Christian Ministry—Pastoring/Church Planting
Bible Teachers and Preachers
Pastoring and/or Bible Teaching
Diana Vaskeliene is an assistant pastor and the leader of small group leaders.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a Christian in the autumn of 1991. One of my university friends started talking to me about Jesus. She brought me some books about the Christian faith and I started reading them. I also started reading the Bible and finally decided to give my heart to Jesus. I did that while praying at home. Then I began to attend the church The Word of Faith and a home group.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
I am happy I had good friends who were also my home group leaders. They impacted my faith most. Later I had to decide to stay in our church when our previous pastor was made redundant.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I hope to get more knowledge and practice in the field of pastoring and leadership. I need more training in mentoring, I need skills for that. I would like to have my own mentor
What is your ministry?
I am the assistant pastor in our church. I am mainly responsible for the home groups in our church. I am also a preacher. I am a member of the board of our church.
What are your past leadership roles?
First I was a teacher in the Bible school for children in our church. Then I was the leader of a home group. After that I became a leader for other leaders of several home groups.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I will do my best to invest my new knowledge and practice in other ministers and lay people in our church.
