A New Church in a Land of Old Ones

Croatia is a land full of churches. They're towering high in the city squares. Their ornate architecture and stained glass windows have been preserved through the ages. They're Catholic. Or Orthodox. They're old. They're traditional. They're mostly empty. And they're, sadly, usually Spiritually dead inside.

But there is a small remnant in Croatia of faithful worshipers of Jesus relying on grace to be saved. In a country of 4 million people, only about 6,000 of them fit this category. And a big chunk of the 6,000 worship at a specific church in a small Croatia town. This church is not dead; this church is alive with joy. This church is overflowing so much that they had to build another building. This church is breaking the boundaries in evangelism and fellowship. This church's building is brand new. And it's almost done.

This body of believers was able to hold their first worship service in their new space this Fall. On Easter Sunday 2020, they're opening for good and blazing new trail as they work to reach their neighbors and their country with the hope of Christ. This church building will not only be used on Sunday mornings, but every day of the week, for coffee shop discipling space, evangelistic concerts, camps, and more.

In a country where old churches prevail, this new church we pray will be a shining light for the hope that comes from placing your faith in Jesus for salvation.


There Is Hope Ministries uses several means to spread hope in Croatia—music and summer kids camps are the primary two.
