Berti Berhami – Country Director
Ilir Stavro – LeaderImpact Director
Year after year Albania proves to be one of the most spiritually fruitful countries in all of Europe. While most Albanians would claim to come from a Muslim background, 40 years of one of the world’s harshest communist oppression effectively wiped out religious awareness and so today many Albanians are open the gospel. With its ethnic background and proximity to the Muslim world Cru’s Albanian ministry is already sending Albanian missionaries into surrounding countries on both short and long-term assignments. Although by population Albania is relatively small in size, it has a huge vision and is actively ministering in numerous sectors of society throughout the country.
On the Ground:
In Albania the ministry to influential leaders is segmented into young professionals, educators and senior leaders in business and government. Each year numerous outreach events attract hundreds of participants, leading to dozens of personal appointments and currently close to 20 small groups where people can meet Jesus and grow in Him. Ilir and his LeaderImpact team are working under the motto: Impact a Leader, Change a Community, Impact a Nation.
