What is your ministry?

I am a church planter in the small town of Revuca, in the heart of Slovakia. I have been serving here for the last three years. I am part of a team of 20.

When did you trust Christ?

I became a Christian fifteen years ago. I was brought to my knees by listening to the words of Leonard Ravenhill; my eyes were open to my need for the Savior. Since that moment, I have been following the Lord.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

I have been significantly impacted by reading about the Puritans and the biographies of great Christians who lived in the past. Their passion for holiness stirs me to this day. I have also translated the autobiography of George Muller into Slovak, which taught me much about how to pray. In addition, my faith has grown by listening to online debates by William L. Craig and by listening to sermons from pastors such as Paul Washer and John Piper. I am so grateful to God for these men He uses to build His church and His people.

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

I was a leader of a Christian youth group in the Baptist church. I have also been a counselor in Christian camps in Australia, where I spent 11 months in 2007. I am a student, but I am actively part of evangelical leadership in Slovakia. I am a potential leader in the church in Slovakia.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

Because I am passionate about the study of Scripture, I want to be used by God to build up his people and lead them through my example into the path of holiness. Therefore, I am confident that I can be better equipped for ministry by attending the Forum and accessing all its resources.
