Come to Eastern Europe to experience and minister in a country with beautiful nature and beautiful souls! Romania is home to the famous Transylvanian region where you will tour Dracula’s castle, dense forests and the second-longest mountain range in Europe, the Carpathian Mountains. One of the largest cities in Europe, the capital city of Bucharest, is where our headquarters church is located and where you will also find The Parliament Palace, the second largest building in the world. Through feeding the hungry, ministering in the streets and in crusade services, you will proclaim the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Ghost in this historic “Land of the Romans.”

When I left for my AYC trip to Costa Rica, there was no way I could have anticipated what God had in store for me. I left for Costa Rica, hoping to see God perform miracles in the lives of those around me. I never imagined that he also planned on touching my life, and healing the insecurities that I had struggled with for years. It took me flying all the way to Costa Rica to realize something; The God who healed bodies and filled souls with his spirit in Central America, was at work back at my home in Maryland. I left AYC not feeling afraid to go back home, but confident that when I went home, he would be the same God. Since AYC, my faith has been amplified and I know that God is the same, no matter where I am!
