What is your ministry?
I serve as worship team leader and preacher in our community churches and sometimes in other churches. This year I took the lead in our discipleship group. In addition, since the pandemic started and we started online streaming, I have been helping the technology team.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a Christian in the spring of 1991. In Lithuania, there was a huge national and spiritual revival at that time. I was a young man searching for the meaning of life. My friend invited me to a meeting where the Gospel was preached. That evening, at the end of the session, I prayed and gave my heart to Jesus.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
It was a remarkable change. I decided to follow Christ and get to know Him as much as possible. I left my old life and went to Vilnius to study in a Bible school. Immediately I joined the church and ministry. The church has grown exponentially, and we have experienced a great revival.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I attended the Forum in 2018, and I want to return to gain a deeper biblical understanding of the local church's mission.
What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?
I was an assistant evangelistic group leader. First, we traveled around the Lithuanian towns, preaching the Gospel in the streets, prisons, and hospitals. Then, for several years I was a leader of a home group.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
In the few years since our leaders started visiting the Forum, I have seen a lot of positive changes.
The process of church renewal has begun. Discipleship programs and groups are growing. The Pastoral team is e becoming more and more Gospel shaped. Also, people in the church have said that they see growth in the leaders that have attended the Forum
