What is your ministry?

I am an elder in our evangelical Church, leading a house church and the medical ministry. I preach the Bible in the church. As a doctor and researcher, I am invited as a speaker to scientific conferences and university and church meetings to present the Christian worldview related to different topics. I am the leader of the Christian Medical Fellowship in Romania.

When did you trust Christ?

I was raised in a Christian family centered on the Bible. However, in school, the death of a classmate and other challenging events taught me to trust Jesus—in life and death.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

Several teachers had a strong influence in helping me see God’s hand at work in everything. After school, I started to be involved in evangelism with Campus Crusade and then became a youth leader in my church, the Neemia Church. Now, I lead Bible studies, home groups, and a medical ministry there.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

The Forum is instrumental, full of spiritual resources and blessed relationships. I will take the knowledge and enthusiasm to offer to my church and ministry. The Forum is my home away from home!

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

The goal of my ministry with the Neemia Church is to serve God by serving His people. With The Good Samaritan and the medicine from our Betenia Pharmacy, we give not just physical care but spiritual hope to those who come to us in need. I am also dedicated to serving and supporting my wife and the two children God has given me. Finally, I hope to continue to grow in my knowledge of science and my understanding of God’s grace so that I may do all these things better.
