Ministry Description

World Gospel Mission partners with Planters Seed Foundation through children’s and youth outreaches in two Albanian villages. One location is a rural mountain village 90 minutes from the capital of Tirana. Due to its isolation, the village has remained unchanged for generations. Missionaries and national partners hold Bible clubs in the village every other week in addition to doing home visits and providing compassionate assistance to the community. In the other village, located about 30 minutes from Tirana, Bible clubs and youth groups meet weekly at a ministry center. English classes and fellowships for men and women also take place on a regular basis. When possible, special events are held at the center as outreach opportunities to the general community.

Quick Facts
  • Albania is the only predominately Muslim country in Europe. Approximately 70 percent of Albanians are Muslim, and less than 1 percent are evangelical Christian.
  • Under communism, all mosques and churches were closed and all religious observances were prohibited. Private religious practice was not allowed until 1991, and the first complete Albanian Bible was not printed until 1994.
  • Mother Teresa, who spent the majority of her life ministering to the poor and dying in Calcutta, India, was born an ethnic Albanian.
