Romanian-American Mission, Inc. (RAM) emerged from a local congregational ministry of the Buck Run Baptist Church, Frankfort, KY, when the Baptist Union of Romania urged pastor Bob Jackson to found an organization of individuals and churches in the U.S. that would help reach Romania for Christ. In the summer of 1996 RAM was officially established. In 1998, the Romanian RAM board of directors was formed, in order to plan the mission work in cooperation with the American board.
For a decade, RAM has been involved primarily in Romania and Moldova. Beginning in 2007, when Romania entered the European Union, God opened the door for RAM to minister in a number of Western European countries where several millions of displaced Romanians have relocated. RAM is currently serving in Romania, Moldova, Austria, Italy, Spain and United Kingdom.
While the majority of those involved with us are Baptists, RAM is an interdenominational mission organization that opens wide its arms to Great Commission Christians and churches regardless of denominational tradition.
Romanian-American Mission has its U.S. office located in the Central Baptist Church building in Decatur, Alabama. Pastor Rob Jackson serves as the president and pastor Billy Nale serves as the chairperson of the American board of directors. Pastor Cornel Boingeanu serves as the chairperson of the Romanian board, while pastor Adrian Barzu serves as the Executive Director of the Romanian board and Daniel Fodorean as the coordinator of Project Antioch (RAM’s ministry in Europe). http://www.ram-christian.org/
