Slovenia (MNN) — Do you like Crossfit? Operation Mobilization (OM) is launching a Crossfit ministry to Slovenia this summer. If you like working out and sharing how God entered your life, you might want to take a closer look.
As described on OM’s website, “Crossfit Slovenia will use the sport of Crossfit as a platform to forge relationships within the gym. Because Slovenes are such relational people, training Crossfit workouts together will immediately give you a connection with them because you will be doing something that they love.”
For a couple of weeks in July, you’ll be able to train Slovenes in Crossfit and introduce them to Christ. Or, if they already know the Lord, your story might help them deepen their relationship with Him.
Crossfit Slovenia a unique ministry approach for a nation steeped in Protestant history but desperate for discipleship and evangelical growth.
According to Operation World, Protestants have had a presence in Slovenia ever since the Reformation. Although most Slovenes (60%) are Catholic, the Catholic churches in most cities are primarily there for cultural and societal reasons.
- Ask the Lord if He would have you serve Him in Slovenia through this opportunity.
- Pray for evangelical churches within Slovenia to begin reaching their neighbors with the Truth of salvation.
- Pray for creativity to find new ways to engage Slovenes with the Gospel.
