What is your ministry?

Together with my wife, we are currently helping in the Evangelical Poland movement, which serves as a collaboration platform among evangelical Christians in Poland. We strongly believe that there is a great potential for cooperation between churches in Poland for God's glory. My second area of ministry is my local church, which is growing and needs mature leadership. Apart from being an elder, I am also involved in leading men's groups.

When did you trust Christ?

I first trusted Christ in 1997 at a Christian student camp. My sister invited me, who had given her life to Jesus some years earlier. I fully understood the Gospel and my need for forgiveness and salvation at the camp. One evening I was asked a direct question about my future destiny - heaven or hell? This led to a deeper discussion, which ended with my prayer, asking God for forgiveness, and surrendering my life to Him.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

In 1997 I joined the Christian Student Association (ChSA), where I was an active volunteer for many years. Serving at ChSA was a great experience. I learned how to study God's word, led Bible studies, organized camps and events, and worked with people from different churches. In 2015 I became a member of the board of ChSA. I can indeed say that my mentors Ewa and Mirek Pieszka greatly influenced my life, especially in the early years of my walk with Christ.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

At the European Leadership Forum, I will meet leaders from different areas and share our experiences. Since I am involved in the Evangelical Poland movement, the Forum will surely help build relationships that will result in future cooperation. I have heard several people recommend the Forum as a great place to learn about leadership, which is at the heart of what I am doing.

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

Since 2014 I have been a board member at ChSA. I support the organization and help make strategic decisions. In 2016 I became an elder in my local church, where I continue to learn how to be responsible for other believers and our community. I have also been involved in many initiatives organized by the Men's Development Institute (IRM) and Cru (MT28) throughout my Christian walk. I have led several conferences, camps, and meetings.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

After almost 20 years of work at an insurance company, I am now transitioning to a new role in ministry. I am very excited about the vision of Evangelical Poland, and I would like to be part of it. Therefore, I treat my attendance at the Forum as a priority and the best place to learn and receive biblically-based inspiration for the future.
