Today I spent several hours at the founding meeting of to Kosovo Protestant Evangelical Church. For several years the national evangelical believers have attempted to come together and form a national church organization. All of these attempts have largely failed for one reason or another. Everyone here has felt a keen sense of failure to live up to the biblical ideals of unity. But today was different.
Today’s meeting was encouraging because after a couple of years of wrestling and significant attempts at reconciliation, we ratified statutes and by-laws for it new organization. Twenty-eight Evangelical churches and organizations gathered in Prishtina today.
We’re all hoping that a new day is dawning for the Protestant Community in Kosovo. Today was a major step in that direction. As far as I know, never before have as many evangelical, both national and international, come together with the same vision and hope for unified national church effort.
