Croatia Church Plant Celebrates One Year


This past month Church of God’s Grace in Croatia celebrated one year together since their launch, and what a celebration it was! (See video below)

Mario & Jen Vucenovic were first sent out from their home church, Christ Community Church of Reading, Pennsylvania in 2016. Mario is passionate about sharing the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching the Word of God. His desire is for his people to know the hope, joy, and peace we have in Christ, what he himself simply never knew as a young boy growing up in Croatia. 

To that end Mario planted Church of God’s Grace in Zapresic, Croatia, and began holding regular services in January of 2018, with just six adults and eight children. In what is such a difficult country for gospel mission, God has been so good to them, has blessed them in so many ways, and continues to establish the fruit of their hands by His grace.

For the first few years Mario & Jen were sent out with grants from their home church and from Sovereign Grace Churches, but they will now be transitioning to more traditional missionary fundraising efforts to ensure that their mission is funded into the future.

What a privilege it is to partner together in this way as Sovereign Grace Churches.
