Glastra, Matthias and Marlisa

Matthias and Marlisa Glastra live in the Netherlands with their daughter and son, whom they homeschool. They have served as leaders in FIRE Church in the Netherlands and FIRE School of Ministry Europe for over ten years. Matthias and

Marlisa are now working together alongside other FI families in the Netherlands, the Deelstra’s and the Joustra’s. As a team they planted King’s Church in August 2022. Matthias serves as an elder and board member. Both their administrative skills are being put to use in all sorts of ways to serve the church and be a blessing.

The church meets regularly for worship, prayer and intercession, pursuing Gods presence and interceding for the Rotterdam area as well as the Netherlands. They long to see Gods glory increase in their local church as well as in the area they are planted and in the nation. There is a great need for God to move powerfully in a country that is far from God, in which many people have left the faith, where there is a lot of confusion and deception. People need to know the truth, experience Gods love and Gods design for family.

Matthias and Marlisa have a longing to see the body of Christ come to its full potential, walking in freedom and fulfilling Gods plans and purposes through their lives. Currently they are being trained with Restoring the Foundations Ministry in order to help the body of Christ walk and live in the freedom Jesus Christ has purposed them to live in, through freedom from generational sins and curses, replacing ungodly beliefs for Gods truth, to provide healing from hurt and by bringing freedom from demonic oppression.

There are lots of opportunities to serve in the Rotterdam area; to the children, the elderly, the poor and broken. And they have a heart to see that grow and expand in the future, bringing the love and truth of Jesus to the area, changing lives and bringing restoration.
