One of the disciples took the pastoral leadership with the help of pastor Mitchell, who
supported the Dutch church with finances, revivals, sending evangelists and pastors to preach for them,
and giving direction. Through the Prescott conferences the Dutch pastor received vision
and direction and this is how the Dutch Fellowship started. The church in Steenwijk
moved to Zwolle where they are now responsible for hosting their own conference
every 6 months. In this conference many different countries are represented.
"Evangelie Gemeente De Deur" has about 50 churches in The Netherlands and about
25 missionaries and local pastors in other countries like: South Africa, Peru, Curaçao,
Surinam, China, Slowakia, Turkey, Poland, Portugal, Aruba, Bonaire, St. Martin, Belgium
and Rwanda Africa.
