Our purpose is to share the Gospel in the seaside city of Constanta and the surrounding area.

Constanta is located on the shore of the Black Sea and is the biggest Romanian port and one of the biggest touristic places. The population is mainly Orthodox but also Muslim, and there are quite a few evangelical Christians. Together with local churches we will reach out to children, adults and poor families.

The common team language will be English but the locals will speak Romanian. Do not expect them to know or be confident enough to speak English. There will be a translator on your team. In your acceptance pack, we will send you some basic phrases to learn too (Handbook Welcome to Romania).
