Dr. Paul Negrut is one of the most famous men in Europe. He is one of the best known preachers in the world. He is the pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Oradea and the Chancellor of Emmanuel Baptist University. Dr. Negrut weathered the days of Communism in Romania and rose to great influence when the Iron Curtain came down. He was offered a job with the new Democratic government in a free Romania, but turned it down believing that serving the Lord was a higher calling. I agreee completely. Emmanuel University and the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Oradea are known throughout Europe. Emmanuel is the largest Evangelical church in Europe. The university trains people from all over Romania and many other parts of the world. They teach a variety of subjects in a passionately Christian environment. Stan Ray, one of our members who has served there in various missions endeavors, has recently involved Baylor University in partnering with them to develop an agricultural program. We have made numerous trips to Romania to share the gospel in various parts of the country. In recent years these trips have been led by Greg Knight. In every case, graduates of Emmanuel have played a key role in assisting us to serve within the country. Several of our members have lectured at Emmanuel. I have been privileged to preach at the Emmanuel Baptist Church on two occasions. I also have lectured at the university. Our choir has sung at the church, the university, and in numerous churches around Oradea. So as you can see our contact with Romania and Emmanuel is extensive. Paul is like family to many of us.
