Iasi, Romania is home to over a thousand internationals from all over the world. Mostly students, they come to Iași for schooling at one of the seven universities in the city. In 2006, God strategically lined up David and Erin with GCM to launch an outreach to this population of students. They moved to Romania in 2008 modestly hoping to start a Bible study of a few students within the first year; however, after three months they had thirty students meeting regularly for worship and study of the Word. Thus a church was born, Eclesia International.
Today, four years later, the church has over 40 members from at least nine different nations. They meet weekly for a meal and corporate worship and several member-led small groups throughout the week. They are uniquely positioned to reach out to Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, atheists, and agnostics from over 60 different nations! Many have come to Christ and the church continues to grow.
