Jovica and Savka Bacvanski - Transform Europe Now

Partnership

Podgorica Pentecostal Church

If you wish to support the work of Jovica and Savka in any way, please get in touch with the TEN office.

Jovica and Savka Bacvanski moved from Novi Sad  in Serbia, to Montenegro and its capital city of Podgorica following a call from God. Jovica had not wanted to go there, but as he began to preach in Podgorica each weekend, his heart was captured and he knew that he and Savka and their two children Jovan and Aleksander had to go.

Jovica reported: “I faced opposition from the Orthodox Church. Not directly, but they do their best to paint a picture of us, that we are a dangerous sect, so neighbours tell children not to mix with us. Children were throwing stones at my children. If you are not Orthodox, you are an enemy of the country. By distributing humanitarian aid supplied by Transform Europe Now to the very people who were persecuting us, they began to realise our church was here to help. Those one-time enemies now come to the church and today there are about 60 regular attendees and children!”

Jovica also works with drug addicts, and regularly visits Berane, taking aid and the message of hope to hundreds of refugees. Jovica longs for people who will join him in the work to build the church in Montenegro.

Prayer Points

  • That people will come to realise that Christianity is not a dangerous sect, as many are told.

  • For Jovica, as he leads the church in a country with only 300 or so believers.

  • For God to bring froth fruit from the years of faithful witness and sharing of the good news of Jesus Christ.
