In Hungary and Romania we have begun two congregations. Our men there are preaching the gospel and laboring for a Spiritual awakening among the people in Hungary and Romania, areas formerly under Communist control. Rev. Douglas Schlegel serves as our Field Chairman. For decades, since the fall of the iron curtain in Eastern Europe, Westminster Biblical Missions has sought to reach those areas where communist regimes sought to snuff out the light. Today, the main focus of Westminster Biblical Missions in Eastern Europe is among the Hungarian-speaking people of Transylvania (northwest Romania). This is an area filled with churches but very little gospel preaching. Whether it is the effects of communism or the effects of theological compromise, the need is great and the opportunities vast. In Western Ukraine and in Russia, initial contacts have been made with believers who are laboring under difficult circumstances, but we have not been able to follow-up due to lack of funding. The missionaries on the field confront the self-satisfaction and carelessness that often also afflicts evangelistic labors in North America and Western Europe. Nevertheless, the promise of God remains: "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."



Reverend Doug Schlegel earned his B. D. from City Seminary of Sacramento, and was licensed to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ by the Western Classis, RCUS in 2010. He served as an elder at Covenant Reformed Church, Sacramento from 1992 until beginning full-time labors at Providence Reformed Church in Lodi, California in 2011. Doug married his high school sweetheart and faithful help-meet Cheryl in 1982 and they have four adult children. Doug's hobbies include reading history and rooting for his favorite baseball team. He currently lives in Sacramento. In order to accomplish our goals, we must have your prayers and we need your financial support. Will you help us? Can we depend upon you.
