She joined Innovista in 2019 and has led both ‘Mindshift’, a training programme for those in post-Soviet countries, and ‘Relevant’, a tool to help Moldovan churches use all their members to serve their communities and reach them for God. Maricela is married to Sergiu and they live with their five children in Chisinau, where they are both involved in leadership and a home group for their local church. Her desire is to see Moldovan church leaders empowered to support and equip others to build the kingdom of God across all spheres of society.
