Agapè Netherlands started in 1969 in a time of change for the Dutch Christian church. It was a time where the secularisation grew fast. Jan and Nellie Kits were called to start a ministry using methods unlike all others known by the Dutch church at that time – personal testimonies, simple sharing of the gospel and emphasising the ministry of the Holy Spirit. And though the variety of ministries have multiplied over the years, this personal ministry is still key in the Netherlands.
