About Us


The late Dave Petrescue inspired our organizationalPastor-Dave-Petrescue-09
vision.  Pastor Dave was the Senior Pastor of our home church, Maadi Community Church. The Lord gave Pastor Dave a vision of fiery foxes (Judges 15:4-5) for our church members. He wanted to see people’s lives changing to be on fire for Christ by the Holy Spirit, to become believers passionate about evangelism, to witness Christ boldly, and for not-yet Christians to be born-again and become active disciples. We desire to carry on this vision and inspire those who we equip and train.

Our Vision:

“To rekindle the spiritual passion among churches and believers and share the Gospel with unreached ethnic groups living in Europe.”

Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 NLT)

Our Mission:

  • Develop active Cell Ministries in local churches across eastern European countries
  • To provide an atmosphere conducive to developing a deeper relationship with God
  • To train and equip local and foreign committed Christians and churches to evangelize and disciple others in their communities
  • To proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to unreached ethnic groups living in Europe
  • To plant churches where none exist
  • To broadcast Arabic Christian programming to eastern Europe through radio and to the rest of the world’s Arabic speakers via satellite and internet
  • To establish a Christian Training and Conference Center that provides lodging for short-term teams and extensive training for long-termers.

How can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?

(Romans 10:14-15a NLT)

Our Values:

Equipping – Discipling – Evangelizing

Who are we?

Eastern Europe Gateway is a registered non-profit and nondenominational Christian organization located in Romania with potential to extend in other eastern European countries. EEG was founded in June 2006 and officially registered in June 2010.  We have multicultural and interdenominational committed Christians serving on our board and serving as team members in the field.

Why Eastern Europe?

Romania’s location in eastern Europe provides easy access to many countries in this part of the world. Many of those countries were under Communist authority. The churches suffered from spiritual stagnation and decline. God has called us to stand in the gap and help to strengthen the local churches in these countries that suffer from a high percentage of atheism and secularism. We want to reach the citizens from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds and bring them into the freedom found only in Christ.
