Family Team Albania Mission 2013

Document Actions


Families, couples, and individuals who have experience with children are invited to help lead a family retreat program in Albania. The focus is to offer a “family witness” while sharing the Orthodox faith and growing in Christ together.

Workshops, activities, and ministry outreach will be offered together with Albanian church leaders and their families. Sports, arts and music will also be part of this exciting mission trip. Participants will experience several ministries of the Orthodox Church of Albania and go on pilgrimages to some of Albania’s holiest sites.

This team is a collaboration of the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Center for Family Care. In 2011, a pioneer Family Mission Team was sent to Albania and humbly helped lay the foundation for family ministry of the Church of Albania. The 2013 Family Mission Team will work together with OCMC missionaries and Church leaders to continue building and strengthening this ministry.

All participants are called to be exemplary role models as they minister to other families, share their life experience, and offer a visible witness of the Orthodox faith. Strong family values, teaching experience, and training and/or experience in helping couples and families are needed. Families with children are encouraged to participate.

Dates: July 19 – August 1, 2013
