Matt & Ellen Bjerk
Missionaries to Croatia
Matt’s father, Rob is a past elder and current teacher at Riverton Christian Church.
The Bjerks work with Croatian church leaders to help them more effectively reach their communities with the gospel. Their ministry involves discipleship, youth ministry (camps & VBS), advising church leaders in missions and outreach, home Bible studies, music, and personal evangelism.
Their current request is that we pray for wisdom as they research and plan future ministry, for the expansion of the camp ministry and opportunities to use the property as a training center for the Croatian church, for continued strong ministry partnerships, and for evangelism opportunities.
