Illyrian Gospel Trust
We have for over 10 years supported the work of Will Niven working as a church planter and pastor in Albania.
Will’s work is supported through the IGT : The purpose of the trust is to promote the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the planting of indigenous Albanian churches and to be a resource of Christian work and co-operation in general amongst the Albanian peoples wherever they may be.
In particular, the Illyrian Gospel Trust is supporting the work of Will and Doreta Niven who are serving in the “Way of Peace” churches in Fier and Patos. These churches, initially founded by missionaries from the European Christian Mission, are in the process of growing. Our aim is not only to see an indigenous leadership established in each church but to see these churches planting new fellowships in their area and beyond.
