  • Spiritual Climate:  Very few Evangelical Christians can be found in Montenegro and even fewer Pentecostals. While the majority will identify as Orthodox for most this is a cultural association and not necessarily one in which they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only a handful of Evangelical Churches exist, each of which are independent. No Assemblies of God churches exist in Montenegro nor any National Church denomination. Of these few Evangelical churches, nothing in the way of an organized discipleship ministry for next generation ministries exist (that could be found).
