Peacemaker to Visit

Posted July 2, 2024

Dumitru Roibu of Moldova will be visiting our presbytery as our peacemaker. He will arrive on Thursday, September 19 and depart on Wednesday, September 25. This will allow us to welcome Dumitru to our September Presbytery Meeting.

Dumitru is Executive President of YMCA Moldova. He has served as World YMCA Youth Empowerment assistant and YMCA Change Agent (a global leadership program), and participated in YES (Youth Engagement in Sports) and TTT (Training The Trainers) seminars.

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022, Dumitru has been involved in supporting Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war. To date, helping more than 14,000 refugees, YMCA Moldova has created more than 320 Digital Educational Centers.

Dumitru studied International Relations, has a master’s degree in Diplomatic Studies and is currently working on his PhD in Good Governance. He and his wife welcomed their first child in January. We look forward to his visit in September.

If your church is interested in having Dumitru join you for an event, please contact Joyce Hamilton at or 724-822-3494.
