Durres Christian Centre Foundation is an initiative of Global Christian Centre Ministries, a Christian charitable organization based in Canada. The foundation is registered in Albania as a Religious/Humanitarian Foundation. It has a group of directors consisting of Missionaries and local Albanian believers who oversee all its activities. We believe that God wants us to minister to the whole man so we feel we have a good balance between our Christian and Humanitarian activities.
Global Christian Centre Ministries (GCCM) was formed to enable the missionary work being done in Albania to continue, and to form a support base and covering for those ministering there. Our mission is to communicate God’s love to the unchurched of our generation in a language they can understand through a growing network of healthy relationships.
