Who are we
We like to think that we are a young (at heart, at least), dynamic, open-minded, international, inter-denominational missions team. We have people of all ages, from 18 to their late 50’s… We currently have people with us from Romania, England, Ireland, Sweden, and the U.S.A. and over the years have had people from many different denominational backgrounds including Baptist, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Presbyterian, Anglican, Lutheran, Free Methodist and Greek Orthodox. Our missions team is supported by both full time and part time Romanian staff as well as short and medium term volunteers from around the world. If you would be interested in joining us or getting involved as a short or medium term volunteer or as part of a team, then please check out the getting involved pages and if you are interested in longer-term or the missions training program, then please check out the missions training pages
Our board is made up of members from England, Sweden and Romania.
