Slovenia, a Southern Slavic country with a population of just under 2 million people, was a part of the former Yugoslavia until the early 1990s.
Nearly half of Slovenians are classed as Catholics but many of them are secular and, as a whole, it is a very secular country. There are evangelical Lutherans, but they comprise around 1% of the population.
Through our work with WeG (The WeG is an official agency of the Austrian Lutheran Church (Evang. Kirche A.B. in Österreich)) in Austria, SON Network has developed relationships within the Slovenian Lutheran Church and has close ties with the newly elected Bishop Leon Novak. Together with the WeG, we see the possibility of working alongside the Slovenian Lutheran Church to build relationships by engaging and connecting people with God’s Word through Relational ministry, to come alongside the Spiritual Orphans of Slovenia to help them reclaim their identity in Christ and to be more mature kingdom-builders by helping bring the Gospel to those still living in the aftermath of over three-generations of imposed Soviet scientific atheism, and to walking with these Spiritual Orphans from their first encounter with God’s Word through a life transformed in Christ.View Opportunities
