Engage Macedonia, is located in Gevgelia, Macedonia, and is led by Brian and Colleen Thomas, who have been serving in Eastern Europe since 1994. Engage Macedonia’s mission vision is to train students to reach the people of South Eastern Europe. Serbia and Montenegro are the least reached areas of Europe now and we are recruiting college age young people to help us plant churches around the various university campuses of nine cities in the area. The vision is to start coffee shops in the area near a college campus; share our faith with the students while offering them assistance with their English language. Students reaching students, near the campus, sharing coffee, life and Jesus. The dream is to see these shops become the core of a future church.
