Christian Ministry – Other
Youth Ministry Leaders
Children and/or Youth
Daniel Jurco is a regional youth leader in the Czech Republic.
When did you trust Christ?
I gave my life to Jesus when I was 12. I couldn’t sleep at night because I was afraid I or a loved one would not wake up in the morning. I shared this with my mother, we prayed, and she led me to Christ.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
My father is a pastor, so serving in the church was always a part of my life and I couldn’t imagine living without it. At one point, I started questioning why I was doing this even though I served on a youth group team. After some time, the youth leader stepped down and his position needed to be filled. That was my time to start growing and I became the main youth group leader. The ministry pushes me to grow and learn.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
Through the European Leadership Forum, I hope to learn something new, to grow in Jesus, to be inspired by other believers who have known the Lord longer, and to develop the skills I need to do His will better.
What is your ministry?
I lead the youth group in my local church. This is a group of high school students, from about age 15-19. We are trying to be a mission-oriented youth group. We are organizing English camps, outreach weekend retreats, and outreach Friday evenings.
What are your past leadership roles?
I have been a youth group leader for the past three years. Prior to being the leader, I was part of the youth leadership team for several years. I recently started a position as Regional Youth Leader for my church denomination.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I’m hungry! I want to serve the best I can, so I need information on how to be a better leader.
