There is a need for the church to be focused on the expansion of the Kingdom.
The need for the individual to focus on bringing glory to God by bringing others to Christ. Often, we grow in our own faith as we share our faith with others.
“In the mid-nineties there were very few Christian materials in the Albanian language, making discipleship and studies difficult. In fact, the Bible wasn't translated in its full until 1995. It was at this time that Shiqjeta Publishing was born and now has over fifty titles to its name. The latest project was "The Screw Tape Letters" by C.S. Lewis and the next title will be "How You Can Be Sure You Will Spend Eternity With God" by Erwin W. Lutzer. All recent translations have been done by Sergej Meçe.”Sergej MeçeTeam Leader
Coffee Shop Garden Villa
“A young couple came to Albania on their honeymoon. While here, God gave them the vision to build a coffee shop and boutique hotel to provide jobs to the congregation and fund the many ministries of the Pogradec church. The coffee shop opened in 2019 and the hotel was completed in 2020. Business is good and members of the congregation earn their livelihood.”Ryan and Kayla McDonaldProject Managers
Coffee Shop Le Chateau
“A church planting project began in the fall of 2017 in the nation's capital, Tirana. The space that was purchased for church gatherings, Bible studies, and ministries had potential for even more. After the success of Garden Villa Cafe in Pogradec, the vision for Le Chateau began; a board game coffee shop that supports other ministries and employs members of the church. After planning, fundraising, and building the grand opening was March 2021.”Mesina VitollariProject Manager
