Arben & Irma

MIWC Balkan Director

Albania & The Balkan Peninsula

Arben and Irma were born and raised in the strict communist era of Albania’s history. They saw Albania opened to democracy in 1991 when the first missionaries were able to enter and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

Initially, they worked planting churches, but in 2011 felt a call to help their nation find its worshipping voice and raise up generations of Christ-followers for the future. They have given their lives to this vision through the Selah Worship Arts Ministry and have lived by faith for more than ten years.

Arben and Irma live in Albania’s capital city, Trana, with their son, Samuel, and daughter, Sibora.
