This post is about the series of worship seminars we held in Cluj, Romania.Â It’s number three in the trilogy of reports wrapping up my missions trip to eastern Europe. See all the posts in my Balkans missions trip series here.
My 3 days in Cluj-Napoca marked the final leg of my 26 day assignment.
Cluj is a thriving college town with a youthful, optimistic energy. My good friends from SOZO, Nick and Carole Decean,Â organized the event with several other churches in the area. They invited me to speak and teach on biblical worship to train and equip their teams and ministries.
We held a series of seminars for three consecutive nights, 3 hours each night.
I introduced some new songs.
I mixed teaching with experiential worship, stories and songs that illustrated teaching points.
Attendance was very good, about 50 each night.Â
They wanted to keep it a small group for more interaction. There was plenty of group discussion with some very tough questions!
The issuesÂ brought up during Q&A inspired several ideas for articles.
The first being this series of posts on Character Guidelines for Worship Team Members:
- Biblical Character Necessary for Worship Leaders & Teams Pt.1
- Biblical Character Guidelines for Worship Leaders & Teams, Pt 2
Â Mentoring Next Gen Leaders
It was a joy to hangout and connect with several local leaders.
Staying at The Deceans
I had a great time staying with Nick and Carole Decean, their daughter Rachel and twin sons, Joshua and Nico.
We had a blast hanging out together.
The Deceans spoiled me with rest, wonderful Romanian food and hospitality.

The feedback on the event was fantastic.
A group of pastors have asked if I can return next year and present this teaching in a larger context in another city, so we’ll see.
I’m thankful for everything God allowed me to accomplish and experience. Thanks to everyone who prayed and supported my trip.
You can help send me on theÂ next mission trip Â to Sri Lanka, find out more.Â
Stay in the loop! :
