Christian Ministry—Pastoring/Church Planting
Church Life, Leadership, and Planting
Pastoring and/or Bible Teaching
Jurgita Kucinskiene is the pastor of a church in Lithuania.
When did you trust Christ?
I was born in a Roman Catholic family. On January 4, 1992, I went to a newly founded church in my city. During the prayer time that day I experienced the closeness of Jesus. I prayed to be reborn and repented of my sins. It was a radical conversion. My life started to change. Since then I have followed Jesus.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
One of the defining moments in my life was during a difficult time in my marriage. During that time I did not let go of the hand of Jesus. I was forced to seek answers, to pray, to repent, and thus to grow in Christ.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
The Forum will provide me with tools to help broken families. It will help me to connect with other believers from across Europe.
What is your ministry?
I am a pastor. I preach not only in the local church, but also in other Lithuanian cities. I advise people in the church, organize activities, and minister in the church and outside it.
What are your past leadership roles?
For as far back as I can remember, I have always been willing to take on responsibility. In 2005 I was appointed to the leadership team of the local church in which I was reborn. In 2012 I was ordained as a pastor at the same church. For a year I led a home for disabled adults.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I want to become a more effective minister. I believe the Forum can help me to do that.
