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

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28.19-20
Dear partners in the Gospel,
For one of the most recent modules at Baptist Theological School where I study, I attended a course on mission. We were told that countries with less than 0.02 % Christians are considered the least evangelised in the world. Since there are about 0.01% Christians in Serbia, it is clear that the field of evangelism is one of the most worth investing in. The number of trained pastors and leaders in churches is also very small, as a natural consequence of the small number of Christians. At Project Timothy, we are passionate not only about reaching out to the lost people of our country – but to do it first and foremost by training pastors, preachers and evangelists. We firmly believe that reformation starts at the pulpit.
