Information for Churches

Begin by cultivating a loving heart, a listening ear, and the habit of prayer. Look for opportunities to learn about other cultures and develop skills for cross-cultural communication. There are lots of resources on this site, including the article "How to Start a Cross-Cultural Ministry," that can help you prepare to move forward in faith.
The Jesus Film is a great way to share the gospel in the "heart language" of your Bulgarian neighbors. Campus Crusade for Christ has produced this beautiful film of the gospel of Luke and translated it into over 600 languages, including Bulgarian. Your church can buy a video for less than $20 and sponsor a "Bulgarian Night" to show the film and begin a dialogue. Ask Bulgarian leaders in the community if they would like to see the film and if they'll help you invite other families.
