We build up disciples, found churches and further the Kingdom.
Josh Provow, together with his wife Lydia and their five kids, have lived in Bulgaria since July 1, 2015. For almost three years the Provow family lived in the city of Svishtov and served in Bulgarian Protestant Church New Life in Svishtov alongside pastor Tim Awtrey. In 2018 they moved to the city of Shumen
My favorite verse:
“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith” -Philippians 3:8-9

Bulgarian Protestant Church “New Life” has an active children’s church that is entirely free.
Every Sunday 30 minutes before the worship service you can lead your child or children to the Children’s Church room. If you like, you are welcome to stay yourself and listen to the interesting lessons presented by Lydia Provow. Our teacher makes sure that the kids have fun by learning something new about God’s Word through crafts, drawing, and songs.
Jesus says ““Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14). We believe that in this destructive world God’s Word along can give a child the clear guidelines of good and evil and can protect him or her from the wrong path that many young people choose.
For those who love board games, we offer a fun and enriching event.
Every week (once in English and once in Bulgarian) we get together and play the world-famous game “Catan”. After the game we stick around for a discussion, which seeks to connect themes from the board game with themes from the Bible.
The gathering normally lasts around two hours.
Where: around the table in the facilities of New Life Church
When: every week we get together at different times, as we try to work around the different work schedules of our participants
