Prague - Crossroads Center

The Vision -- Where What and Why?

The purpose and ministry of the Crossroads Center located in the capital city of the Czech Republic is to provide a place -- a "third space" including a lending library, where anyone (believers, seekers and observers) can come and access information and resources related to Christianity and the Bible. The library contains resources designed to encourage and enable users to investigate the validity of the Christian faith, to gain a greater understanding of biblical truth, and to develop and grow in their spiritual journey and personal saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Many people ask “Why establish a Christian library?” In a society where reading and education are so highly valued (the Czech Republic has a 99% literacy rate) the vision is one which is not only culturally relevant but also meets a real and practical need for Christian materials all the while providing tremendous opportunities for building relationships and sharing Christ. Many people will come to a library that might never enter the doors of a church building.

Approximately 60% of our current clientele are Czech and about 40% are from the international community. The library continues to be a venue for bringing together people for dialogue and discussion with individuals from different church backgrounds. We operate in governance independently from any particular religious or educational institution, but at the same time cooperate in partnership with and support of the local church.

Interested in being a part of what God is doing in Prague?

Ongoing expansion plans are focused on continuing to develop the ground floor space to include a full service cafe to be integrated with the library and increased meeting space affording many more opportunities for engagement. The space is designed to be used for community events (music and art), seminars, workshops, film nights and so much more as they seek to engage with those who might never darken the door of a church building but would come to a welcoming “third space."

Here are some specific ways to get involved ..

  • GIVE a special gift or become a regular partner
  • SHARE Czech-It-Out updates with those who might be interested
  • PRAY regularly for specific needs both personal and ministry
  • COME and SERVE as part of many wonderful short and long-term opportunities
