A missions agency launches hope for the future church in Romania.

By June 30, 2004

Romania (MNN)–Global Missions Fellowship has just launched an ambitious church planting campaign in key cities that have been largely unevangelized.

This is an effort to boost their current outreaches in Romania. GMF’s presence is already known in some areas, having been integrated 11 years ago.

The mission of GMF is to so mobilize the body of Christ around the world that a self-perpetuating indigenous church planting movement is ignited in every nation, resulting in a church for every neighborhood of every city, town and village of the world.

GMF’s Dave Bunnell, speaking from Romania, explains that people are very open to the Gospel. “They do this just by house-to-house evangelism and working with church leaders here. We’ve, in the four cities, seen several hundred professions of faith in Christ in each one, so far, and some of them have already seen church starts.”

The church planting campaign wraps up next month, but Bunnell says this is where the work begins. “Pray for the remaining church planting campaigns that will happen this summer. Around 120 Romanians and Americans will work together in each city to evangelize mission points where there are either very small churches or there are no churches, currently.”

Teams are working in Bucharest, Braila, Galati, and Constanta. GMF is convinced the area is strategic to reaching the whole of eastern Europe for Christ.
