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.
Available for: Singles Couples Families Groups
A significant part of this work 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 street 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; the number of international participants is limited.
You should have a heart for those who are lost, without fear of a spiritual battle and enthusiastic to share the Gospel with anyone we will have the chance to meet, especially young people. All participants should be physically fit, able to cope with irregular meal schedules and a warm climate. Participants will need to be team players with a teachable heart and a desire to submit and grow. Being flexible, forgiving, encouraging and having a good sense of humor is essential.
Team members will sleep in the local church building or in the small mission centre. Please make sure you have your own sleeping bag and air mattress. Toilet facilities may be very basic and showers may be primitive and / or limited.
We will provide the meals in partnership with the local church and may have a rotating "kitchen help" schedule for you to be involved in.
