Newly appointed Missionaries to Romania
Camp Development at Camp Falcon Rock
Jason and Erin have been married since 2006 and have four children (Dani 12, Cristian 10, Olin 8 and Keli 6). The Bergman’s live in Edmonton Alberta where Jason works as an engineer and Erin is a stay-at-home-mom.
Jason first visited Romania as part of a construction team in 2017, where he developed a heart for the ministry at Camp Falcon Rock. Shortly after, Jason brought Erin along on a short trip to experience what was happening in Romania and quickly they felt God giving them His heart for what He was doing in the lives of the youth in Romania. 2018 presented the Bergman’s with an opportunity to serve together as a family for three months over the summer. Being on the ground as a family provided an opportunity to get their feet wet in terms of what village life and ministry in Romania would look like. Upon returning home the Bergman’s continued to pray into what the Lord had in store for their family.Jason’s Grandfather co-founded a Christian camp in Alberta where Jason spent many of his summers as a youth attending as a camper and serving as a volunteer maintenance worker. Over the years Jason served in many capacities such as counselor, dean, advisor and board member. Jason worked in construction for a number of years and then decided to attend University and graduated with a degree in Engineering. By looking at Jason’s camp ministry experience and his construction/engineering knowledge we see this opportunity as a great way to steward his gifts and abilities and believe that God has uniquely prepared Jason for this good work.
Erin also served at the same Christian camp in Alberta and had the opportunity to be a camper, counselor and dean several Leadership in Training camps. Erin has also been involved in Bible Study Fellowship for many years and has a strong passion for Christ’s followers to know and love God’s Word. Erin attended Alberta Bible College in Calgary and received a Certificate in Biblical Studies. God has given Erin a special place in her heart for Romania from her first visit there.
Upon returning home from their 3 month visit they offered open hands to the Lord in what He might have for them. God affirmed their sense of calling when a couple months later they were contacted by the Camp Falcon Rock team to consider serving in Romania longer term. God has also spoken through their kids and they have seen how He has prepared them to serve overseas as a family. Camp Falcon Rock desires to provide year round programming that will help develop young people in evangelism, discipleship, leadership and educational training. As the camp facilities are still being developed the ministry provides summer programs/year round rentals that are often filled to capacity thus the ministry also brings the camp programming directly into villages. Camp Falcon Rock seeks to love and empower Romanian, Hungarian and Gypsy children, teens and young adults for the purpose of emotional, social and spiritual growth.
We are excited to begin this journey and to link arms with the missionaries on the ground already, the local church in Romania and the church in North America. May we all come together as the body of Christ to build up the Kingdom for His glory. “Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11b
