Brief Profile

The Serb diaspora emigrated from the nation of Serbia. The kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes came into existence in 1918, and its name was changed to Yugoslavia in 1929. Post World War II Yugoslavia was governed by the communists, and Serbia became a Federal unit of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

The 1990s saw the break-up of Yugoslavia, and a time of war, political turmoil, and conflict followed for the people of Serbia. In 2006, the people of Montenegro ended their union with Serbia, and Serbia once again became a separate nation.

The Serb diaspora are overwhelmingly linked to the Serbian Orthodox Church. In fact, their national and religious identity are closely linked to the Serbian Orthodox Church since the early 19th century. Over 85% of Serbs claim to be Orthodox Christian, while nearly 6% claim to be Catholic.

Prayer Points

  • The Serb diaspora need to be heard on the issues that have shaped their nation. There are strong feelings especially toward NATO nations who participated in the military intervention into the conflict between Serbia and Kosovo in the late 1990s. Many Serbian’s view this action as intrusive and illegal.
  • Pray for the Serbs as many experience difficulty finding their in terms of jobs and other ways.
  • Pray that evangelical Christians will form relationships with the Serb diaspora and then in turn share a gospel witness with them in both word and deed.
  • Pray for Christian leaders to emerge who will take the gospel to the Serb diaspora.
  • Pray for healing of emotional wounds brought on by the turmoil in their homeland.
  • Pray evangelical churches will organize a prayer strategy for the unreached Serb diaspora.
