Church Planters

The Position

Church planting is one of the most difficult yet rewarding challenges in all of missions work. As a church planter in Romania, you’ll work within our well-established framework to plant new churches in communities where there is no evangelical presence.

As a church planter, you will:

  • Help Romania’s Baptist churches save unreached people groups by developing new ways to share the good news of the gospel
  • Demonstrate superior knowledge and understanding of Scripture, and be able to facilitate meaningful discussions about faith and Jesus Christ among members of the community
  • Strengthen the pastors in Romania who are trying to accomplish big goals with very little resources
  • Assist or mentor Romanian church planters in cities and villages with no gospel witness
  • Bring a genuine love for people, the energy and determination to succeed, and a passion for Christ to a land filled with nonbelievers
The Need

The ABWE team in Romania has experienced great success, but there is still more work to be done and not enough believers to accomplish it. Nearly every country that surrounds Romania is home to an unreached people group, and even within Romania there are thousands of villages where the truth of the gospel is not yet known. ABWE’s goal is to bring hope and relief to the pastors and communities who are trying to accomplish so much with so little. If you want to work within an established framework of relationships to offer support, training and fellowship to Romania’s servant-leaders, answer God’s call in Romania.

The Impact

Use your skills to help fulfill the Great Commission. As Christians, Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and we believe that process isn’t completed until these disciples are gathered into a local community of believers: a church. Church planting is the heartbeat of evangelism, and it’s at the core of who we are at ABWE. It’s hard work, but for those called to the challenge, there is no greater reward on earth than watching a community of believers grow in their faith, and begin to understand their own role in the Great Commission.
