Missionaries Marin & Atena Bloj

Marin began New Generation Church in 2001 with the vision of winning this generation for Christ and transforming it into a Holy Spirit-filled new generation that will take the message of the Gospel into their communities and the world. Since that time, they have been in a continual state of growth and expansion, moving into their new sanctuary in October of 2011; in time to celebrate 10 years of ministry.

They strategically disciple new believers and Marin and Atena pour their lives into training leaders who, in turn, raise up other leaders.

New Generation Church reaches out to the lost through their coffeehouse ministry, summer festivals, church planting program, Alpha courses, summer camps and many other evangelistic endeavors.

They are currently sending evangelistic teams into four locations that are their target cities for planting New Generation Churches. While their focus has been university students, they are now successfully reaching many in their parents’ generation.
