Moments with the Mitts


Doug and Lisa Mitts serve with Greater Europe Mission in Poland and Europe. Doug serves in GEM as the Leader for Spiritual Formation and the CityReach Initiative. Doug and Lisa have done a variety of things in ministry over the years, but they focus on advancing church planting and developing national leadership. They are parents of two wonderful children and they enjoy their family immensely. Doug and Lisa live in wonder and gratitude to God for His goodness.

Thank you for stopping by to see us! We have enjoyed serving in Europe since 1991. Lisa has served in Japan, China, Hungary, Romania, Albania, and now Poland. She has spent some time teaching in Ukraine as well. Doug has lived and ministered in Poland, Ukraine, Mexico, China and Haiti but not necessarily in that order. Many more European countries could be added to the list.

We married in the U.S. in 1994 and returned to Poland in 1995. Both of our children were born in Poland -- but no, they don’t have dual citizenship.   

Our passion in life is our Lord, who reached down and called us to Himself through other faithful servants who shared their faith in Jesus Christ with us. Ever since we have been in pursuit of Him and His designs for our lives. 

John 17:3 states, “And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom Thou has sent.” After 40 years of journeying with our Lord, we have experienced Him and His unfathomable goodness (Ps. 34:8).

We hope you know Him personally too. If not, we’d love to introduce Him to you!
