Project Timothy

In Serbia, evangelical Christians represent less than 0.1% of the population and churches are often small, insular and divided. There is a great need for practical training and resources to equip church members and leaders.

Project Timothy meets this need by providing resources and training for Serbian churches. As well as training new church leaders for preaching, evangelism and discipleship, Project Timothy translates and publishes materials that will enable many more to be trained. Many of the new church plants that are being established are in isolated, lonely regions of Serbia where there are often no other evangelical Christians. Project Timothy helps these churches by providing tools, courses and training programmes. 

Project Timothy was set up by Crosslinks mission partners but it is now led by local Riste Micev. He is assisted by Matej Delac, who heads up the project’s translation work. Teodora Micev (Riste’s wife) also works for PT, helping Matej with the translation work and discipling women

Project Timothy's key activities are:

  • Preaching, evangelism and discipleship training for church leaders
  • Training up others who will be able to carry out expository preaching training 
  • Providing courses to train church members in home-group leadership and one-to-one ministry (Learn to Lean, 2 Ways 2 Live, Christianity Explored etc.)
  • Translating Christian books, resources and materials into Serbian
  • Organising Schools of Biblical Training
  • Building up a network of evangelical churches
  • Practically supporting church leaders in isolated regions of Serbia 

Due to the poor state of the Serbian economy, local financing of Project Timothy is not yet possible. Churches within Serbia are struggling to fund their own ministers and unable to give addition support to the work of Project Timothy.
