General: Albania is set on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, with Montenegro and Serbia to the north, Macedonia to the east, and Greece to the south. A little larger than Maryland, Albania is composed of two major regions: a mountainous highland region (north, east, and south) making up 70% of the land area, and a western coastal lowland region that contains the most densely populated part of Albania.
Gospel Need: Largest religion is Islam
- Islam – 62.4%
- Christian – 30.4%
- Evangelical (those who believe in salvation by faith in Jesus) – 0.5%
- Other – 6.7%
Albania is in need of Gospel laborers. There are fewer long-term missionaries now than in the initial rush after the country opened; more committed workers are needed. For more information, click here.
