An intensive missions focused program designed to:
- prepare students for cross-cultural ministry
- deepen their understanding of the Bible
- bring them closer in their relationship with Jesus
- experience loving fellowship with other believers
There are 3 exciting challenge weeks built into the program:
A 5-day outdoor adventure week in which students will have to work together as a team in any of the following activities:
- Mountain Biking
- Ropes Course
- Rock Climbing
A 5-day period in which students will be fully immersed into a cultural setting, forcing them to learn and adapt to the foreign culture they are placed in.
A 5-7 day mission trip for which students will be fully responsible to prepare and lead various outreach activities in the chosen area. Some groups remain in Romania while other groups may have the chance to go outside Romania to a local country such as Moldova, Ukraine, Bulgaria, etc.
Students will be given time to soak in the word of God through daily lectures, weekly solo times, small group Bible studies, and daily student devotions.
Students will be taught from God’s Word by experienced guest lecturers from other Torchbearers centers, local Romanian ministry leaders, and PdF staff teachers. Many of our teachers desire to teach in a way that is practical for students, and lectures are presented in English or Romanian with translation available, if two or more students should require.
Outreach is a big part of our program. Each student will choose a weekly local outreach that they will go to throughout the program. Possible outreach opportunities could be:
- After school programs (kids or teenagers)
- Orphanage ministry
- Street evangelism
- Sports outreach
- Local church ministry
- Youth groups
- Worship arts ministry
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24
Community & Discipleship
Connecting as a community is an important part of what we do at our center. We want our students to become a part of our community in as many ways as possible including the following:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3-4
Students are assigned to a different staff family group each week. During this time the students and family will enjoy food and fellowship together, getting to know each other and having fun. The purpose of this time is for the students to get first-hand experience of life as a missionary, to experience the unique culture of each family, and to grow in relationship with the staff here at PdF.
Are you a musician? Actor? Painter? Dancer? All these skills can be used to lead people to worship God!
Students who are musical in any way will be welcome to join a weekly worship team and also participate in outreach worship events, either at a local church or on the mission trip.
Worship Arts training will be shared by experienced staff members.
Instrument lessons will be available from staff members if there is interest.
The following events will require students to lead the praise and worship:
- prayer nights
- sunday evening services
- local outreaches
- extended mission trip
- various local church services
“I really appreciate how PdF is one big family. Everyone is there for each other to support and encourage one another. One thing that my time at bible school taught me is the importance of fellowship. I was challenged to let God lead my relationships with the other students and the staff. Learning to love others more deeply and unconditionally has grown my heart and desire for their Creator even more.”
“It amazes me that through three months of frustration and insecurity, there was incredible growth. Bible School was one of the most challenging times I have ever experienced in my life. But God brought me their for that very reason; He took the passion for missions and instead taught me what sustains a missionary: abiding in Christ, through perseverance.”
Bible School in Romania was a great time for me. The program helped me to step out of my comfort zone in many different ways. Outreaches, lectures, and simply sharing life with each other was a lot of fun but it also enabled me to grow personally and in my relationship with God. I loved seeing how He was working in the life of every single student.
To teach from the Bible in order to bring the students to a complete understanding of how our risen Lord and Savior Jesus dwells in us and fulfills his saving purpose for the whole world through us.
