What is your ministry?
Through CRU, I lead a team of women in urban ministry. Through my church I lead two Re:gen groups and a Re:Engage group for couples with my husband. I also individually mentor a number of women who are either CRU missionaries or are going through Re:gen. Right at this moment. I am significantly involved in helping Ukrainian refugees.
When did you trust Christ?
In 1981, during my freshman year at Warsaw University, I ran into Campus Crusade for Christ missionaries in their outreach at my university. Getting to know them better drew my attention to their faith that was very different from my superficial religiousness that I learned in my upbringing. They invited me to a Bible study and that is when I understood the Gospel and my need for it. I was challenged to believe it and I did. These missionaries provided the follow-up and training which led to my personal involvement in Christian ministry which continues on today.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
The first was when I was invited to a Bible Study and challenged to trust and follow Jesus. Then I was challenged to be involved in the lives of other students by sharing the Gospel with them and leading them in Bible studies based on materials provided by CRU. When I graduated I was challenged by some of these missionaries to join CRU as a missionary myself, which at that time was still undercover (1988). Two years after that, I went through a basic training and was sent to another city to help lead the Cru’s women's ministry there. When I got married and had children, the character of my ministry changed significantly. Later, when our children grew up, the time came when I was again able to commit much of my time to learning the Bible myself and teaching other women. One of the more significant impacts on my personal life came quite late in my life through the program Re:generation from Watermark Church in Dallas, TX. Much of my involvement today is helping other women through this program.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I would like to make some connections with other women who also lead women’s ministry programs.
What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?
I was the leader of a student discipleship group at my University in Warsaw. I have been a mission team member for CRU in Krakow, Katowice, and Warsaw Poland. I served as the associate leader of CRU mission team in Poznan, and the Poland leader of a CRU women mission team in Warsaw.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
Much of my time has been spent involved in ministry with many distinctly leadership roles. I want to continue to grow in ministry.
