Brief Profile

The Bulgar diaspora people in Europe are predominantly native to the country of Bulgaria and neighboring regions.

Famous for its rich salads required at every meal, Bulgarian cuisine is also noted for the diversity and quality of dairy products. Bulgarian cuisine features also a variety of hot and cold soups, an example of a cold soup being tarator.

Initial greetings are formal and reserved. Greetings consist of a firm handshake, direct eye contact and the appropriate greeting for the time of day. Address people with their titles. Only friends and family address each other with first names and possibly a hug or kiss.

The majority of the Bulgar people are nominally members of the Bulgarian Christian Orthodox Church. The Bulgarian Orthodox Church is the independent national church of Bulgaria. The church is the heart of community life and reinforces the Bulgar peoples distinct people group identity.

Prayer Points

  • Pray that Bulgars will experience a personal relationship with the living God, Jesus Christ. They are religious, but lack understanding of the Gospel and a close relationship with the living God.
  • Pray that evangelical Christians will discover bridges to form friendships with the Bulgars and through the relationship encounter people of peace who will influence other Bulgars to understand how to have a personal relationship with the living God.
  • Pray for God to send workers into this field of opportunity to share the message of the Gospel.
