MISSION BALKANS is an initiative launched by Italian Ministries to spread a passion for God’s mission throughout the countries of the Balkan peninsula.
During 2016, over 200 pastors and Christian leaders from the nations of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Albania attended a strategic missions conference in Italy, Congresso Missione – M16. John Piper was the keynote speaker and addressed the theme of God’s Passion for Mission. At the congress, not only did the Balkan delegates enjoy a memorable experience, but they were able to connect among themselves and begin thinking through the theme of mission in the Balkans. A significant step was taken in developing the vision and initial funds were raised. Our next step is to reach further into the Balkans with a vision for mission and the provision of strategic gospel resources.
Below you can see the highlights of the M16 congress and listen to John Piper’s post-congress remarks. You can also learn more about current opportunities in which you can partner with this developing initiative in the Balkans.
Long-term, we are prayerfully seeking to identify ways in which Christians throughout the Balkans can be mobilized, trained and equipped for mission. As part of that we are seeking to understand how significantly and sensitively we can provide strategic and theologically sound resources to further the gospel mission.
