Participants Answers
What is your ministry?

I am part of the Hungarian Forum Steering Committee and have led the Bible Interpretation Network since the beginning. I am part of the leadership team of Langham Hungary, leading a local preaching club. I am preaching in my church regularly (approximately once a month). I teach coaching and mentoring at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Budapest, and I also teach Hermeneutics at an independent Bible school. I preach at conferences and church camps and work with leaders in different denominations.

When did you trust Christ?

I grew up in a Christian family, attending Sunday school, youth group, and high school student ministry. I gave my life to Christ at a young age. During high school, an interdenominational student group was formed and later turned into the student mission at the local university; I was involved in this work from the time I was 17 all through my university years. As I became more committed to evangelism at my university, I had to sort out a lot of areas in my life and just let God take control. Through my involvement in student ministry, I learned a lot and experienced what it means to find God’s best intention with my life.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

Growing up in a Christian home, I could look to my parents as examples of how to live a godly life. However, it was a question that I would continually struggle with throughout my Christian walk. Before joining IFES's year team in London, I was faced with whether I believed due to a friendly conversation with a Jehovah's Witness. While I didn't completely throw out my faith, I searched hard to find good reasons for what I believed. Ironically, I was a missionary all during this time. However, God slowly re-convinced me of His power and presence. He used different conferences, books, and leaders in the British and Hungarian student movements.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

After last year's Forum, I was challenged and inspired in my quest for personal holiness and purity of the heart. The Forum has been a melting pot where everything that happened the previous year slowly started to get shaped. I have several significant decisions tied to specific Forums. The most recent being a relationship mended after 13 years. This has been a major breakthrough and opened up entirely new perspectives.

I look forward to returning to be spiritually refreshed and reflect on my journey.

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

I was a supervisory committee member for the Hungarian International Fellowship of Evangelical Studies (IFES).

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

My whole ministry has been a great response to the trust, invested interest, time, and resources I received from others.
