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 because their 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 mentoring and training youth leaders across the country to be fruitful in their ministries. He likes basketball, eating jelly beans (the more flavors the better) and using pop-culture references when sharing the gospel. Bia is a fund-raising coach for Josiah Venture missionaries and disciples young girls to become wonderful women of God. She is very proud of her Brazilian heritage and plays football, and she loves Chick-fil-A sauces. Darius and Bia have a young boy named Lucca and a little 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 Hateg, a small town in the Carpathian mountains.
