A conference organized for Serbia and countries across the region. A strategic opportunity to enjoy deep biblical teaching and refreshing fellowship together around the gospel of Jesus Christ. TGC Southeast Europe, in partnership with Balkan Theological Seminary and Project Timothy, is pleased to invite you to participate in this uplifting event.
Europe desperately needs Good News. Uncertainty and difficulties are everywhere. The real Good News, which changes everything, is “The Gospel of Christ – Solus Christus”. By faithful exposition of Scripture (from Colossians 1), a strong call – a Reformation call – will be sounded to the church across southeast Europe to rediscover and respond passionately to the only Good News.
