The Christian Trust of Belgrade (Hrišćansko Udruženje Beograd, HUB) in Serbia is home to a Bible School designed to serve the church in the Balkan region of Eastern Europe. It traces its origins back to 1992, when a small group of people from Oak Hall Expeditions travelled to Yugoslavia to take medicines to a country that was at that time torn by civil war.
The Bible School opened in 1996, and since then over 300 students have graduated, many of whom now serve in churches all across the Balkans. The Bible School provides a tremendous resource for churches in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo, providing theological training and promoting unity in Christ among nations formerly divided by bitter ethnic conflicts.
The Bible School is led by the Director, Sladjan Milenkovic, pictured here with his wife Jaroslava and his children Sara and Jana. Follow Sladjan on Facebook.

Financial support comes from churches and individual Christians overseas, and the teaching is provided by Ministers and staff from churches and theological seminaries throughout Europe and beyond.
