Daniel and Kristina Herceg initially were working to establish a church in Bjelovar, and in late 2021 moved to Čakovec, the capital of Međimurje county, the northmost county in Croatia. They are members in Baptist Church Betanija (Bethany).
Daniel serves there as the pastoral assistant at Betanija. His main ministries are to develop and teach the discipleship class called Themelios, and to lead and oversee the youth ministry. He shares the pulpit with the pastor of the church. He is also teaching Biblical Greek and several other classes at Theological Biblical Academy (a school that is part of The Master’s Academy International) and serves as the assistant to the Academic dean as well. Occasionally Daniel visits other churches in Croatia where he preaches and represents Theological Biblical Academy.
They are praying to see a network of like-minded churches making an effort in church planting in Croatia, supporting Croatians and missionaries that would come alongside them. There is a huge need in revitalisation of already existed churches as well.
Daniel graduated from Theological Biblical Academy in Croatia in 2018 and completed a M.Div. at the European Bible Training Centre in 2023.
Daniel and Kristina have two sons: Isaiah and Jeremiah.
