Adi and Lavinia are native Romanians introduced to BRBC by Jayme Metzgar in her work with

Romanian orphans. They have been ministering to their fellow Romanians since graduating from Emmanuel Bible Institute in Oradea; Romania.

They planted the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Targu Jiu — a city in the very poor region of southwest Romania below the Carpathian Mountains — in the early 2000s.

Adi and Lavinia are driven by their passion for Romanians who have never heard about Jesus Christ. The Gospel was suppressed for generations under communism.
