Jeff and Lauren met while attending college in the US. After college, Jeff spent a year serving various churches in Timișoara, Romania, and saw that young adults there needed discipleship and local Christian leaders needed encouragement. When Jeff returned to the US, he and Lauren got married and moved to Los Angeles. There, Jeff attended seminary, receiving training in Intercultural Studies in order to be equipped for ministry in Romania. After seminary, and with the support of Adventures in Missions, the Cardells moved to Timisoara, where they’ve joined a church, entered into community, and begun forging intentional relationships with those around them. You can learn more by visiting the Cardells’ blog.
The Cardells earnestly desire to encourage local Christian leaders, disciple young adults, foster unity among churches, and equip Romanians to live Christ-centered lives within their communities. Romanian culture is a relational culture, and so the Cardells seek to minister in a relational way. In all of this, Jeff and Lauren want to be faithful and grow in intimacy with Jesus.
You can partner financially with Jeff and Lauren in their missions work in Romania through their webpage.
