Cory and Kristine knew they wanted to be a part of God’s work in Eastern Europe when they heard a message on the Great Commission during chapel at the Master’s College in 2011. In Eastern Europe, less than 1% of people know Christ. This immense and immediate need led the Cramers to take their first steps toward Albania. After years of serving in their churches in student ministries, Cory and Kristine had grown to share a passion for discipleship, the local church, and God’s global mission. In 2011 they graduated with degrees in Biblical Studies and continued walking through open doors. In 2012 they led a team to Albania and hosted an English camp for youth. It was during this camp that God gave Cory and Kristine a love for Albania, the young people, and the culture, and a heart to see Albanians find salvation in Jesus Christ. Cory and Kristine are now planting a church alongside a national pastor in southern Albania in the city of Pogradec. This team hopes to build a church that will bring many to saving faith in Jesus and result in a transformed generation for their church and country. Cory and Kristine have two daughters, Shiloh and Taliah, and one son, Jude.
