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.
‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.’
This is a verse that we need to hear every once in a while. Paul has already summarised a basic pattern for Christian life – suffering now, glory in the future (Romans 8.17). This is a pattern which proceeds from the mystery of Christ himself. In a world full of pain and uncertainty (particularly because of the pandemic), this verse is a hugely needed source of encouragement that we need to take with us into this new year. We need to know that God can work everything we go through for our own good.
Here are some of the events that we still managed to have despite the pandemic:
