Sebastian & Gloria Forjan
Patrik, Samuel & Izak
Sebastian, raised Catholic, attended church as almost every Slovene but didn’t believe in God. In 1995, he put his faith in Christ. While he served in the army for nine months, God put a burden on his heart for the youth of his country. After two years of growing in his faith, he became involved in youth work in his local church in Ljubljana. In 1998, he began dating Gloria, and in 2002 they were married. Sebastian spent one year as the first full-time youth pastor in Slovenian history working with his local church and Josiah Venture. The following year, he went to Belfast Bible College and studied there for two years. After finishing college in 2005, he and Gloria continued doing youth work in their local church. In December of 2006, they moved to a new town, Radovljica, to start a youth ministry there. It was a privilege for them to start a new youth ministry. Out of this group they planted an evangelical church in an area where there were no newborn believers. The Lord is opening doors in their region and his church is still growing. Their vision is to see the northwest part of Slovenia reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a joy and privilege for them to be a part of God’s work as they witness people coming to know the Lord and are growing in their daily walk with him. The Lord gave them three beautiful sons Patrik, born in 2009, Samuel, born in 2010, and Izak, born in 2013.
