Paul and Tanya Gericke
“Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
The Gerickes have been serving at Central Baptist Church in Edmonton, AB where Paul has been on staff in Worship Ministries. Over the past years, Paul has been a part of numerous short term mission trips to Romania, and has built a relationship with the pastors and leaders. God has sovereignly moved in his life to bring him and Tanya to this point of decision to become missionaries in this setting.
About ten years ago, some of our NAB churches and donors contributed toward the purchase of property with the vision of establishing a camp ministry. Now Paul and Tanya will go to develop facilities and to establish a camping ministry. The facility will also provide a setting conducive to leadership development, both by giving experience to emerging camp leaders, and by providing a setting to host formal training events.
It is our hope to see Paul and Tanya in Romania by the fall of 2014. In these coming months, the Gerickes will be gathering a base of support by communicating this calling and ministry with churches and friends. I would encourage you to meet Paul and Tanya, to hear their compelling testimony of God’s calling and preparation, and to consider how you might become part of this new NAB mission field.
