Hope Church is pastored by Raul Costea and his wife Ana. Hope Church is also the parent church of 5 other church plants in their region. RESO is a ministry lead by the church and means “Reaching and Evangelizing Southern Olt.” With the influx of European funds into Romania the county of Olt in Southern Romania has been largely ignored by the government. Through RESO Hope Church wants to meet people’s spiritual needs by sharing with them the hope of Christ as well as their physical needs through social ministries. Some of the current social ministries are:
- An after school ministries for children.
- Help provided to local farmers in acquiring equipment and seeds as well as beehives.
- Providing impoverished families with firewood and fresh milk.
- Involvement with a local thrift store.
Construction of a Church/Multi-Use-Building will begin in 2017. In addition to typical church functions the building will also be used as a clinic and ministry center. Local schools and clinics are underfunded and in need of repairs. RESO Ministries intends to renovate the bathrooms at the local school as well as provide a fence around the schoolyard. Team members will spend one week working with various local outreach ministries and one week providing help to the community through a construction project.
Whether you have helping hands or professional skills they are welcome! Team members are needed in the following areas:
- Children's Ministry
- Women's Ministry
- Plaster Work
*Final cost is dependent on number of team members, specific project scope, and project duration.
