NLR partners with Transform Europe Network (TEN), a Gospel-based charity, to support a church-based mission in Constanta on the Black Sea. The leaders of the church live sacrificially and have an amazing vision for their area. This includes:
In the current crisis where men are unable to find work in the surrounding villages, it is not uncommon for the children only to eat once daily and the parents only once every three days! The church distributes food and practical aid to poor families and widows, and NLR supports this financially.
Evangelism and Church Plants
They share the Good News of the love of God as they go, and as a result four new churches have already been planted. More are being planned in an area that is otherwise completely empty of Gospel outreach. The hope that is shared, particularly during the current Covid-19 crisis, has led to many coming to faith and being baptised.
The next generation is being reached in the villages through Bible stories, games and crafts. NLR gives funding for the crafts and snacks.
The pastors organise and run a nationally-recognised 2-year course of Bible study and leadership training. Graduates are then able to move on and pastor new church plants or minister in other aspects of church leadership.
WE WANT TO STAND IN THE GAP FOR THE NEGLECTED ONES: WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP?
- for safety for the leaders
- for favour with the local authorities
- for financial provision for ongoing aid
- for encouragement for the developing leaders being trained
- for the new believers: in Romania Christians face much persecution and are often excluded by their families and society.
