OUR COMMUNITY

Albania has been in several big transitions in the last hundred years or so, emerging from 500 years under the Ottoman Empire to become a monarchy, a brutal atheistic communist dictatorship, and more recently a democracy.  The modern-day church in Albania began in 1991 when the first missionaries were able to enter the country after the fall of communism.  Albania is currently the fourth poorest country in Europe, and the dream of the majority of people in Albania is to leave the country to seek a better life in Europe or elsewhere.

We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is living hope for all of humanity, and it not only has the power to save our souls, but to sanctify us and bring transformation to the community where we'll be in Tirana.  One-third of the population of Albania lives in the capital city of Tirana, which is perceived as a place of the fulfilment of dreams for many Albanians who desired to leave their small towns and villages for life in the big city.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the true fulfilment of dreams for every individual, family, and community.  

OUR WORK
We will be relocating to Tirana at the end of 2019.  Gezim has been out of Albania for seven years, and when he goes back, this will be a time of re-learning and seeing how God is at work through the believers and churches in Tirana.  Our desire is to partner together with believers and churches in the city to do holistic work, in which we see lost reached for Christ, disciples made, the poor and marginalized cared for and empowered, and communities transformed.  We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can do all of those things and more, and we want to be part of God's work in Albania for His glory.  Some of the first steps for us in seeking Gospel transformation will be: discerning God's leading to a community in Tirana, building partnerships/healthy relationships with individuals and churches, seeing God's work in the city, and assessing the needs in the community God leads us to.
