Criuleni is a small city 30 minutes west of the capital city of Chisinau. It is known to be rich in crime, but very poor in Christian presence. We are involved in youth and family ministry here and we believe that Criuleni is a strategic area in the spiritual battle for Moldova. Our passion is to see a strong house church community grow here, with Moldovan leadership, and to change the present culture by leading the next generation to Jesus Christ.
We have joined, through prayer and financial support, Christians in the village of Caplani , their mayor, and the JM Demaree Foundation, who are constructing houses for the desperately needy, elderly and orphans from their community. Upon completion, we look forward to joining them for worship and outreach.

CHANCE TO THRIVE, INTL.
The leadership of CTI is passionate about working with single mothers, helping them to become self-sufficient as well as leading them to Jesus Christ. We have begun to join them in their activities (social projects, Bible study and worship, etc...) and look forward to partnering with them more and more in the future.

CHILDRENS EMERGENCY RELIEF, INTL. (CERI)
The organization that first brought us to Moldova, they are a Christian social organization, reaching out to meet the social and spiritual needs of Moldova's vulnerable youth. CERI emphasizes (with their students) giving back, through social projects, to others in vulnerable situations. We have joined them in these projects, Bible studies, camps, their signature Winter Boot Mission, as well as personally discipling several of the CERI students.

After several short-term mission trips to Moldova, and seeing many decisions for Christ, we realized that what was lacking was the personal discipleship that should follow. We are involved in small group ministry through the local church and groups we have in our own home. Through these, and the projects we work with, God continues to give us specific youth to personally disciple. We believe that the heart of church growth is personal discipleship.
