In the beginning of 2019, the Lord gave us a burden for the Balkan region and connected us with ministry partners in Serbia who share the same vision and passion for evangelizing their region, reviving the influence of the local churches and reaching the under-reached or previously unreached minorities.
Through this partnership we have expanded our outreach into Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and soon Kosovo. Serbia, however, remains the central and key location of our Balkan ministry.
July 5-15 we will return to Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia. We will also minister in its suburbs and the nearby towns and villages. We will partner with the largest evangelical church in Serbia in evangelism, youth outreaches, ministry to the homeless, ministry to people with addictions and reaching the Roma (gypsy) communities, who are separated from the society by their unique culture and lifestyle.
Economic hardships and political instability, the emotional wounds of the civil war, massive problems with drug use and many other factors make Serbia a very important mission field.
The purpose of our mission in Serbia is two-fold – to reach the lost and to strengthen the church. We will utilize medical missions, Bible and food distribution, intercessory prayer walks, street evangelism, worship, drama and other creative ways to communicate the Gospel message inside and outside the church.
If you are gifted in any of these areas of ministry, if you are a medical professional, if you have a heart for the homeless and marginalized communities, if you love to work with the youth – we need your gifts and talents on this team!
Novi Sad lies on the banks of Danube River. Its beautiful Old City and the historic Petrovaradin Fortress, as well as many historic sites around the city will take you back into history as far as the Roman Empire.
We are excited to take the Good news to the Balkans this summer and look forward to having you as a part of this mission.
