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
Dear partners in the Gospel,
Having spent 30 days in self-isolation and another four days in a full lockdown, I am sending you another short update about us, Project TImothy and Serbia.
We as a family are thankfully ok. We’re still spending most of our time at home and only going out to buy groceries and take a short walk. We both work from home and this is working well for now. Ivona is thankfully ok with the situation - she manages to stay active and spends a lot of her and our energy. She sleeps well, which also helps us to rest well and be productive in our work.
It seems that these drastic measures are giving good results and that the number of infected people is decreasing. They are now loosening the measures, gradually and conditionally (we will still have to spend at least one more weekend in lockdown). We will see what happens and will keep you updated.
Receive future updates from this project by email.
