A key passion of GCCM is to raise up local leaders to lead the spiritual and humanitarian ministries in the countries and communities that it establishes itself within. In Albania there is a mature leadership team developed among the young people of Durres Christian Centre. Here are some of the key people involved “on the ground” in Albania:
My name is Rudina Metani, I was born in the city of Durres, Albania. I have a bachelor degree in English Language and a Master of Science in Managing and Supervising Educational Institutions.
I am have been a member of Durres Christian Center since 1998, volunteered and ministered in the church wherever was need for help, from 2009 to 2013 I have lead the Children’s Ministry together with a team of girls from the church.
Since 2014 until now I am part of the Leadership of the church, and serve with the Worship Team. Throughout the years I have been able to see the great work God has done in us, through us and with us, being an instrument for His kingdom. I came to church first to learn English, and the church offered it for free to everyone who was interested. I want God to use me and become a channel so through my service many would come and know Him as Lord and Savior.
My name is Jeton Bajram from Durres, Albania.
With humility I may say that I am very blessed to cover the pastoral ministry of Durres Christian Church. I am serving full time as a Pastor in training. My heart beats hard for Albania and for a National Revival, my eyes are focused on Durres Christian Center.
This year for Durres Christian Center is the year of “Passion”. I as the pastor in training and the Leadership team of the church believe that God has spoken to us that our passion for Him stretches in every aspect of our lives.
God has made everyone unique and special. This encourages us as leaders of Durres Christian Center to position every member to fit in the right place where he/she may function well.
Alban became a Christian in 2000 as a young teenager and has been very faithful to the Lord. Since he was 15 years old he has worked to support his family and it was a big step to quit his job and attend Christian Leadership Training. He has now finished this 2 year course and is working fulltime in our foundation doing a variety of ministries. It is our goal that he will become a pastor on one of our church plants in the future. Alban is a young man who is very dedicated and hard working and we need people who will support him so he can do freely what God has called him to do..
We are excited that young people like this in our church are responding to the call of God to reach the unreached of our world, especially those who are Albanian. However because of the poverty of this nation, these young people and others like them are not able to provide their own resources for such a vision. Therefore we as a Church who have recognized the call of God on their lives would like to send them but as a Mission church we depend on the giving of others. If you would like to be a part of reaching the lost Albanians of this world, no matter what country they live in please pray for and support these young people through your giving.
My name is Ledjana Musa and I am part of the Leadership Team. I am in charge of Children Ministry for 4 years now.
I love kids. I love seeing and investing in the next generation. Working with the kids have learned me lots of new things. I knew God when I was 10 years old, and I believe that God can change and use children. My passion is seeing the next generation leading the church, being missionaries, being pastors and being used by God in a powerful way.
Hi! My name is Klevis Musa! I am 17 years old and I am in the last year of high school.
I started going to church since I was six years old. I started to attend children bible study. The reason why I started to go to church was to get a food bag. After some years I started to learn the guitar at the church. I really loved that instrument. After some years God gave me the privilege to serve at the worship team. After some years I became the assisten worship leader. God was preparing me for something bigger. Two years later I became the worship leader.
Now I am serving at the church as part of the worship team and the leadership team of the church. I also menage the social media of the church. It is always a pivilege to serve God and help people to get to know God. Thank you very much for your help! God bless you!
