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.
