Missionary of the Month
Filed in: Missionary of the Month
The evangelical church in Croatia, with fifty congregations in forty-one communities, has emerged from the Balkan wars of the 1990s as the largest evangelical movement in newly independent Croatia. The focus of their ministry is planting churches in communities with no Gospel witness, but the churches also sponsor camps for all ages which both evangelize and provide training and encouragement for believers. A new initiative is a retirement home for aging pastors and wives.
Even though Croatia is perhaps the best-evangelized of all the parts of the former Yugoslavia, Croatians remain an unreached people group, with less than 0.1% of them being evangelical Christians. Church planters typically live by faith with no guarantee of support in a country with over 30% unemployment.
