TMFC Impacts the Business Community in Romania

By Jeremy Leaman

Ten Million for Christ has been committed to creating Kingdom impact in the business world of Romania since it’s inception. This March, TMFC’s Business Leadership Ministry Team of Donna Shuler, Gerry Blitz, and Jeremy Leaman joined forces with Ten Million for Christ’s local leadership teams and a number of guest speakers to do just that as TMFC hosted two business conferences.

The first business conference was hosted in the beautiful city of Hateg where Mircea Dumulesc and Jeremy served as keynote speakers and Donna Shuler joined them and some other local business leaders in a wide-offering of workshops. Approximately 40 people participated in the event which in addition to the plenary sessions and workshops also included networking time for the participants, lunch, and a panel discussion to wrap up the day. One of the highlights of the event was welcoming Hateg’s mayor for the morning plenary session. He had hosted a TMFC team at city hall last March and it was great to have him join us in return!  The business community in Hateg is growing and TMFC’s event is helping them grow together!

After the event in Hateg and a fruitful week of deepening relationships with business owners and pastors, investing into TMFC’s local leadership teams and the 24/7 team, a second business conference was hosted in Galati, Romania. This event was hosted at Emanuel Church, one of TMFC’s partner churches, where approximately 90 people participated in an inspirational event highlighted by keynote speakers Daniel Lar and Adrian Asoltanie.

Daniel Lar leads an IT firm of 400+ people and also helped start one of the popular nationwide food franchises, “Salad Box.” He spoke on “Creating a Healthy Organizational Culture” which was very well received by the participants. Adrian Asoltanie is becoming Romania’s Dave Ramsey and is a highly sought after speaker and radio show host. He spoke on “Smart Money in Crazy Times” and brought a plethora of practical financial advice delivered with wit and humor.

One participant shared with a local TMFC leader that he attends a number of business events throughout the year where they charge a lot of money to participate. Significantly, he commented, “Your event was top-notch and better than many I have been at!” TMFC’s Galati team was also excited when one of the participants at the event showed up at church the next day with his wife and three children!

Join us in praying for the business communities in both Hateg and Galati as TMFC endeavors to inspire Christian business owners towards Kingdom business principles and in the process, invite many additional business leaders into relationship with Christ!
