Born in a small town in the West Virginia coal fields... son of a coal miner... my story begins in a humble setting. I was not raised in a Christian home, but, I did have the influence of a Godly grandmother.
At age 14 my life was impacted when my father and mother received Christ which eventually led to my own conversion at age 15... changing my life forever.more about Eric...
The last 15 years of my life I have been studying, working as a youth pastor, and ministering—searching and questioning myself. How does God want to reach Romania for Christ? I believe with all my heart the answer to that question is through a Godly, solid, youth ministry.more about Iulian...

My Life Verse:
"Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 3:13-14

My Life Verse:
"If I say, I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name, there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot." - Jeremiah 20:9
Our passion for Christ is discipleship and youth camps!
The last 10 years of my life I have been studying, working as a youth pastor, and ministering... searching and questioning my self: How does God wants to reach Romania for Christ? I believe from all my heart the answer to that question is through a godly, solid, bible camp.
The ideaologies of communism were effectively spread across Europe through summer youth camps. This strategy changed a whole generation in just a few years! We can make the same impact on Romanian youth through our gospel-driven message, but for the glory of Jesus Christ!
Our counselors strive to build strong relationships with every camper during the summer so that they can disciple them throughout the school year through encouragement and accountability in studying God's Word.
Disciplship is crucial in our ministry. Once camp is over, the distractions of the world creep back in and we want to stay with our students year around so that there is continual spritual growth and maturity.
WHY IS DISCIPLESHIP IMPORTANT?
Discipleship is about values.
"This could not be clearer in the Gospels. Jesus' call is for a double action: leave and follow. "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men," he first said to Peter and Andrew in Matthew 4:19. And "Immediately they left their nets and followed him." Then to James and John. And "Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him." Whether nets or family, the call to follow Jesus is the call to walk away from something else. It is the call to this, not that. Here, not there." - Desiringgod.org
Through the discipleship of these young people, we are training up the youth of Romania to be able to serve the Lord in just about any activity or professional vocation they may pursue, such as the following:
- VBS/Crafts/Puppets Ministry
- Teaching: English/Bible
- Building: Landscaping/Mowing
- Medical Teams
- Door-to-Door Evangelism
- Orphanage Work
- Help the poor
- Pastoral/Leadership Conferences
- Couples/Marriage Conferences
- Topical Conferences
- Team Building Conferences
