About Southeast Europe
Southeast Europe offers unique opportunities and challenges for mission.
Orthodox Christianity is in decline in this region and the arrival of people from different nations is providing a new context to reach the unreached. WEC aims to respond to these opportunities and challenges, and to mobilise East Europeans to reach the unreached on their own doorstep, as well as to go to new cultures and join our teams around the world.
WEC is currently working in Albania, Greece, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and elsewhere in the Balkans. Each team has been involved in outreach and church planting, as well as in community projects, for several years.
One team is running a free medical service and children's programmes as well as looking for more ways to reach their community. Another team has a ministry centre and is exploring their options in reaching out to more parts of the neighbouring community. Another small team has an established reconciliation ministry, and there are opportunities among refugees in partnership with established churches.
WEC is prayerfully planning and anticipating reaching out to more new locations. This includes church planting and discipling in more districts in cities and towns not yet reached.
