Ministry to young people is crucial. The current generation differs greatly from their Communist-era parents. There are some excellent developments in this ministry area but more are needed. CCCI is active. IFES has established student groups in 10 cities, but needs prayer to reach more unbelieving students effectively.
Christian media ministries. Difficult conditions for evangelism in the 1990s invited a more creative and savvy approach. Bulgarias use of media for spreading the gospel is praiseworthy. From tracts to glossy magazines to Internet and television, it is estimated most Bulgarians are exposed to the gospel through mass media. The same media further serves the Church by keeping it informed of both domestic and international issues, with the Internet in particular increasing resource availability (sermons, music, articles, etc).
