What you can’t fit in a picture

What you can’t fit in a picture.jpg


It is said that a picture is worth a million words but there are some things that a picture can’t capture. Especially what the Holy Spirit does among us when we gather in His name, spend time together, meditate on His Word and even when we eat together. Something amazing happens when our big family joins to glorify His name. During this kind of fellowship, the Holy Spirit turns discouragement into hope, sorrow into joy, division into unity and we enjoy the time spent with God’s children leaving everything else in His capable hands.

In our community gatherings, everyone who seeks the Lord is welcomed. It doesn’t matter if you are Romanian or American, rich or poor, young or old. If you seek God from all your heart, our church is opened for you. This is a special place where the only thing that matters is the fact that Jesus Christ died and resurrected for every person in this world!

Our hearts are filled with joy when we have guests and we can share testimonies of God’s works in our lives. This is why you are welcome to visit us anytime.

Kids’ ministry

Besides our weekly gatherings, we continue to share the Gospel with the little ones through songs, games, cartoons and creative stories. Our greatest desire for our children is too see Jesus as He is and how important it is to listen and apply His Word.

Social activities

Another great joy for us is the possibility to help people in need from Icoana. Through God’s grace and with the support of people, our project “A fishing rod, not a fish” is expanding and people are overwhelmed by God’s faithfulness. Through this project we want to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community.

About us

We want to thank you for your support! Your prayers, encouragements and financial support means a lot for us and for our mission. We know that we can’t do this without you, that’s why “For we are labourers together with God” (1 Corinthians 3:9).

We are deeply grateful for God’s protection so far! Our boy Caleb is healthy and very energetic. I am also happy that my wife, Livia, is healthy and ready to welcome our baby girl in July.

Keep us in your prayers! Please pray for:

  • a healthy and easy delivery;

  • a good car for our family; our current car is damaged and the repairs cost more than the car itself;

  • resources to prepare our future baby’s room and the inside of our house;
