Church Life, Leadership, and Planting
Ministry Administration and Service
Dawid Werner is a regional coordinator for Josiah Venture.
When did you trust Christ?
I made my decision to trust and follow Jesus as my personal savior when I was 16-years-old while attending a Christian camp in Oćwieka. The preacher was sharing about God’s love and forgiveness. Broken by a Holy Spirit, I went to the restroom and locked the door. I was weeping, confessing my sins, asking God for forgiveness, and thanking Him for His love and sacrifice.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
After I made my decision to follow Jesus, I did not want to give up one particular sin for God. It was looking for value and acceptance in relationships with women. When I was 9 my mother has died. Through a relationship with four friends of mine who were sisters, God showed me who I am in Him. Those four sisters showed me how I should treat women in my life. Another defining moment was when I became a youth leader. It was a great motivation to me to get closer and closer to Jesus by serving others. I was equipped by our pastor. I became an elder. I grew in preaching and leading others spiritually. Five years ago I became a full time ministry worker. This was God’s confirmation of His calling for my life. Since then I have been growing in making disciples, equipping others, and leading and coordinating a team.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
At the Forum I will learn how to be a better disciple maker. I will be inspired by others to serve our God. I am also currently making a big decision about my future. I hope God will speak to me about that as well.
What is your ministry?
I am a regional coordinator for Josiah Venture. I help develop relationships between Josiah Venture Poland and local churches in the region. I support youth leaders by equipping and empowering them to be better disciple makers.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was formerly the coordinator of youth ministry in my local church.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
The main reason is the fruit we can see in our ministry. Every year we organize more camps, and we see more kids making decisions to trust and follow Jesus. Every year we see more believers getting involved in ministry. We see churches being refreshed and awakened by what happens with the youth in their communities. By God’s grace we can see the fruit of what we do.
