The first time I was at PdF was as a little boy and I basically grew up with the ministry of Torchbearers Romania. I was able to experience, from the beginning, how God builds his kingdom through the people and the ministry here. Later on, I helped as a volunteer at camps and personally experienced how God works and I grew in my relationship with him.
I am part of the PdF staff team since April 2021 and I work in the outdoor ministry program. I serve here by planning and leading the outdoor camps and programs. These include the ski camps in the winter season and in the summer, the mountain survival camp, Max Bike, the Hiking camp and the adventure bible school ASCENT.
I love to be active with people in the mountains, to see God in his wonderful creation and to serve Jesus through Christ-centered experiential learning and to see how he changes hearts.
I’m from Pennsylvania in the United States. I came to PdF in the spring of 2019 for the Mission Bible School. While I was here I fell in love with Romania, the people, PdF, the staff and their mission so I decided to stay as a volunteer for one year. I supported the staff families with childcare and worked in the house and kitchen.
In the winter of 2020, I was asked to become part of the PdF staff team as Hospitality Manager. My position has changed since then and now I am responsible for organizing our volunteer outreaches, I am also a leader for some of our outdoor camps, kids camps and I am a snowboard instructor in the winter. I love being out on the mountain serving Jesus and telling people about the amazing things He has done and continues to do!
