Our Global Journeys!

Kurt and I have always loved music, and we’ve always loved travel.

But we never expected to be part of an church with campuses all over the world, and we certainly never expected to hear God tell us to GO.

In the summer of 2015, Kurt had the opportunity to visit Lifegate Novi Sad (Serbia) and play a concert at the Lifegate Open Days festival. It was a life-transforming experience for him. Since then, we’ve spent 2 summers in Serbia as a family, and Kurt and I have taken a half-dozen other trips back and forth to the Balkans.

I’ve written extensively about each time we’ve gone – what led us to go, what we did when we got there, what God has spoken to us as a result. Here are a couple of highlights:

  1. Send Me!
  2. The Call and the Send
  3. Wagoners GO
  4. Wagoners GO 2018!
  5. Serbia Update, Summer 2019!
  6. Red Light/Green Light and What Comes Next
  7. We’ve Moved!

We have absolutely fallen in love with the people of the Balkans. The region as a whole has experienced immeasurable hardship over the past few decades, shifting from the Former Republic of Yugoslavia into individual nations. People have lost land, property, and lives, and the scars are still so evident today. Religion is at the heart of many, many issues, and our hope is to create opportunity to share the light of Truth that has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with a transformative, healing relationship with Jesus.

We have continued to listen to God’s voice, and He continues to open amazing doors right before our eyes. Kurt and I are convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that we (and our family) have a role to play in the Balkans. Every step of obedience looks different, and we are watching God write this story one chapter at a time.

If you feel so led, there are several ways YOU can get involved!

  1. As always, prayer and intercession is at the heart of all we do. Our desire is to remain lock-step with God’s will, and we hear best in community. We also know that spiritual warfare is real (Eph 6:12), and prayer and Scripture are invaluable tools in our day to day battles. Please consider joining us in prayer. I will post at least once per month with regular updates and prayer requests.
  2. We are also constantly welcoming monthly financial partners. Moving across the world is no small feat, and while the cost of living in Serbia is less than America, there are still plenty of needs to be met. We also want to be freely generous to our community, buying meals, offering scholarships to camps and retreats, and many other things. If you feel led to partner with us in finances, you can follow this link!
  3. We have a very active online community through facebook at Emily Wagoner and on Instagram at @wagonersgo. There you’ll receive more regular updates, as well as some musical treats. 🙂

Thank you so much for joining us! We’re looking forward to getting to know you!

We love you!

The Wagoner Family
