In 2005, from other areas of North America a few Romanian families moved to the San Antonio, Texas area inclusive of the Negru, Butuza, Stoian, and Vesa families. In 2006 other families moved to San Antonio to a growing Romanian Pentecostal community inclusive of the Davis, Hotea, Dehelean, Onofrei, Dan Negru and others.
These groups of families began to gather together to to have prayer and worship services together with other Romanian families from the Baptist church community. On September 17, 2006 in the home of Dan Negru the first gathering of these families became a reality and they became the founding members of Bethany “Betania” Church.
