The SEND Slovenia team is committed to planting churches where none exist. Missionaries are working to plant a church in Ptuj, the oldest town in Slovenia. Through personal contacts, regular kids clubs and Bible studies, as well as sharing daily life, they reach out in the community to make Jesus known.
Slovenia is spiritually desolate. Most Slovenes (58%) say they are Catholic, but participation is declining and few know Christ personally. Slovenia has a high rate of depression and many people turn to pills or suicide for help. Most towns have no gospel witness to tell them Christ is the answer. The SEND team is seeking ways to connect to local Slovenes and communicate the gospel.
