The Council for East European Theological Education (CEETE)
has announced programs for its Academic Leadership Forums on the
- "Relations with Sponsors," 13-16 September 2001, Haus Edelweiss, Austria
"Leaders of Eastern and Central European schools do not understand the
mentality of Western sponsors and do not completely understand the
information that these sponsors expect from them in order to maintain
long-term relations. At the same time these leaders of schools also
have difficulty distinguishing between the different approaches of
sponsors from Western Europe and from North America." The program may
be repeated at the biannual EAAA meeting in October 2001.
- "Faculty Leadership and Organization," March 2002, possibly at the
International Baptist Theological Seminary, Prague, Czech Republic

ways of more effectively organizing the work of teachers in theological
schools, the problem of teachers' salaries, and the creative potential
and strengthening of national faculty."
"Spiritual Formation of Students," September 2002, Haus Edelweiss, Austria
"This meeting will discuss spiritual formation as a component of an
academic program and the role of the teacher and local churches in the
spiritual formation of students."

assistance of its coordinator, Dr. Mark Young, Dallas Theological
Seminary, Dallas, TX.

According to Dorin Dobrincu, research fellow of the Iasi History Institute of the Romanian Academy, little of the history of Evangelical Christians in Romania
has been written because of the lack of academic interest in the
subject, persecution of Evangelicals by the state and by the Orthodox
Church, and the resulting lack of academic training among Evangelicals.
Dobrincu plans to write such a history that "would contain the
beginnings of Evangelical denominations, the integration of
Evangelicals in the Romanian context, and the impact of Evangelicals in
Romania. One of the main tasks of the investigation would be the
relation between state and church, especially how the state viewed
Evangelicals, knowing that the state religion, Orthodoxy, and Romanian
leaders had a close relationship, which often burst into persecutions
against small denominations." Danut Manastireanu, World Vision
International, considers Dobrincu "probably at this time the only
Evangelical academic historian in Romania." To inquire about the
project contact Professor Dobrincu at the Iasi History Institute of the
Romanian Academy, Str. Lascar Catargi, nr. 15, Iasi-6600, Romania; tel:
