My Story

Hi friends! My name is Lizzy Novak and I am from Denver, Colorado. When I was a senior in high school, I felt the Lord call me to overseas ministry. Over the next couple of years, I became cofindent that the Lord was calling me to serve the Muslim community. As a senior in college, I began to look into working with Greater Europe Mission and learned about an exciting opportunity to do children's and youth ministry in Kosovo, a country I had never heard of. I decided to trust the Lord and take the next (and crazy) step by moving to Prishtina, Kosovo. Over the course of the next couple of years, Kosovo went from a country I knew nothing about to a place that would forever be tied to my heart. I have grown to love Kosovo and its people in a way that could only be from God and I could not be more excited to continue to serve the Lord there!

Where I Work

Living and serving in Kosovo is an amazing ministry opportunity. Two statistics can simply explain why I am so passionate about ministry there. First, 70% of Kosovars are under the age of 35. This means that Kosovo is an incredibly young country and it is the perfect place to invest in the next generation. Second, Kosovo is 96% Muslim. This means that Kosovo is filled with people who have never heard the Gospel. There is immense potential to share the Good News.
