The Inside Out Initiative

Church Partnership

The leadership team of Missio International and Missio Link International has enjoyed connecting Christian congregations in Romania and America since 1994.

These international partnerships involve worship, discipleship, missional engagements, multi-generational friendships, material and spiritual blessings, and a mutual love that transcends culture, advances God’s kingdom, and embodies Christian unity.

While God’s Gospel is constant, the form and function of these partnerships has adjusted with changes and challenges experienced in Romania and America over the past 25+ years.

Today we are observing an emerging intentionality among Romanian and American churches, a complimentary focus that includes a commitment to spiritual formation and an appreciation for community transformation.

Pastor Petru Bulica

We call the initiative INSIDE OUT!

And we are inviting you to explore what such an international partnership might look like for your congregation.

We believe that healthy churches honor God by calibrating themselves to look inward and outward.
