AboutFamilyWorld › Kosovo

Alliance workers entered Kosovo in the summer of 1999, immediately after the last war.

Since 2002 the C&MA has partnered with the Messiah Evangelical Fellowship with a vision to plant churches throughout Kosovo, Macedonia and beyond. In 2004 the C&MA joined with the Messiah Church to launch a new community center and church plant in a city of roughly 70,000 people with no known believers prior to 2002. In 2012 the partnership launched another church plant in the city of Kamenica where there were no known believers.
