Dr Kosta Milkov is a man of many parts. But strikingly, several of the strings to his bow could be said to have resulted from meeting John Stott in the early 90s. Having studied theology at a seminary in Osijek in Croatia, he would go on with his wife Nada to start up the IFES work in his native Macedonia (in former Yugoslavia). Having met Uncle John at an IFES conference in Poland, he would go on to study one summer at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) with Stott and others; in time this would lead him to do a Masters at Gordon-Conwell in the USA and, as a Langham Scholar, a doctorate at Oxford in Patristics. Then in recent years, he has been instrumental in starting Langham Preaching in Macedonia. He is a real livewire, a published poet and brilliant teacher, and above all, an inspiring disciple of Christ.
