Pictures With Churches


The pictures with Evangelical churches started from the E. Orthodox Reformation which you are about to see, are just a sample of the many churches of that denomination spread throughout Southeastern Romania.


Tudor Popescu the priest, before the Reformation

Tudor Popescu in his 70s, decades after he started the reformation . He became an Evangelical minister and founder of the Eastern Orthodox Reformation in Romania. It should be noticed that he did not intend to dissent, but his exclusion from the Eastern Orthodox Church of Romania led to the reformation within Eastern Orthodoxy.



Emil Constantinescu was the most trusted partner in ministry of Tudor Popescu. His story is not part of the essay yet, but it will be sometime in the future. Emil Constantinescu was born in Pucioasa, a beautiful, small town surrounded by hills in Dambovita county, southern Romania. His father was a priest. Emil was expected to become a priest as well, but he chose to major in classical languages. At the preaching of Tudor Popescu, he recieved the Lord. As a result, Emil’s father disowned him. Serban Constantinescu, Emil’s son, was one of the main ministers in the denomination later on.

Imn crestin cu versuri de Emil Constantinescu

Când drumul meu e-ntunecos

Când drumul meu e-ntunecos,

Lumina mea este Christos:

Cu El, stråbat calea voios.

Ce bun e El!

Când e furtunå-n jurul meu

Si ceru-i tot doar un nor greu,

Isus e påzitorul meu.

Ce bun e El!

Când sunt departe de cåmin

Si totu-n jur îmi e stråin,

Al meu dor prin Isus mi-alin.

Ce bune e El!

Când suflå recea-l mortii vânt,

Si pierd comori de pe påmânt,

Isus råmâne orisicând,

Ce bun e El.

Si ieri, si azi, si-n viitor

E-acelas scump Mâmtuitor:

Mereu îmi vine-n ajutor.

Ce bun e El

Transcris: Serban Constantinescu


The headquarters building and sanctuary of the Eastern Orthodox Reformed Church where Tudor Popescu lived and preached. The official name of the church is “The Romanian Evangelical Church”. It is located in Bucharest on 48 Carol Davila Street.  The building was constructed specifically for the new movement with funds mainly from Miss Ghica, a devoted Christian young lady who also was very rich.

  1. “…his exclusion from the Eastern Orthodox Church of Romania led to the reformation within Eastern Orthodoxy.”

    Do you have any idea how this sounds? “Being an outsider allowed him to do insider work.” Yes, brilliant stuff there.
