Romania - 2022

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 is the capital city of Bucharest. This 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.”

Serve Project

You will be ministering to the poor by serving food, supplies, and love in the street.


I loved getting to know other Apostolics and feeling like a family. We spent so much time in intercessory prayer, we were truly of one mind and of one accord, and it really bonded us together like a family!
