Dimitrios Athanasopoulos bears a burden for the people of Greece. A pastor in Athens, he’s constantly looking for new ways to preach the gospel. About seven years ago, he began partnering with In Touch to bring In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley to roughly 12 million people in Greece and beyond. In addition to spiritual care, Athanasopoulos attends to the physical needs of others. Because of the country’s economic crisis of 2010—the effects of which are still felt today—many residents have a hard time putting food on the table. As he meets those needs, Athanasopoulos finds an opening to share the gospel with those experiencing the tangible love of Christ.
