Help Get Christian Mission Center On the Map
We Need Your Help to Purchase CMC's Building
Since 2009 the believers at Christian Mission Center (CMC) have been serving the Lord in Vidin. We began our services in an uninhabitable building in the center of the city. After pouring in roughly $10,000 to repair and modernize the structure, we vigorously held weekly Bible study meetings and church services, offered low-cost lessons to youth in English, writing, music and the arts; as well as served as a missionary hub for short-term mission groups to serve the people of this area - which is in fact the poorest region in the European Union. In 2014 we decided to move to a new location after our landlord raised our rent beyond what we, as a nonprofit, could afford. Once again we repaired, painted and set up a new dwelling to serve the Lord and the people of Vidin. Three years later, in 2017, the bank foreclosed on our landlord's defaulted mortgage. And so we searched, yet again, for a new property to rent and repair in order to continue our work.
Total to Raise - $30,000 Raised - $10,700
We now have the opportunity to buy this building - which means no more moving and renovating! Please help us purchase this building so that we can establish our local church in Vidin and our mission work in the nation of Bulgaria.
We need to raise $30,000 by May 1, 2019. All gifts are much appreciated.
Thank you for your giving!

Our Mission at Christian Mission Center - Vidin
Christian Mission Center works to serve the community of Vidin and the nation of Bulgaria in three ways:
- Through the local church: Our church body holds weekly worship services, as well as prayer meetings. We believe in sharing the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ with the lost and strengthening the body of believers through our weekly sermons and worship services, which can also be found on our YouTube channel.
- As a missions hub: In order to better serve those who are hungry for the Truth, we publish a weekly bulletin filled with important news events for the believer in Christ, as well as an excerpt from the weekly sermon. We publish Christian literature, both fiction and nonfiction. We host mission groups and help them to serve the community through sharing the gospel with the widow and the orphan, cleaning and repairing areas of town, and helping those who are in need of help: the sick, the disabled, and the abandoned.
- As an advocacy group: Our advocates train both lawyers and those interested in human rights in the areas of freedom of religion and Christian witness in the public square. They do this through holding meetings, training events, publishing, establishing a media presence and defending the Christian cause before the Bulgarian Parliament and in the courts of law in Bulgaria, as well as in the European Union.
