Croatia Out Reach Mission

Croatia Out Reach Mission

Nathanael and Elizabet Spicak have been evangelising in Koprivnica since 1992. At that time there was virtually no christian witness to the population of 24,000 people.

Nathanael became ordained as a baptist pastor in 2003 and has witnessed significant growth in church membership and people coming to faith.

Nathanael can be contacted by any of the following methods:

Over the summer months, Nathaniel has been busy with summer camps. Gareth Parker, a student from Belfast Bible College had his summer placement in Koprivnica. A team from Ballycraigy Congregational Church also went out. All were involved in youth ministry and outreach ministry.

The church has marked a ten year Sunday Service ministry. Many turned up for this special occasion - 112 people at the service. Nathanael was greatly encouraged as he heard people singing praises to God which challenged him and others to pray more and dream of the day when the church will be filled with people drawn to Christ.

Nathanael and Elizabet and their family are keeping well. Suzana is now started her second year at school. Nathan is at kindergarten and both he and Noah love music.

On 19th November, Nathanael arrives in Northern Ireland and will be with us at our mid week Fellowship on Wednesday 24th November (D.V.).

Plans have been made for him to preach at different churches while he is here. The A.G.M. will be held at The Haven, Templepatrick on Monday evening, 22nd November at 8.00pm. All are welcome to attend.

Nathanael values the love and friendship he receives from Tullylish.

Thank you again to everyone who supports Nathanael's ministry prayerfully or financially.

Below are extracts from a letter from Nathanael:

Dear Friends,

We trust that this letter will give you an update on our church planting ministry and will encourage you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

The church is growing and moving forward and we all enjoy the blessings we receive through the fellowship we have. We continue with Church Services, Bible Studies, Children's Ministry and Outreach Activities. Over these months we have seen new people coming to church. We are already preparing our summer activities. We know that All Saints, Tullylish is coming back. Last summer they worked, served and witnessed and left a great testimony and tremendous impact in church and town. We look forward to seeing them again.

May God bless you richly as you continue to support the ministry in Croatia .

Yours in Christ's Service,


Heather Hanna
