2020 has been an intense and challenging year for the Evangelical Focus team. But from a journalistic point of view, it has been very fruitful.

The Covid-19 crisis exploded at the end of the first trimester and totally dominated the rest of the year. A look at our 216 news and analysis articles addressing the pandemic is an interesting exercise of seeing how we – just as everyone else – only gradually discovered the real impact of the crisis on society and church as the weeks went by.

Online work has been a main characteristic since we launched Evangelical Focus in 2015. This meant that we did not have to slow down the information coverage when the coronavirus started to spread across Europe.

Other current issues we followed closely this year include the struggle for freedom in Belarus, the accelerated technological changes, the new challenges in mission, and key socio-political shifts in other parts of the world.

A re-design of our website also happened this year.

The number of visits to Evangelical Focus exceeded those of 2019 (our best year), with a further increase of 24%. Definitive statistics of 2020 will be shared with our readers in January.

These are the most read articles of the year...
