Joseph Woodard


This summer I am returning to Albania to share the good news of the gospel with young people. This will be my 4th year going to Albania, and my 2nd year going to the city of Korce. I will be joined by 39 other people from my church who will be on teams going to Albania, Hungary, and Poland!

For the 6th year in a row, young adults from Watermark Community Church, through a partnership with Cru, are once again traveling on a Short-Term Discipleship Trip to minister to High School students and Young Adults/Future Leaders of Albania. It is amazing to see what God has done with our team in these years, going from 3 people to 40 this year!! Our group is traveling during the first 3 weeks of July. (I will be traveling July 7, 2018 through July 16, 2018.) 

This year (2018) marks the 27th anniversary of the fall of Communism in Albania and the 19th anniversary of the end of war in neighboring Kosovo, which included the deportation of 800,000 ethnic Albanians and the mass genocide of Kosovo Albanians. Today, there is still a great need for spiritual healing and the Gospel in Albania.

In partnership with Cru, we will be helping run summer camps for high school students in Tirana, Elbasan, and Korce. We will have the opportunity to play games, do team building activities, build friendships, have conversations over coffee, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to that, we will be serving the recently formed Albanian Young Professionals Group and building into the future leaders and young adults of Tirana, not to mention sharing with them our ultimate hope in the Gospel.
