Title: Slovakia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Slovakia has a strong Christian heritage, but the many Catholic, Lutheran, and Reformed Churches struggle with low attendance. Praise God for renewal movements, especially among Lutherans who focus on young people and small groups (Family Fellowships). Pray that the Holy Spirit would bring new life to the strong foundation of Christianity here.
