Alpinis Leadership Center Matching Grant 2021

Welcome to the Alpinis Leadership Center

In 2001, thirty acres of property was purchased on a mountaintop near the city of Sibiu, Romania. It was appropriately named “Alpinis” because of the majestic views and pristine mountain setting. This was the beginning of a dream for Missio Link International (MLI) to one day develop a unique place for training and equipping people to live out their faith in every aspect of life.

After 10 years of effective programming using a 3 bedroom Villa adjacent to the property, the larger dream began to become reality. In 2013, two MI Board members, Bill and Bonnie Kichner pledged one million dollars toward the construction of a new venue. Sadly, just before the project was completely designed, Bill and Bonnie went to be with our Lord. The Kinschner Family Foundation followed the dream, and in 2018 construction on the Alpinis venue began! Fast forward to September 2021; through the incredible support and sacrificial giving of our MI Board and many dear friends of MLI, we have raised an additional $900,000! Emil and his team are putting the final touches on the construction of this exciting new chapter for MLI!

The Alpinis Leadership Center will soon be opening our doors for a new season of camps, retreats, and training conferences. We are also initiating new ways of reaching leaders in the business, civic and corporate sectors all around Romania. We hope to provide Certificate and Corporate Leadership programs through a Christian world view.

Ultimately, this image of leadership, as expressed through the lens of Christianity, is the formation of the image of Christ in the life of an individual, imitating Christ in servant leadership.” Emil Toader, Missio Link International President

We invite you to become a part of a cornerstone project of MLI, the Alpinis Leadership Center.

Please consider joining us as a prayer partner, a donor, an investor, and or a program contributor. To help us finish and furnish Alpinis, we are offering a matching campaign to get Emil over the finish line!

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. ~ Acts 2:17

Because of Christ,
