Reaching the Community in Sofia…
At our core, we are church planters. Our desire - our call - is to see churches multiply in Bulgaria and to see God's Kingdom come on this earth. At the heart of church planting is reaching out to the communities God has placed us in - being Jesus' hands and feet as we seek to reach a broken people (because we ourselves are broken) with the Gospel of Christ. Below are the ways that God is currently using us to reach the lost and build His church in Sofia; the final frame is the Community of Faith that is being developed in Sofia. It is last not because it is least, but because it is a culmination...it is what everything leads to.

Sofia (the capital) is a city with a rich history reaching back hundreds of years before Rome. It's built on the site an ancient Bulgar city, later called Serdika by the Romans. It was revered by emperor Constantine for the power of its mineral springs. Now Sofia is the bustling capital of one of the EU's newest and poorest members. It's a city of contrasts: ancient and modern, beautiful and utilitarian, progressive and filled with traditions. And visitors find in Sofia's residents this same contrast: blunt and hospitable, warm with friends and cautious with outsiders, cynical and hopeful. In this city of faces we find a craving for real connection and deep friendships. This is where we start.
