Take a Cross-Cultural Year to Work in Romania

By Ailisha O'Sullivan on October 22, 2015

Update: this position has now been filled. 

Serge is seeking an Administrative Assistant for its Cluj, Romania, team. The commitment is for 2-11 months. Most Serge commitments are three years or longer, making this a unique opportunity to serve cross-culturally with a shorter time commitment.


Serge’s Romania team is based in Cluj. Located in Transylvania, Cluj is the 2015 EU youth capital. Cluj has a resident population of approximately 300,000 (81.5% are ethnic Romanian and 16.4% are ethnic Hungarian). This culturally rich and diverse city is also home to 100,000 national and international students every year.


Working with local ministry partners, the Serge Cluj team seeks to serve the city through activities including international church planting, an English language university Bible study, and Kinship, a local discipleship course based on Serge’s Sonship. The team also partners with a local publishing house, a Montessori school, and a ministry to those struggling with addictions.


The team has identified a critical short-term need for an Administrative Assistant who would work closely with one of their local ministry partners, Rev. Levente Horváth, a minister in the Hungarian Reformed Church.



Responsibilities include supporting Rev. Horváth by:

  • publicizing the Kinship course offerings,
  • handling registration and organization for the twice yearly English version of Kinship,
  • editing short devotions or lectures (in English),
  • handling English language correspondence and maintaining a contact database,
  • assisting in hosting international guests.


Other responsibilities include participating in Serge team meetings, attending and supporting the international church and ‒ time permitting ‒ attending and supporting the English language university Bible study.
