Matt & Caryl Aukerman

Matt and Caryl Aukerman have served in Albania with Global Partners since 2006. Albania is a country scarred by almost 45 years of communism, preceded by 400+ years under the Muslim Ottoman Empire.

The Aukermans are church planting among mostly nominal Muslims. They are now witnessing Albanian Jesus-followers emerging as leaders who provide leadership for the church. Matt and Caryl are involved in mentoring leaders, personal evangelism, discipleship, and children’s outreach as they minister holistically and encourage the development of a healthy, Albanian-led national church.

Matt and Caryl have three children. Noah and Grace are attending university in North America and preparing for ministry. Hannah is ministering with her parents in Albania.

“. . . I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it” (Matthew 16:18 NIV).
