An excellent high school prof and a Taekwondo Blackbelt instructor, Pastor Alexandru has a perfect platform for sharing the gospel. Whatever he does for the Lord, he does it “with class.” Because of the quality of his work, God has given him favor with the school principal, which is of key importance.

Alexandru is member of a very large and highly respected Christian Taekwondo association. Several of the blackbelt instructors are national champions, some are world-class champions. There is one fundamental difference between this Taekwondo club and the others: instead of teaching students the zen philosophy, which is typically taught along with all of the martial arts, these trainers teach Christian principles. In fact, all the blackbelt instructors in this club are trained and certified to use the Bible studies of Kay Arthor’s Precepts Ministries International. Through this creative strategy, many of the Taekwondo students come to know Jesus as their personal Savior.

Many (if not all) of these blackbelt Taekwondo instructors, like Alexandru Curbet, are pastors who are evangelizing and starting new churches. This strategy has proven itself to be effective. They also use the Precepts teaching materials in their churches to train Church members, youth and even the children.

Another method that Alexandru and Valentina use for reaching more people with the gospel is through English classes.  Valentina is an excellent English teacher. Besides being a mother to two beautiful children, she also teaches English privately throughout the year.  In the summer, they organize English camps.

Praise International is proud to sponsor Pastor Alexandru and Valentina Curbet. Please pray for them, their family, their outreach to people in the community and the discipleship training of the members of their Church.  Thank you.
