Christian Ministry – Pastoring & Church Planting
Church Life, Leadership, and Planting
Arber Jaupllari is a prison chaplain and church planter in Albania.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a Christian while serving a prison sentence in 2016.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
The story of Joseph has been instrumental for me. Learning how Joseph forgave his brothers after they sold him into slavery transformed me. If Joseph could forgive that, I could forgive others as well, and I could receive forgiveness as well.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I am a church planter. I think that I will learn a lot about how to plant churches in my context through the Forum.
What is your ministry?
I visit two prisons four days a week to minister to the men who are there serving prison time. I also work for the Ignis Ministry in Albania, which plants churches in the capital city of Tirana, and every week go with my pastor to the village for church planting.
What are your past leadership roles?
In the past I have been a church elder, Bible study leader, and small group leader.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I want to grow in church planting and leadership. Albania needs to plant more churches and to make disciples. There are not many believers here.
