Christian Ministry—Christian Organization
Education and/or Training
Justyna Wawrzyniak is a Bible teacher, lecturer at a Christian college, and the Vice President of a training organization called the Proca Foundation.
When did you trust Christ?
I was born in 1977 in a traditional Polish Catholic family. As a teenager, I was already looking for a deep and meaningful life. At the age of 15 I started dabbling in the occult and parapsychology. I started to take courses in clairvoyance. Then I met my spiritual father, who asked me questions about Jesus. He helped me search for answers. This ultimately led me to a lively and fruitful relationship with Jesus Christ based on love and trust. I was born again in 1994 after I gave my life to Jesus while walking in the woods.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
After I became a Christian I was rejected by my family. Then my father died. Later still I developed a chronic illness. All of these events made me turn to Jesus for comfort and strength.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I would love to gain new inspiration and ideas from other disciples makers.
What is your ministry?
I am Bible teacher. I am a lecturer at a Christian college. I conduct training workshops and lectures at Christian conferences. I am also the Vice President of an organization called the Proca Foundation. Proca’s Ministry primary focus is providing all kinds of assistance to ministers, elders, and church leaders in their ministry; coaching and encouraging Christian businesses in their struggles; and using workshops, coaching, and mentoring to reach into the community. We exist to serve Christian leaders and train them to use different tools to be more effective and to live their God-given purpose, so they can achieve their calling.
What are your past leadership roles?
For 10 years I was a teacher of Sunday school, and later, the director of the children’s ministry department in the biggest Pentecostal church in Poland. After getting married in 2003 I was sent on missions with a Christian organization that is now called Proem (it was known as Word of Life at that time). After a year and a half of service, my husband and I felt that God was calling us to a new place. In 2008, we founded organization that supports, develops, and appreciates Christian leaders in Poland. We conduct trainings and development opportunities for Christian leaders and church leaders in Poland.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I am teacher, trainer, and university lecturer. Each year I influence hundreds of others either individually through coaching and mentoring or through workshops and courses I teach at Christian universities.
