Adam Cenian is a Physicist in Poland and a member of the Polish National Academy of Science.
When did you trust Christ?
I trusted Christ over 30 years ago during an evangelistic meeting at a local church. I understood that, although a sinner, I could be forgiven, and that the strength to persevere in faith did not depend on me.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
One year after accepting Jesus Christ, I attended a youth conference in Warsaw. I realized during my time there that I should be involved in Christian ministry. I later attended camps with IFES in Poland and England, where I learned how to lead evangelistic Bible studies. I have continued to lead such studies since that time.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I would like to express my gratitude to those who enabled me to take part in this excellent European Leadership Forum! I admire the content of the Forum, particularly the Scientific Network of which I am a part. Several years ago at the Forum I received encouragement to start the ministry I am now involved in. Since then I have received additional spiritual support and refreshment. Some of the speakers I have met at the Forum have helped us in our ministry in Poland, and we continue to invite such speakers to our area for strategic work for the Gospel. The meetings have helped me to recognize the extent of the work which has been done in my field. I hope that in the future I will be able to contribute even more to the field of science for the sake of the Polish people. We do not yet have many publications available in our language. I hope to be involved in translating and writing new books for our people.
What is your ministry?
I am a scientist by profession, but have been actively involved in church leadership roles since I became a Christian 30 years ago. I have led evangelistic camps, served as a pastor, and have been treasurer for the National Board of Baptist Churches in Poland. I am leading Hevelius Forum for Dialog between Science and Religion in Gdansk. We have Bible studies in our Institute and we organize lectures for those interested in scientific apologetic, I lecture at universities and Christian conferences. I provide material for Christian television in Poland.
