SEND’s Ministry
Developing reproducing disciples is the key to establishing reproducing churches. SEND Croatia’s vision for developing disciples is based around a training center where discipleship is done through biblical curriculum, life in community, and missions. SEND Croatia also seeks to plant a healthy reproducing church in a strategic location as part of a multi-national team. A variety of methods include sports ministry, Christian camping, Bible teaching, leadership development, outdoor education, and creative engagement.
Spiritual Climate
The culture is shifting—while most Croatians still identify as Catholic, in actuality, they live a dichotomy of “God on one side and life on another.” Interest in church and God is declining. The majority of Croatians are pragmatic agnostics and a growing number would identify themselves as something other than Catholic—Agnostic, Muslim, Atheist, or other.
Team Goals
In the next five years, SEND Croatia will:
  • Partner with Scripture Union Croatia and other SEND areas to launch the discipleship training center.
  • Substantially increase the team in order to effectively train reproducing disciples.
  • Offer programs to local schools, churches, and communities that create opportunities to engage with biblical truth.
  • Explore creative new opportunities for outreach.
  • Fervently pray and work hard toward beginning one new church plant.
