Church Planting Ministry and Bible Institute, Farcasa Romania


In Romania we have identified one area of the country that has only 2 evangelical churches in an area approximately 80 miles long. There are 100 villages on both sides of the beautiful Bistritsa River in this 80 mile stretch. We already operate Mountain Air Bible Camp right in the heart of this area. There, we are ready to start a 4 year Bible Institute operated on a modular basis, holding 4 sessions per year for one intensely concentrated week each session. We have 12 men ready to start this 4 year program of study in preparation for ministry. This school like our school in India and Moldova will be operated on a modular basis. 4 times a year the men and some women come together for intense study for one week. We supply food, syllabus, and in some cases housing for that week, so we need funds to continue such a needy ministry. Without proper training we continually see doctrinal error and improper church polity followed. If you can help us with these expenses please mark your gift accordingly. In the Bistritsa Valley of Romania we are attempting to plant new churches in the various villages, with an emphasis on house churches with the few Christian Families located there. But there is a great lack of trained leadership, maturity, and doctrinal clarity. Our goal, as an agent of the local church is to help  train men learn in a school that still allows them to work at their normal job.

Mountain Air Bible Camp, Farcasa Romania

We are grateful for the ministry that God has allowed us to be a part of with children and teens from all walks of life, including children from a local orphanage. This camp has been used of God to change lives, we pray in a lasting and eternal way. Our goal is to run the camp each year for six weeks. Sometimes this is possible, and other times, financial restraints hinder that. GTMI would like to consistently, God willing remain a constant in this area as a place for young people to come to hear about the love of Jesus each year.

Right now God has provided half of the budget needed for the camp to operate, and funds are needed to have sufficient resources to operate for the 6 full weeks. A total of $15,000 is needed of which we have raised $10,200. If God touches your heart to give please do so at this time. If you have questions you may call me at either of the numbers on the contact page or email him at gracetruthministries@gmail.com.

We appreciate your sacrifice!

UPDATES

We at GTMI know that we are facing tough times economically in the United States and therefore around the world. The Gospel continues to be preached, and the need for correct teaching is still there even in the worst of times. We want to thank you for continuing, or in some cases, beginning to support the God-honoring efforts of Grace and Truth Ministries International as we eagerly anticipate the coming of the Lord, and thus minister His Good News around the world.

If you have any questions, we would enjoy speaking with you. You may contact me at one of the phone numbers listed on the contact/support page of this site. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours this means that I am usually ministering overseas. In this case, please drop an email, and I'll be happy to get back to you when the time constraints of ministry allow me to.

You may send your tax deductible gifts to the address listed on the contact page of this site. Check back monthly and we will be posting monthly updates to the "Monthly News" tab of this site. We would be honored if you would keep up with the exciting ministries of Grace and Truth Ministries International.

God bless you,

The need for correct doctrine is great! Can you help?

I’m more convinced all the time that the most lasting effect we can have on ministry in foreign lands is that of training pastors and Christian leaders. Yet, it is the hardest ministry to raise money for. There are hundreds of pastors in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Visiting Christian bookstores and looking on line for good theological books in their language of Telugu is very discouraging because of the limited selection. Yes evangelism is critical, building buildings is a positive step, Camp Ministry for young people is vital, but if we’re to see an expansion of true Biblical Christianity with correct doctrine, church polity, and proper balance, the ministry of Bible Institutes will have the longest and greatest impact I believe. In order to carry on these three vital schools in India, we need a total of $7500 per year.

In 2011, Margie and I did a survey trip of the Nation of Kenya at the invitation of Wycliffe Wakhungu. It became apparent that there is a great need for sound Biblical teaching in the western part of the country, particularly in Webuye. In 2012, GTMI was privileged to begin a new Bible Institute in Webuye. We registered 232 Pastors and Christian workers. It became apparent from the questions and comments from these students that there is a real void of sound, balanced Biblical teaching. We therefore want to continue at least 2 classes per year in the future.

We currently have past graduates pastoring churches in Romania, Moldova. GTMI has also, in cooperation with Nationals, planted 3 churches in India. We prayerfull anticipate that as our students graduate, that there will be scores of new churches planted in India and Kenya. If you can help with this ministry either by giving financially or by volunteering as a professor for a week, please email me at the above address or write. We really need to hear from some of you at this time.
