General Information:

CIA World Factbook—Kosovo

Currently, the team is involved in business development, health-occupational therapy, mental health counseling, evangelism, teaching EFL, and more.

Work and Living Environment:

Kosovo is a country of 1.8 million people, rich in history, with a number of interesting sites and activities to enjoy. Albanians are welcoming and easy to develop relationships with; crime is quite low.

Status of Christian Witness:

Kosovo is not a creative-access country and maintains freedom of religion. However, the nation’s majority religion has become increasingly radicalized. With a small population of evangelical Christians, sensitivity in public communications, including social media, is a must.  Members of the majority religion hold firmly to their traditions quite, but most are religiously secular and open to discussing faith issues.

Language Expectations:

Albanian is the national language. One year of formal language learning in Albanian is required with an additional year as needed.

Health Considerations:

Some local, private, pay-for-service clinics offer quality basic and emergency care. Private hospitals/clinics in the capital city, Pristina, provide quality care in nearly all specialties. Smoke allergies—a large percentage of Kosovars heat their homes with wood stoves. Additionally, though technically banned, smoking is allowed in most restaurants and coffee bars.

Expectations for Spouse:

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s giftings, training, and abilities, as well as the needs of the team. It is expected that both spouses will be meaningfully involved in meeting ministry objectives, depending on the nature of family roles, children, etc.

Children’s Educational Plan and Options:

Educational options in Kosovo consist of: (1) local Albanian public schools—generally inadequate for proper learning, (2) homeschooling, (3) Black Forest Academy (Germany) for high-school-age children.

Compensation Package:

The successful applicant(s) will receive a full compensation package with the expectation that once appointed, efforts will be made to raise a portion of support costs through friends and family, the sending church, or other resources. Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and coaching in fundraising is available.

Important Clarification:

Applicants should be aware that serving in the international world often requires a higher degree of grace and flexibility. For example, overseas teams can be suddenly and unexpectedly impacted by illness, government decisions, financial realities, team changes, or other factors beyond the team’s control. The challenge for applicants is that these factors can sometimes necessitate the sudden redefining of a position, which may take place before, during, or after the application/interview process has begun or is completed.
