Hope for the Balkans Mission Network is all about equipping, empowering and training God’s people on the Balkans to win their generation for the Lord Jesus Christ.
We exist to BRING people to God,
to ESTABLISH them in the faith,
and to EQUIP them for ministry
by pouring ourselves into their lives,
and facilitating their REPRODUCTION
into multiple generations
Disciples of Christ.
Build Bridges – COLLABORATION
Bulgarian Church is still like a teenager. It wants to be independent but in the same time it still needs a parental support from the US. Hope for the Balkans aspires to become a bridge between the churches in US and the churches in Bulgaria for the expanding of the kingdom of God in this part of the world. We connect Churches, Individuals, Missions, and Para-church organizations in the US with the established Evangelical Churches in Bulgaria. Evangelicals in Bulgaria are less than 1% of the entire population. They minister in an unfriendly environment of close to 87% Orthodox and 12% Muslim and they are labeled by the local media as sects and cults. Therefore our ministry seeks to connect the body of Christ on the Balkans with the vibrant and mission minded churches in the West and particularly in the US.
Mobilize Churches – MISSION
We facilitate the local churches’ desire to penetrate their neighborhoods, cities, and regions with the love of Christ. We know the churches in Bulgaria and their potential to reach their communities with the Gospel. And our goal is to assist the churches in enhancing their development until they reach their full capacity in ministry. We do it by mobilizing Christians in Bulgaria and the US to serve together in the field of ministry on the Balkans.
Win the Next Generation – TRANSFORMATION
We serve and support the Church in Bulgaria and on the Balkans in their efforts to reach the next generation for Christ. We nurture them spiritually, and guide them as they continue the cycle of reaching and teaching others. We develop a National Discipleship and Church Planting Movements through which we encourage the churches and individuals to be actively involved in fulfilling the Great Commission in our generation.
We adopt our projects to the needs of the people in our mission field. In that sence we try to be field driven and to keep a panoramic vision instead of focusing on just one thing. Currently the focus of Hope for the Balkans is Mobilization for Missions and Expository Preaching.
