What is your ministry?

I am the leader of a youth organisation called Youth Builder. This is a support and backstage ministry for all the youth leaders in Hungary. We exist to equip youth leaders, train them, and support them. I also serve in a church plant in Diósd, where I serve as a local pastor. In addition, I was recently appointed the leader of the youth department for the Hungarian Reformed Church.

When did you trust Christ?

I grew up in a Christian family, but I did not follow Jesus until 2010. When I was young, I was looking to find myself. I tried joining some different groups of people, but all of them were mistakes. Finally, one of my friends introduced me to a good Evangelical church. I still had a lot of questions, and I couldn’t give my life to Christ. But after a year, He called me. I prayed for a long time. I asked for forgiveness for my sins, and He called me personally. Immediately, my life changed. I started to serve in my youth group as well.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

The defining moment for me was when He called me to serve Him as a pastor. I was sure it was not for me. After a year of resisting Him, finally, I fasted for five days. On the last day of my fasting, I felt a deep calm and peace in my heart. It was then that I knew He would be with me and next to me during my studies and that being a pastor was His will for me. I am pleased about this because I can be sure about my service.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

The Forum is the best conference in Europe for an evangelical Christian. I would like to return because the main sessions, the level of the workshops, the quality of the lectures, and the networking possibilities are very inspiring and a big blessing for a whole year.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I have been the primary coordinator of the most prominent meeting for Hungarian youth leaders. The meeting is a national youth ministry weekend, where more than 600 youth leaders attend from 11 denominations. We organise this meeting every year in cooperation with Baptist, Reformed, Lutheran, and Pentecostal leaders. We started to mentor other leaders and started workshops and seminars for theological students at the Faculty of Theology in Budapest.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I want to learn more and hear the experiences of people in other nations. I have a passion for this ministry. I love to serve. It is not just a job for me. God called me to do this, and I enjoy it very much. I want to benefit the people of Hungary. I want to be a good pastor for God.
