16Nine represents a European family of regional teams working together in partnership across the different parts of Europe that God has placed us in.
As part of a wider family, each regional team expresses the same core values with respect to training principles and DNA. These core values are worked out within the unique regional context, leading to new innovations and training initiatives in each region.
There are currently five regional teams within the 16Nine family:
Kx is a network of churches and leaders across England and Wales who have committed to travel together on a journey of mission and discipleship. Kx has a vision for transforming the nation through a movement of missionary disciples and has evolved over the last four or five years from churches that have been through the training processes with 3DM. They dream of a nation alive with missionary endeavour, where new and existing churches are growing missional communities which are incubating a new generation of disciple-makers. Kx is led by Nic Harding and his team.
Nederland Zoekt works across the Netherlands to empower local churches to live out and make relevant the message of Jesus Christ. They have a vision to see this take place through Missional Communities impacting local regions and across every sphere of society. They work across denominations and have established a national network for training and equipping churches and organisations. Rudolf Setz is the founder and Director of Nederland Zoekt. Get in touch to hear more about what Rudolf and the team are planning in the Netherlands.
Cairn is a new initiative to see Centres of Mission established across the Celtic lands – making disciples of Jesus, restoring communities and transforming society. This is currently happening through Learning Communities, Coaching and Leadership Training. Karl and Niki are founders and senior leaders of Cairn. They have led Central, a church in the City of Edinburgh for 10 years. They are passionate about equipping, encouraging and releasing individuals in leadership.
DACH (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) is a network led by Stephan Käser and Roger Keller that trains and equips churches across the region to take hold of missional discipleship, raise leaders and plant new churches.
They have both Learning Communities and Communities of Practice running with churches from different denominations, as well as a European church planting organisation, who are on this journey with them.
KPN represents a network of churches in Denmark, joined together to equip and train in discipleship and mission. KPN’s churches have a vision to see a movement of missional communities and church-planting. They are inviting other churches across Scandinavia on the same adventure. As well as Learning Communities and training for Church Planting, they also lead GRO, an annual gathering that invites leaders to come and experience the DNA of discipling culture and what it could look like to become a sending church.
