Greetings from Greece! My name is Nick Antonakos. I'm a Biomedicine University graduate and also studied theology in a Greek Bible College. Serving Him and promoting the work of the Gospel in Greece is an honor and a blessing for me. I would love to present to you His work, specifically in the region of Athens.
Two things I focus are meeting people's needs and promoting the Gospel. Greece is the doorway to the west and is also a place where cultures meet and, in many cases, coexist. I've been serving refugees from the Middle East mainly by, but not exclusively, meeting their needs for food and basic medical needs. What I've witnessed is that the need for medical care is very prominent and in many cases crucial. My vision is for an Athens Medcare Center that will be open weekly for those in need, Greeks included. Cooperating with churches in Athens and serving our brethren needs is also a main focus for me so that the place will work as a focal point for everyone in Athens that's in need. A ministry with an ultimate goal to serve the people of Athens and I am praying that God will open the hearts of His people for this place to start in the heart of Athens.
I'm also coordinating fellowships in the area of Athens with the assistance of a group of brethren that make it sustainable and ready to respond to people's spiritual needs and thirst for the Gospel. Having also a place of responsibility by leading sermons and communion time in the local church helps to connect people and groups and work as a focal point too.
A long time ago His great apostle, Paul, came to Greece and changed the country's future forever. As we continue Paul's work, we always remember that as His church continues to write its story across the land of Athens, the present and the future of Greece journeys with His Word. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart" -Apostle Paul
