Besides our base team in Chişinău, smaller OM teams live and work directly in Moldovan village communities, practically assisting local churches in their ministry and helping to plant new churches in unreached villages. Over the years we have had a number of different Local Ministry Teams throughout the country, usually working in one place for several years. At times we also send “Action Teams”, who support a church over a period of a few months, helping them develop a vision for ministry within their community.
At the moment, we have one Local Ministry Team in the centre of Moldova, working together with the local church in Micleușeni to reach its surrounding villages. They assist with two church plants and a Day Centre, are involved in various other children’s ministries and youth work and also deliver much of the material help provided through our relief projects.
We see many more opportunities to establish other teams and have a special desire to settle a team in the most unreached region of Moldova, in the north-eastern part of the country.
