President of Montenegro Hopes to Break with Serbian Orthodox Church

In 2006, Montenegro had a referendum to separate from Serbia. In 2019, the government asked the Serbian Church for proof of ownership of assets predating Monetengro’s merger with Yugoslavia in 1918.

After being forced to reverse that decision, the President of Montenegro says he hopes that a break from the Serbian church can be possible through the Constitutional Court.

Montenegro is an Adriatic country with over 620,000 people. 72% of the country are affiliated with the Eastern Orthodox Church while almost 20% adhere to Islam. According to Operation World, there are less than 0.1% evangelicals in the country and very few, if any, Baptist church-planting missionaries there.

Who will take the gospel to Montenegro? Who will reach them for Christ?
