One of the challenges in promoting the Gospel in the former Yugoslavia is cultural resistance based on ignorance of the Gospel. The Balkan Institute for Faith and Culture arranges for Christian symposia in which government, business, and university leaders are exposed to the testimonies of Christian believers who are acknowledged experts in their respective fields. Some of these leaders have become Christians, and all have interacted with evangelical Christians from a different perspective thereafter.
The Institute for Faith and Culture demonstrates to participants that Biblical Christianity is not only relevant for today, it is essential to a healthy society. Staunton Grace has been partners with this ministry for many years.
