Our goal is to proclaim the gospel of peace to young people in the Orthodox environment who have probably never heard how to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

We will be involved in the church planting activities in Corabia (Olt), in the southern extremity of Romania. Together with the members of the local church, we want to be connected with young people and preach the Gospel of Peace in an area where less than 1% of the population are born again believers.

A significant part of this ministry will be prayer, proclaiming Jesus' victory over surrounding occultism, lack of godliness, broken relationships, adultery, violence, and the worship of ancestors. We will have prayer walks and personal conversations with young people on the streets and in other public places. One of our tools for engaging in quality conversations will be questionnaires. There may also be the opportunity for home visits and literature distribution. It is also possible to get involved in sports activities to create bridges to proclaim the Gospel. We will be a small team so the number of international participants is limited.

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 translators on your team. We will send you some basic phrases to learn too upon acceptance.
