The Baptist Church in Gotesti is pastored by Ruslan Tepiz and his wife Larisa, and started its activity in the summer of 1998 through the work of Pastor Mark McCormick. For several years it grew fast through youths and young families, however since then many had to migrate abroad with their families looking for jobs. This has brought great discouragement inside the church and at the moment there are 46 members.
As a church we work with teenagers, Day Camps, ministries involving children from social-vulnerable people, the Sunday School, our sisters, with the local social-vulnerable people, widows and other social projects in winter and where the Church members are actively involved.
1. Thermal insulation of the building. A need we have had for many years is the freezing in winter, sometimes we feel very cold on Sundays during the meetings.
2. The Dorca project – we want to prepare a wash room to do the laundry for children from our Day Care Centre and for the social-vulnerable people from our village.
