Title: Slovenia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Slovenia has had a Protestant witness since the Reformation, but still has very few evangelical churches and needs church-planting teams. The very small evangelical population is divided by ethnic group. Pray for unity, and for an Evangelical Alliance to unite the churches. Most congregations lack a full-time pastor, and need outside financial assistance. Pray for Slovene believers to evangelize their country, to support their pastors, and even to send missionaries!
