Emanuel Tundrea

Emanuel Țundrea grew up in communist Romania, but the faith of his parents had a huge impact on him. As a student he was involved in discipleship among students and during those 5 years his group(s) grew from 2 colleagues to more than 50. In 2001, he joined the staff at “Emanuel” University of Oradea (www.emanuel.ro), where he has lectured since. During this time he completed his PhD in software engineering at the University of Nice, France. Meanwhile, he continued to be involved in discipleship, especially among students and young families, and in 2008 he was ordained as pastor of “Emanuel” Baptist Church of Timisoara (just another naming coincidence). He also finished his Master in Pastoral Theology in June 2011 at Oradea. Both his involvement in academics and in the church aim to evangelize and mature disciples for Christ. He is married to Nadia and has three boys: Nathanael 10, Titus 6 and Nahum 2.
