Andrej & Lydia Zelenjak

Slovenia

Mission of the Month Spotlight

Ministry Focus:

Andrej and Lydia, and their son, live in the western Alps, in Slovenia. They were married in 2011, and their son Elija was born two years later. They entered into fulltime ministry a few months after their wedding. They have a strong desire to pioneer more churches in Slovenia as well as internationally. They are flexible to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and there is nothing more important to them as to follow the Lord full-heartedly.

Andrej invited the Lord into his life through a family member in Canada in 2003. His life turned around drastically and from that moment on he wanted to dedicate his life to spreading the wonderful news of Jesus Christ in his home country and around the world as the Lord leads him. In 2009 he finished Bachelor of Theology at the Master’s College and Seminary in Toronto, Canada. Lydia comes from a strong Christian family that has followed the Lord for generations. She graduated with a degree in Bible education in Serbia.

Andrej: "Since 2013, when Lydia and I stepped into fulltime ministry, we have been through the most difficult and the most beautiful times in our lives. We thought it would be easier to work as pioneer workers in Slovenia, but we have discovered that it is extremely hard work. Nevertheless, these past years were also the most beautiful in our lives; through the difficulties we were facing, we learned to trust the Lord despite the circumstances we were facing. A year and a half into our ministry, we had to rethink where we are in God’s plan and the Lord confirmed through the prophetic word we are just where He wants us to be. Praise the Lord! We full-heartedly continue following the Lord wherever He is leading us. Now we can say the same thing as the Apostle Paul wrote '...I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me' (Philippians 4:12- 13). Through the Lord’s grace, we were able to put on many outreach events, and worship and charitable concerts in the town of Kobarid. In these past years, we have sowed the seeds of the Gospel to hundreds of peoples’ hearts. We are praying and looking forward for the harvest to come in its time. Please, join us in our prayers!"

Ministries We support


  • Souls for Christ - Dean O'Connor

    Rev. Dean C O'Connor, the leader of SFC began his ministry in the Ottawa Valley working with various leaders and ministries. The first few years of Dean's ministry was largely shaped by the Holy Spirit as Dean was lead to go to Bible College to learn about his call and ministry. Following graduation from Eastern Pentecostal Bible College, Dean began to preach on the streets and learned his call and leading in the ministry as an Evangelist.

    From there Dean felt God leading him to leave his small home town and to go a much larger mission field to where he would spend more than 21 years of his life working with homeless and needy people and with the vast number of unsaved people who need to hear the Gospel. Today, Dean is preaching, teaching, and ministering as a Home Missionary/Evangelist in Canada's largest Inner City, Toronto Ontario Canada.

  • Mission Canada - Ejay Tupe

    Ejay brings years of urban ministry experience to the Mission Canada team. Based in the urban core of Toronto, Ejay has ministered to countless marginalized youth and young adults, journeying with some to help them better their housing, employment and education situations. It is Ejay’s desire to bring Christ into every setting he finds himself in.  

    Poverty and injustice are very visible in Toronto’s urban core. Every day, the rich, the poor, and the middle class, interact and intersect, unaware that in God’s vision, each belongs to the other.
    Many care about the state of a city yet due to daily busyness many are not able to positively influence those who find themselves either on the streets or in challenging life situations. For this reason, it is crucial that Mission Canada place workers in these gaps of our nation – people who know the city well, have the networks, and can bring life transforming change to those who need it most. Ejay is here… in the city… because we must.
