Cornel is an evangelist and church planter in the villages surrounding Braila, Romania. Cornel ministers in an area rife with orthodoxy, and encourages fellow believers in the face of opposition. He also facilitates focused outreach to special groups like young people and nursing home residents. Because of the economic conditions in the area, many young people are leaving; and there is no children’s minister available. Cornel has welcomed the opportunity to minister to the children and residents in nursing homes. Families of those he serves have been impacted by his ministry. Cornel is married to Veronica and they have two children.
