Brief Profile

Tosk people are Tosk-speaking population people from southern Albania. The Tosk language is one of two main dialects, the other being Gheg, spoken in Albania. Although mutually intelligible with one another, social-cultural norms derived from a long history of how the Tosk and Gheg view one another reinforce the Tosk's own distinct social identity. Tosk are often known to be friendly and talkative whereas Gheg are often known to be more stern and courageous. At the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century many Albanians migrated to Europe with the majority being Tosks.

The vast majority of Tosks reside in Italy. Other countries with significant populations include Germany, France, Macedonia, and United Kingdom.

Most Albanian Tosk are nominal Muslims, following only Islam because of their past family and ethnic heritage. Many have begun to marry outside their people group.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for Albanian Tosks who are more secular than Muslim that Christians will become their friends and reveal through their lifestyle an intimate relationship with a living God.
  • Pray for Albanian Tosk who are inter-marrying to come in contact with evangelical Christians who will effectively share the message of Christ.
  • Pray Tosk disciples of Christ will boldly share their testimony that will lead to other Tosk disciples being made.
