Young Life Spoken Here

Young Life's mission in Romania:

How do you earn the right to be heard in a country where folks are incredibly suspicious of foreigners and especially missionaries? By loving and serving the community, we not only share the Gospel, but show its relevance for community development.

We have developed a thriving ministry (called IMPACT) that follows the core principles of Young Life. This has been the most successful youth movement in Romania (a challenging place for youth work). We started with one club in 2003 and now have 140 clubs — the largest movement in the country.

To help kids hear the Gospel in their own language and culture, we try, when possible, to share the good news through Orthodox leaders, given almost 90 percent of the culture is Orthodox.
