Nolan and Sandra Sharp Cru in Croatia
Nolan’s roots at PBC go back to 1992 when he was a college freshman. He was in Croatia on a summer mission trip 1997 when he met Sandra, who is from Croatia and was working as a missionary to college students. They started to date and married in 1999. It was in the PBC intern program that they discerned God’s call to return to Croatia for full-time ministry. Nolan and Sandra moved to Croatia in 2001 to found a ministry to the marketplace. They have been missionaries with Cru in Croatia for 15 years. They have two sons, Daniel and Philip. Nolan leads Cru’s outreach in the Croatia marketplace and overseas operations for the Cru team of 25 missionaries in Croatia. Sandra disciples young women leaders and coordinates spiritual care for the women on the Cru team. They use special speakers and intriguing seminars to meet new people, develop relationships, and share the Gospel. They work to integrate those who come to Christ into churches. Their goal is to see a movement for Christ take off among young leaders in Croatia.
