  1. 1. Jake and Jessie Stimpson :: Missionaries to Romania :: THE MISSION: Preach the Gospel, make disciples, raise up leaders, and establish churches until the whole Earth is filled with the glory of the Lord!
  2. 2. The Challenge A nation of roughly 22 million, Romania is the poorest and least-developed nation in the European Union, due to years of Communist oppression, but at the same time, there is a growing hunger to see God move in the nation.
  3. 3. The Challenge: the city Our plan is to base in Bucharest, a city of 3 million and the economic, cultural, and political center of Romania. The Need: 230,000 impoverished Gypsies 96% Romanian Orthodox An estimated 0.07% evangelical Christians (2,100 people) Four times as many Muslims as Christians The Potential: 35 colleges and universities Economic and cultural center of Romania Huge population of English-speakers Statistics from Open Society Institutes Survey into Religiosity in Romania
  4. 4. The Challenge: the nation From Bucharest, our goal is to disciple and train up pastors and church-planters to reach the cities of Romania. 43% have no access to safe water $3,900 - average annual income 25% live below poverty level 535,140 are marginalized Gypsies (2nd highest in the world) 37% of pregnancies end in abortion (US is 22%) Half the nation survives on subsistence farming Statistics from US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Eurostat, World Vision, Abortion Incidence and Access to Services in the United States, and Historical Abortion Statistics: Romania
  5. 5. The Challenge: the world Ultimately, our goal is to see pastors, church-planters, missionaries, and evangelists launched from Romania to the ends of the world. One of the most exciting things about Romania is that it is uniquely situated to reach the Eastern Hemisphere!
  6. 6. Our Call to Romania
  7. 7. About Cornerstone Church • Incorporated in 1989 • Local churches in Oconomowoc, Spring Green, Milwaukee, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica • 2012 – projected launch of Cornerstone Bucharest
  8. 8. Our Vision for Romania Preach the Gospel, make disciples, raise up leaders, and establish churches until the whole Earth is filled with the glory of the Lord! To do this, we will be focusing our efforts on reaching college students and twenty-somethings in Bucharest, and training them up to reach the city and the rest of the nation with us.
  9. 9. Our Methods Preach the Gospel Focus on English-speakers first Street witnessing, door-to-door, tracts, open-air preaching Tables with free literature Free English classes Make disciples Small group Bible studies Raise up leaders Solid Rock Ministry Training School Establish churches Send out pastors from Bucharest to the rest of the nation
  10. 10. Our Commitment • We commit to work diligently to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unreached of Romania. • We commit to disciple followers of Christ to be active in living for the Kingdom of God. •We commit to keep people informed of how their support is reaching the nations.
  11. 11. Four Ways You Can Help 1 If we’re going to see Romania transformed for the glory of God, we need to be supported by a lot of prayer. Would you commit to praying and interceding for what God is calling us to in Romania?
  12. 12. Four Ways You Can Help 2 Jesus said, “The harvest is ripe but laborers are few.” We want to invite you to join us to do ministry in Romania, whether you want to come for a few days, a few weeks, or a few years.
  13. 13. Four Ways You Can Help 3 To reach our goal of $3,000 in monthly support, we’re looking for people who will be able to pledge personally toward our support, becoming part of our mission team. Would you commit to support our ministry on a monthly basis?
  14. 14. Four Ways You Can Help 4 One of the biggest needs we have right now is for contacts of other people who might want to hear about what we’re doing. Do you know anyone else passionate about reaching the lost who might be interested in hearing our vision?
  15. 15. Thank You! Thank you so much for taking the time to hear about what God is calling us to in Romania.
