The Open Bible work began as an outreach of Voice for Christ Open Bible Church in Clayton, Ohio, when Karen Rose was sent as a missionary. She was granted Harvestime appointment in May 1992. Karen’s ministry included outreaches in orphanages and a prison ministry, as well as distributing humanitarian aid. Karen resigned as an Open Bible missionary in November 2004.

George Ratiu established a church in Gherla and a beautiful building was built for the glory of the Lord. There are 4 Open Bible churches with a total of 100 members, and 3 credentialed ministers. The members of the Gherla church continue to reach out to nearby communities. INSTE Level One has been translated into Romanian and the INSTE group at the Gherla church has six students.

Hosu Simion is the field director.
