The Bucur Family
Cornel and Karen Bucur began ministering in Eastern Europe as full-time missionaries in the early 90’s. As a young couple, God called them to take the gospel to Romania, a country with a history of revolution and a critical need for spiritual revolution. Cornel and Karen met at Moody Bible Institute in 1987 while completing their undergraduate degrees. They graduated from Moody in 1990 and went on to complete their graduate degrees from Wheaton College in 1992. They have been blessed with four children, Philip, Victoria, Benjamin & Alexandra.

The Pavel Family
Hi, I am Doru Pavel. Together my family and I work together in Oradea, Romania to fill the gap of youth mentoring at orphanages so that transitioning youth have a chance of being strong, well-rounded, successful, and accomplished adults . We partner with local organisations to meet the spiritual needs of children that would otherwise go neglected from a lack of a parental figure in their lives.
We are a family that is following Mark 9:36-37 call to welcome the youth to the ways of Christ, fostering Christian growth and discipleship. Our desire is to develop leaders with character, from among the youth of Romania that would be fully equipped to lead and disciple current and future generations in their country. We are currently living in Romania fulfilling full time missions work at an orphanage, gypsy villages and churches in our area.
The focus and purpose in Committed to Youth is:
To reveal, teach, demonstrate and instill the eternal perspective
To explain how hope in Jesus and in eternity brings hope, freedom, life and joy.
To bring people into a life of worship and glorify Jesus.
Join the Pavel family in their effort to help bring healing and hope to Romania’s orphaned and needy children.
