Slovakia attracts tourists to its culturally diverse cities and the beautiful High Tatra Mountains. However, Christian believers remain a minority.
Slovakia – an often-forgotten land – split from the Czech Republic after the “Velvet Revolution” which saw Czechoslovakia throw off Communism. The beautiful country of Slovakia surrounds the Tatra mountains and has developed more slowly than the neighboring Czech Republic. The Slovak people are mostly nominal Catholic.
Under the guidance of the OM team in Hungary, a small team – consisting of just one British man – moved back into Slovakia in 2001 to restart ministry amongst the Slovaks. In late 2003, a Slovak/Hungarian family joined the team, and are working with a local Baptist church to start a church plant amongst the Slovaks and Hungarian-speaking population. The OM team in Slovakia is also involved in numerous ministries to the Slovak people, both in terms of children’s and youth ministries, as well as distributing tracts.
