Michael and Denisa Foster are currently serving as church planters in the country of Romania and reside in the city of Oradea. The heart of their church (Koinonia 29) is to reach, teach and send the people of Oradea and Romania with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Michael and Denisa’s heart is to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples thus their ministry through the church plant in Romania has a very concise focus. That focus is to disciple, train and raise up indigenous young leaders equipping them to plant theologically sound missional communities and churches that will reach and transform the nation of Romania and beyond.

To date he has set foot on nineteen different countries teaching, speaking and equipping the Lord’s Saints, as well as, proclaiming the Gospel and demonstrating its implications through loving deeds to emerging generations, and plans to continue stepping on the soil of as many nations for the Gospel as Jesus allows him.
In 2014 after moving to Romanian to serve full-time, Michael met Denisa in March of that same year in Oradea at a REAL Ministries Mission’s Project informational meeting. The two of them unexpectedly hit it off and quickly began connecting with each other on a more personal level. After eight months of courting one another, in November of 2014 Michael and Denisa began an official relationship with one another, and were married in October of 2015.
Denisa is a Romanian native, who was born and raised in Oradea, Romania. In 2015 Denisa graduated from medical school, and is now currently in her residency in the field of Neonatology.

She is now fully vested in walking alongside Michael in both life and ministry and desires to see her city, her nation and the world become truly devoted disciples of Jesus.
