Grace Church of DuPage got to know Pastor Ilie in 2000 when a music outreach team from our church ministered at an evangelistic service in their church in Romania. Shortly afterward we began supporting him, allowing him to quit his factory job and devote full time to pastoral ministry.

Being a Romanian Gypsy, God has granted Pastor Nadaban an effective ministry within the Gypsy population in Arad.   Pregeteria Baptist Church has seen 40 people come to Christ and be baptized in the past 15 years;  there are now 35 members and 25 additional regular attendees.

  • We received an email last week informing us that Pastor Nadaban has had a heart attack. He is in stable condition in the hospital. Doctors are recommending he have a surgery to place three cardiac stents. His family and church are asking for our prayers, specifically for surgery costs and his safe recovery.
  • Please also be praying for Pregeteria Baptist Church that they would be a bold and faithful witness to their community. (Acts 28:31)
  • That the congregation would stay faithful to the truth of God's word. That they would love and encourage one another well as brothers and sisters in Christ. (Colossians 3:12-17)
