Ministry Partners

Missio International (formerly USAffairs) was founded in 1993 and exists to support and representin the U.S Missio Link International (MLI) and other qualified Romanian ministries. Through a variety of services and a small army of individuals, churches, and foundations across the United States, MissioInternational is pleased to create, cultivate, and coordinate resources on behalf of our ministry-partners in Romania.

What began as a friendship soon after the Revolution between Alec Woodhull (Rockford, TN) and Eugen Groza (Timisoara, Romania) quickly grew into an international ministry purposed to facilitate the spiritual and material rebirth of post-communist Romania.

From its inception, Missio International has enjoyed a distinctly relational ministry. Missio International is evangelical in its mission orientation and ecumenical in its commitment to work across denominational boundaries. Missio International works with faith-based individuals, church, and para-church interests as well as foundations and resource organizations throughout the United States and Romania

While over the years this collaborative effort has served to link hundreds of churches and thousands of people, the emphasis has and will always remain on the one-to-one fostering of authentic, kingdom-oriented friendships that can grow organically in the grace and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you, your church, business, ministry, school, or family wish to find out more about MLI and Missio International’s facilitative role in Romania, please access: www.missiointernational.org or contact us today at missio.atlanta@gmail.com or 770-953-3325.
