There Is Hope Ministries with Pastor Nenad

About the Ministry

There are only about 6,000 Bible-believing Christians in Croatia—and only 2,000 of them have strong doctrine. So many of the 4 million people that live there live today without hope.

But there IS hope to be found in the knowledge that Jesus Christ came to Earth to die for sinners and He rose again so that we may have new life. There Is Hope Ministries makes it their aim to reach their unbelieving friends, neighbors, and country with the hope that comes from believing in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. Many Croatians identify with the Catholic or Orthodox traditions, but don’t have a personal relationship with Christ.

There Is Hope Ministries uses several means to spread hope in their country—music and summer kids camps are the primary two. They also are in process of building a ministry center in a little town in the north, which will host a church, evangelistic concerts, a coffee shop, camps, and whatever else the Lord brings their way for His purposes.

Ministry Focuses

Meet the Pastor: Nenad


Pastor Nenad has been involved in strategic ministry to his country for decades. He comes from a legacy of faith in his family. His grandfather, Ilija (Elijah), began using music as a way to build relationships, share the Gospel, and begin a church in the then-communist Soviet Union. Now, Pastor Nenad leads that church and There Is Hope Ministries in Croatia.

Pastor Nenad has experience being apart of several large, international para-church organizations and doing sports ministry as a professional athlete. But today, he focuses his time and efforts on shepherding the faithful group of believers at his church, directing There Is Hope Ministries, and spending time with his family.

Pastor Nenad is married to his wife, Silvana, and they have two adult daughters.
