What is your ministry?
I am the full-time pastor of a local Baptist church in a small town in Central Poland. I transitioned into this role after spending 20 years as a youth worker in Polish Protestant churches. I am also working on a master’s degree in theology.
When did you trust Christ?
I grew up in a Christian home, so I knew about Christianity early. I decided to repent and follow Jesus when I was 16 during a special evangelism service in my home church. After that, I felt convicted and knew I wanted to follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
When I was 18 years old, I started to work as a youth worker and youth helper. As a counselor, I also attended Christian camps, youth conferences, and retreats. As a result, I have met several influential people who have encouraged me and shaped my understanding of faith.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
Attending the Forum has been very refreshing and fulfilling for me. I have received excellent teaching and new ideas for my ministry. I have received wisdom and knowledge and have been encouraged and empowered to do what God has called me to do.
What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?
I started to lead when I was 18 years old. First, I was a youth leader in my home church. After that, my pastor suggested that I study at a theological seminary. So I did. Then I started my pastoral training in Torun, but I could not continue and had to find a full-time job for financial reasons. In 2007, I was presented with another pastoral opportunity in another city, so I moved and started my pastoral training again. After three years of training, I moved to another town to start a youth pastor job. That job lasted for two years. Finally, in January 2013, I moved to Łódź for my most recent job as a youth pastor.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I believe I have a lot to learn and need more training and study. I am grateful for any additional training because it will help me improve my ministry and work as a new pastor.
