Beginning in 1947, Romania became an independent communist state with a highly oppressive regime. The secret police were among the most ruthless and invasive in Eastern Europe. Under communist rule, the Church faced widespread persecution. Christians endured forced labor, torture, exile, and even death.

In December 1989, a swift and bloody revolution swept through Romania following the government’s attempted ousting of pastor László Tőkés in Timișoara. Protests turned into riots that eventually led to the arrest and execution of President Nicolae Ceaușescu on Christmas Day.

Since the fall of communism, a significant revival has swept through Romania. The pain endured by so many Christians has set the stage for an amazing new chapter in the Church’s history and you can be a part of it.


We are currently serving the people of Romania with the following initiatives.

Church Planting
We are establishing local churches all over Romania that are reproducing at an exponential rate. You can play a role in a global church planting movement by reaching those who would otherwise never hear the Gospel. Imagine generations of new believers making Christ first in their lives because you answered the call to go.
