Three Rivers Baptist Association, and the churches which make up the Association, has voted to become the Virtual Strategy Coordinator for the Slovak people group in eastern Slovakia.  The year 2012 begins the 6th year of working through volunteer mission teams in order to establish and build relationships and plant churches. 

Cities of Slovakia are dominated by large apartment buildings which house hundreds even thousands of individuals. Often within these apartments are extended families sharing in the care of children and the elderly. Pray that good relationships will be established so that doors can be opened to home Bible studies, prayer groups, and house churches.

     Consider even now how you will be a part of this great and exciting effort in reaching “the ends of the earth.”

Check back here for projects and mission trips for 2012.  We will again be engaging local people in Conversational English as a way to share God's love with eastern Slovakia.  We also plan to help conduct a day camp for children and youth at one of the large apartment blocks in the city of Presov.

 The cost for each of these trips is $2500. An initial $200 deposit is due with your application. A payment of $1000 will be due 60 days prior to departure, and the final payment is due 4 weeks prior to departure.
