Monetary support is extended to key indigenous Balkan Christian workers in our network of contacts throughout the Balkan Peninsula. Frequently, these contacts are our best means of fulfilling our other three purposes as well. American Outreach volunteers often team with indigenous workers in ministering to both adults and children. The focus extends also to the distribution of Bibles and the Jesus videos in the language of the people. In addition, daily devotionals, Christian tracts and literature, Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials are distributed throughout the year.
At times, especially during the summer, Outreach volunteers participate or take leadership roles in worship or other important worship functions. Normally, however, the primary purpose of The Macedonian Outreach is to undergird the native Christian workers in their ministry to their parishioners. This is accomplished by providing them with the wherewithal to reach their own people with the message of Christ’s saving grace.
