Leaders in North Macedonia need our support.
Throughout the world, God is calling leaders to grow in their faith and influence. The nation of North Macedonia, located in Southeastern Europe, North of Greece, is one of the most impoverished nations in the world--yet God is mobilizing individuals in the church and the marketplace in the name of leadership impact.
Omaha Leaders is committed to raising financial support to bring the GLS to the leaders of North Macedonia. Your contributions allow us to fund 4 key efforts in North Macedonia:
The Global Leadership Summit in Skopje, Macedonia
Mini Global Leadership Summits in 3 cities
Every dollar counts--would you partner with Omaha Leaders to support leadership development in North Macedonia?
We want to extend our reach beyond the walls of our city and impact our world. God is at work in North Macedonia!
Who is North Macedonia?
A country in Southeast Europe, North Macedonia gained its independence in 1991 as one of the successor states of Yugoslavia and recently added "North" to its name after a dispute with the nation of Greece in 2019. The country is home to just over 2 million people; around 1 in every 3 live in the capital city of Skopje.
Life in North Macedonia
The United States Agency for International Development has underwritten a project called Macedonia Connects. The project has made North Macedonia the first all-broadband wireless country in the world!
Eastern Orthodox Christianity (the Orthodox Catholic Church) is the most widely represented faith in North Macedonia. Around 65% of the population are affiliated with this denomination. Islam is also widely practiced.
Mother Theresa was born in Skopje, North Macedonia. The nation was also home to Alexander the Great.
Today, the leadership training opportunities for leaders are few. As a result, many leaders are ill-equipped to lead.
The official language of North Macedonia is Macedonian. Albanian is also recognized.
In 2018, the poverty rate in North Macedonia was 21.9% of the population. This means that over 450,000 Macedonian people live in poverty.
Unemployment rates averaged 29.8% in North Macedonia from 1993 - 2020, but dropped to a record low of 16.2% in early 2020.
"The mainstream leadership culture in North Macedonia is a blueprint on how to rob a nation from any hope for a better future, drive the best of the next generation out, and undermine any capacity for flourishing and common good. The Macedonian Global Leadership Summit is a Christian leadership confrontation with this stubborn reality, and this is my personal partnership invitation for you, for your team, for your church, for your organization, your company:
Come over to Macedonia with your skills and expertise. Come over with your prayers and intercession. Come over by making a financial investment into this new and exciting Macedonian leadership revolution!
Come over to Macedonia in any possible way--join the team, become a partner--and help our leaders rise up!"
