What is your ministry?

I regularly preach at my local church in Budapest. The senior pastor and I train laypersons for church ministry. I occasionally teach in the Szünergosz Baptist Bible School. In addition, I organize activities for the young adults in our church. I am also involved in a small group, and we want to plant a church soon.

When did you trust Christ?

I made my decision to follow Jesus in 1993 when I was 13-years-old. There was an outreach week in our village organized by the local Baptist church. One evening the preacher talked about the opportunities we had for our lives and about the two possible end stations for our lives: Heaven or Hell. I didn’t want to go to Hell, I wanted to go to Heaven, and I wanted to sleep at night without being afraid. So that night, I decided to follow Jesus.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

We had an excellent biblical preacher in my church. His preaching connected to what I was experiencing in real life. He was a good teacher and was easy to understand.

I was studying at a technical university as an electrical engineer. During this time, God called me to be a pastor. I didn’t feel that I could speak well enough to be a pastor, but I wanted to obey God. So I graduated from the university, and afterward, I went to study at the Baptist seminary to become a pastor.

After my seminary studies, I was a pastor at Gödöllő Baptist Church for four years. I have since become a bi-vocational person: I am both a pastor and an engineer. I understood that God needs Christians to be involved in secular careers just like he needs them to be in ministry.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

I want to attend the Forum to learn how to reach more educated people better to become a better preacher.

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

I was the leader of the local MEKDSZ (IFES) at the University of Győr for two years. I was the chief of the student council at the Baptist Theological Academy for two years. I was the senior pastor of Gödöllő Baptist Church for four years until 2013.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I want to improve my Bible teaching and preaching skills. And I want to be a better leader.
