Bosnia-Herzegovina is located in South East Europe.
We believe “church planting is primarily leader training.”
God has shown Himself faithful and we want to tell the world of His lovingkindness.
Vision Baptist Church
We are sent from Vision Baptist Church and through Vision Baptist Missions.
After spending the summer of his high school graduation working in North Africa, Micah knew that church planting would be in his future.
He continued to study church planting with an internship after completing his training at the Our Generation Training Center.
Micah married Kathryn, who had been involved in the Vision Baptist Church plant since the very first service. Together, they continued to serve at Vision Baptist Church by assisting their friends who were headed to the mission field, becoming Yoke Fellows, and working in the children’s ministry as well as the music ministry. Over the last two years Micah has also served as one of the deacons of the church.
Through all their desires, training, and experiences, God has been preparing them to start a church in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The Rastellis started deputation in the fall of 2015.
