What is your ministry?
I currently serve in the Poarta Cerului Pentecostal church from Timisoara. One of our church’s main focus is aimed towards ministering the youth. Hence the average age in our church is significantly lower than most churches in our city. The youth ministry gravitates around our weekly plenary sessions and continues to a more granular level as we serve within our smaller teams. We currently have about 150 active members in our youth department and (pre-COVID-19)about 400-500 weekly attendees at our public gathering. Being one of the first Romanian churches to bring our content online we’ve been blessed to have a significant reach and impact among the Romanian evangelical community.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I would like to gain more insight so that I might bring growth in this area to our youth department and the church in general, gain skills that I can share with my peers, learn how to implement this on a larger scale within our teams, and identify and grow new disciple-makers.
What is your leadership role?
I’m one of the leaders in the Youth Department of our church. I’m mainly involved in organizing our youth activities while also consulting with our main youth leader (not a youth pastor). My responsibilities are aimed towards ministering to our worship choir and a smaller team that serves smaller churches near Timisoara.
For both of these groups, I’m responsible for organizing our activities while also being there for them if anyone needs any closer spiritual help.
