“Our prayers can go where we cannot. When we pray there are no borders, no prison walls, and no closed doors.”

Anne van der Bijl


We are an NGO and consist of a small and flexible board directly connected to the mission field where many refugees are located. We work on voluntary basis for Solid Ground Missions. In the mission field we have direct contacts with e.g. Arabic-, English-, and Farsi speaking evangelists and translators.

This page was updated on the 18th of January 2022. The change that has been made concerns an internal change in Solid Ground Missions. The organization is initiated by Gert Jan, Paul, and Arend. Later it was expanded with the three other members. With lots of energy, good expectations, and good intentions, we have tried to set up an organization that serves in the Kingdom of our Lord amongst the refugees in Greece. Sadly, it appeared we have not been able to unite our visions, which resulted in the leaving of Arend. He will continue his path without Solid Ground Missions. Our organization will now focus on supporting David and Joanne (his wife) and the work they currently do in Greece. We will post updates about their plans for the future on this website later on. 

Statement of Faith

We find it important to be clear about our identity towards people who support us and to them we try to reach with the Gospel. The foundation of Solid Ground Missions is the Word of God, the Bible. The death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ has the central place in our identity. We wish to connect with people who want to follow Jesus in His Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). If this is a matter of the heart, we hope to recognize you in the following statement of faith:
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and He will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic (universal) Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

We believe that the Old and New Testaments are the infallible Word of God; inerrant as originally given, inspired by the Holy Ghost, and a complete and sufficient revelation of His will for salvation and a holy life.

We believe in the Great Mandate; to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. Amen.
