What is your ministry?
I am the leader of the youth ministry at our local church, but this ministry extends to youth from other parts of the country through various events and camps. I teach at a youth leaders’ training school where I lead and help youth leaders from all over Slovakia to be more effective in their local ministries. I also act as the pastor at my church when the main pastor is not there.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I am eager to learn. I am young and the sooner I learn the sooner will I be able to implement this knowledge in my ministry. I have a sphere of influence of hundreds of people in Slovakia and other central European countries due to my work with youth. I would also like to improve my ability to manage a longer-term project. I want to gain strategic skills.
What is your leadership role?
My first leadership role was leading small groups at camps; I was just a teenager. I have been counsellor and the leader of counsellors at various camps in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. I later became the director of summer camps at my local church. During college, I was a mentor to other young men, encouraging and challenging them. I have lead small groups as well.
