Romania is an agriculturally rich region that has enjoyed steady progress since overthrowing its communist regime in 1989. Its Black Sea coastlines have become a popular tourism destination while the Carpathian Mountains tower over the west.
Decades of persecution have forged an unrelenting resolve among Christians to spread the Gospel. Today, there are nearly 6,000 churches established across the country. With Europe’s fourth largest evangelical population, Romania has become a strategic focus for missions agencies who are planting churches in the country’s unchurched villages. Still, 67,000 people remain completely unreached within Romania and countless communities are still without a local church.
