Darius & Bia Bocsa
Darius (Romanian) met his wife Bia (Brazilian) at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Both had a desire and passion to serve the Lord and to make the name of Jesus known. Together, they decided to move to Romania and work with young people. Darius and Bia's passion is to communicate the gospel to Romanian youth in such a way that they will understand it, live by it daily, and ultimately pass it on to others. Darius is the director of Josiah Venture's summer ministries in Romania and is helping and training youth leaders across the country to be fruitful in their ministries yearlong. He likes all types of sports (basketball the most) and using pop-culture references when sharing the gospel. Bia is the intern coordinator for Josiah Venture in Romania and coaches other missionaries in their fund-raising endeavors. She is very proud of her Brazilian heritage and loves Chick-fil-A sauces. Darius and Bia have a young boy named Lucca and an infant girl named Lara.
As a couple, they spend most of their time discipling young people with the hope of seeing a new generation of Jesus-loving leaders emerge. Darius and Bia are currently living in Cluj-Napoca, a vibrant college city filled with young people ready to hear the Gospel.
