God called Francisco & Martita Berrios from their homeland of El Salvador to serve Him in Romania in 2001. Their ministry in Romania is an extension of the ministry they had in their sending church, Miramonte Baptist, where Francisco was Missions Pastor since 1997.
Francisco and Martita are engaged in evangelism, developing small groups, teaching and preaching in support of the Hope Baptist Church ministry in Brasov. They also serve with several churches in the community through preaching, counseling, pastoring, and coaching. Francisco facilitates for the Consortium of pastors from three evangelical denominations in Brasov; the Pastor has defined their purpose as follows:
The purposes of the common ground of collaboration between churches within the Evangelical Alliance in Brasov and its surroundings are building relationships between churches, building intentional personal relationships between leaders of the churches, and to evangelize Brasov and its surroundings.
Martita also works in women’s ministry and both lead in couples ministry, providing discipleship and counseling.
Her ministry as Bible Counselor has developed in the most recent years by word of mouth from those who have been in counseling with her, crossing even denominational lines in the community and also there are non believers that have been referred to her.
Francisco and Martita both graduated from the Miramonte Theological Seminary and have the experience and training for Biblical Counseling.
They have two children, Keren, who went to be with the Lord in August 2007, at the age of 21, and Gerson, who is now 26 years old.
