The Evangelical Church in North Macedonia has established the first network of evangelical churches and continues to plant and grow churches in the country.
From a parent church in the capital city of Skopje, a network of over 35 churches and humanitarian projects extends throughout North Macedonia. North Macedonia is one of the poorest countries in Europe, both financially and spiritually. The historic Orthodox culture and growing Islam influence from Albania is becoming an increasing challenge for the church. Our ministry partner, the Evangelical Church in North Macedonia, is crossing ancient cultural boundaries, fighting perceptions, and tackling discrimination, to plant local churches across the whole country.
Outreach events are a key part of the church’s annual programme, and each church offers mid-week meetings as well as Sunday services, where individuals have an opportunity to study and grow in their understanding of the Bible. The ministry has also set up North Macedonia’s first evangelical Bible school, where local Christians can be trained from their home congregations.
