The Nazarie Family

Learn more about us and what we do in Romania

What sets LIFE Romania apart from many youth ministries?! When we said “good-bye” to our last camper, or after we picked up the last soccer ball at the end of a sports tournament, the discipleship ministries of Life Romania are just beginning. Paul described this pattern of ministry as some planting the seed, others watering it, but ultimately God giving the increase (1 Cor 3:6).

The Nazaries will coordinate the discipleship efforts here at Life Romania, “watering” the seed of the Gospel that was planted. Their desire is to help shape a generation of young men and women who will become a force in their churches, passing on to the next generation the heritage of our faith and hope in Jesus Christ.

As the Director of Spiritual Formation, Claudiu will be involved with evangelistic events follow-up, 12 steps of discipleship, online Bible studies, Champions Weekend, MIA Collage, and the internship program.
