Romania

Romania is a beautiful country in Central Europe and the struggling country has many opportunities for Christians to live out their faith.

Romania is a beautiful country that was once part of the Communist regime. OM has had a presence since that time when OM teams were actively involved in smuggling in Christian literature for the persecuted church. Full ministry began in January of 1992 and the church has been growing ever since.

Today, the primary focus of the OM team in Romania is to mobilize the church for local and world missions. We want to challenge believers to reach the ends of the Earth with the gospel that can transform other nations just as it has transformed ours. This is achieved through conferences, church meetings, and short-term mission programs. At the same time, we want to be faithful disciples of Christ and serving Him through our local outreach programs.

Our teams offer support to local Roma pastors and new believers through training and discipleship. We use sports as a tool to connect with the younger generation and share the love of God with them. We have started a football (soccer) league and several local basketball and volleyball teams. We also reach people with the gospel through Bus4Life, a traveling book caravan that connects people with our ministry.

There is a significant generational gap between the people of Romania. Unlike their parents who often hold traditional Communist values, the new generation is growing up with a more Western mindset. Our goal is to guide both generations through this transition using opportunities with our kids and youth programs and family games.

Compared to other European countries, Romania’s struggling economy has led to many people seeking better-paid jobs outside the country. By helping people with initiatives to start and grow a small business, we minimize this exodus and keep families together.
