In Serbia, evangelical Christians represent less than 0.1% of the population. Churches are often small, insular and divided and so there is a great need for practical training to equip leaders.
Project Timothy was set up by Crosslinks mission partners but it is now led by local Riste Micev. Project Timothy's main work involves training church leaders for preaching, evangelism and discipleship. They also provide courses to train church members in home-group leadership and one-to-one ministry, and translate Christian books and resources into Serbian.
Dear Partners in the Gospel,
We want to encourage you with this letter and look forward to your prayers. Please let us know how we can be praying for you, so you can look forward to the same!
There were a total of 19 of us, including the trainers. We had the opportunity to teach from 2 Timothy. It was a great reminder for us to continue our gospel ministry even when it is very difficult and we face opposition. We have also slowly seen how our attendees learn the principles of hermeneutics and how they understand the importance of faithfully preaching the word of God. In every group, we have those who understand and see the things they need to change in their preaching. With some (who are perhaps a little older), progress is more slow. But this teaches us to be more patient and humble and more simple about teaching them. It is also a blessing and helps us to get better at what we do. Together, we can say that it was a great blessing to go through this wonderful pastoral message. Here are some photos.
