Vanja Bule

M.Div. ‘06

"She found the tools she needed to help rebuild a country."

If you were called to help rebuild your war-torn nation, where would you start? For Vanja Bule, a native of the Balkans, it started half a world away, at Regent University. After researching other seminaries, Vanja decided on Regent for its unique combination of practical, hands-on ministry training and a strong academic program that could be applied cross-culturally. Today, she's back home in Croatia and Bosnia, rebuilding the Church and her country.

Serving as the director for Camp Emek Beraka, located in the mountains between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Vanja desires to see the camp serve the body of Christ in Bosnia & Herzegovina in the areas of evangelism, discipleship and equipping for the work of the ministry in the church. Vanja says this about what God is doing in and through Camp Emek Beraka:

"Over the past 15 years the ministry of the summer camps has brought many blessings in many different ways to the Church. We have experienced ethnic walls fall down, broken hearts healed, lost people getting saved, young people called into ministry, and Christian leaders strengthen, refreshed through fellowship with other leaders and presence of the Lord. There seems to be few other ministries in this country whose effect is so overarching and of such importance for God's plan for the Balkans!"
