Annual Youth Training Conference "Equipped for the Action”

# 2

Dear friends and supporters of the ministry,

We just finished a glorious conference for emerging young leaders!  The main theme was “Equipped For The Action”!

In perspective of the strong evangelistic opportunity we have in 2016 with the Jubilee, firm plans have been made to saturate Rome and the major cities of Italy with evangelistic teams in order to distribute the book Mercy, printed in 1 million copies, and proclaim the message of salvation in Jesus Christ!

Nesa and Goca Savic – May 2015


May 17 was a special day for the history of our church. On that day the church board was formed from two brothers. On Milos and Doca hands were laid for acting on the board of our church. Nebojsa has worked for seven months with a group of potential leaders and he chose two of them who are ready to serve and help in the leadership of the church. It was a great pleasure to see God at work and how He changed their lives. Our plan and vision was never to do all work by ourselves. The church is growing and we are glad that God gave us new, quality people to serve and lead the church along with us. What a happy day! Praise the Lord!

Hello from sunny Sicily, summer maybe has started. For sure the rain and cool nights makes feel we are still in March. Galatians 2:16, this verse speaks volumes about what we do, rather, what He does when we are available to Him. These last few months have been very busy with 'works' in helping people, churches, refugees with food, clothes and most of all the Word of God.

Hello everyone, we hope this will find you well and serving Our Lord. Please Be Encouraged, Joshua 1: 8-9.

We have seen and live in a world filled with turmoil and no hope unless WE share His Hope to the world. In the U.S.A we see all kinds of me first, riots, revolts, anger, hate towards others, the same is true here. Joshua needed ENCOURAGEMENT, and we need it too, it comes from His Word.

Family Savic - March Update 2015

Evangelical Church Banovo brdo, Belgrade, Serbia


For five months now Nebojsa has been working with four young guys that he carefully chose. Those are young people, full of potential for whom we believe that God has a special plan and that He will use in the future in a special way. The lessons we teach are helping them to grow and form a Christian character. Since the church is growing Nebojsa needs assistants and new leaders. New leaders are formed in such a process, through the teaching and mentoring. Pray for them, their names are Sova, Nemanja, Milos and Doca. God wants to continue His work on them.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6.  This is so true these days when we see that we are bombarded with all kinds of (things) stuff to keep us occupied; things of no relevance instead of things we should be occupied with.
