Santa Sorlie

SantaA member of OM and in January 2018 began a new ministry with OM Montenegro.

This tiny Balkan nation with an Adriatic coastline has a small number of evangelical believers in a handful of churches. Two-thirds of Montenegrins have an Eastern Orthodox identity; the remainder are mostly Muslim or Catholic. Few people practise their faith, however cultural identities are very strongly held, and in common with other Balkan societies, superstition dominates the thinking of many people.

Against this background, our vision is “to recognise needs – to act – to win and to excite people for Jesus Christ”. We want to introduce our Montenegrin friends to the living Jesus who can transform their hearts and lives, and to serve them in His name at their point of need.

Santa’s first task is to settle in and learn the Montenegrin language. Eventually she plans to serve the marginalised Roma women with a craft and sewing project.
