The Disciples of Jesus Church brings the Good News to the capital city of Tirana and through mission outreach throughout the Balkans. Pastor Roland Sula and his wife DeAnne and a strong group of Elders lead this church. They also partner with area NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) to serve those in need in their community through a Food Bank, Prison Outreach, a Community Center and After School programs.

Our long term Global Partner, Dan and Alma Elliott have been involved in the Disciples of Jesus Church for many years and Dan currently serves as the Lead Elder. Rolling Hills sent many teams to partner with Dan in the late 1990s and early 2000s through “Project AERO” that brought the gospel through “The Jesus Film” to every village in Albania and saw many people come to Christ and many churches started as a result.
