Cornel & Dorothy


Cornel Pascu, his wife Dorothy (from Denmark) and their two children live in Onesti. He preaches and leads a ministry which we have been pleased to observe in person on two occasions. It is a joy to speak with Cornel as translator – he is a master of numerous languages. But even more impressive is to see the way this ministry has developed. Cornel has indicated that his passion is to see the next generation reached for Christ. The vision is being reached through vibrant worship, discipleship training, children’s programs and camps, and remote village (Marcesti, Botezuri) compassion and evangelism efforts. There is intentional collaboration with other Christian leaders and an expressed purpose to not be bound by manmade rules and regulations that often end up causing mission drift in many churches. On one occasion when Doug preached, Camelia committed her life to Jesus. Cornel had been in previous contact with her, but in his words, this night was her appointed hour of salvation. She had experienced a devastating fire that took the lives of two of her children, ages 2 & 5. She parented the surviving 5 children alone as her husband had abandoned the family. Real ministry is interacting with real people in real need, and allowing God to change lives.
