Church Planting Craiova

Raul Costea, the coordinator of Hope Church Ministry, started focusing his attention to Craiova at the beginning of 2018. That year, he started building a team for church planting in Craiova and assisting existing churches in Dolj county. This city has over 300,000 people and more than 30,000 students. Some of them are foreigners from different Middle East countries. This is the new frontier for Hope Church Ministry.
Our vision is to bring the hope of Christ to Craiova through a church plant and mission base in the city.
We want to show compassion and engage with the non-believers here so that we can lead them to knowing God and His Word.

Pray for us:

  • For more people to come to know Christ
  • For more long-term missionaries to move here and work alongside us
  • For open doors with youth, Roma and women’s ministries
  • For open hearts for discussions during evangelism
  • For New Testaments that were given out to be read and for God’s Word to touch and transform people’s lives
  • For monthly financial partners to support the church plant here and all that goes along with that
Together we are working to fulfill the vision that God has given us for Craiova; to plant a church and mission base here that will impact people’s lives and bring the hope of Christ to them. We would love to have you alongside us!
