Iulian was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania where he is still living together with his family. At the age of 17, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and has dedicated his life to spreading the Gospel to as many young people as possible.
After serving as a counselor in Christian camps in Romania for a few years as a teenager, Iulian chose to enroll at the Word of Life Bible Institute in Hungary. After graduating and receiving the Jack Wyrtzen’s memorial award, Iulian moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee to finish his master’s degree in theological studies at Temple Baptist Seminary. After his time in Tennessee, Iulian moved to Texas where he served in various roles with a few organizations such as BridgeBuilders, Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas and Man to Man Ministries, also in Plano, TX.
During Iulian’s three years in Texas, several significant life events took place. First, he married Roxana in 2006 and not long after, their first child, Julian, was born in Dallas, TX. Not long after, in 2008, Iulian and Roxana made the decision to answer God’s call to move back to Romania and start building the foundation for their student discipleship ministry Life Romania.
