Ministry in Bulgaria
Formerly a communist country, when freedom came, many Bulgarians left their country, reducing their population from 9 million to the present over 7 million. Many challenges remain in the country as it had faced many regional wars and is located in a region that is very fractured and polarized. The need for having the true freedom in Christ is huge.

Children's Ministry in Bulgaria
Bible Clubs are a bridge for churches to reach out to families. When children’s lives are changed, parents become curious. Children’s Ministry Workers build trust with parents as they show love to their children and provide a healthy, structured program for them.
The church planters’ only limitation in reaching out to the thousands of children waiting to join the exciting Children's Clubs is the resources available.
The Children’s Club consists of a five day module, in which the church planters strive to develop relationships with the children. This includes the following features.
Many of the children continue to attend Sunday School classes offered by the church planters. Seeing the change in their children, many parents begin attending church services and accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
One child can change a family, a community and a nation.
