Christian Ministry—Pastoring/Church Planting
Bible Teachers and Preachers
Petr Boldis is a deacon and discipleship group leader in his local church.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a Christian in 2000 during after a showing on the Jesus film in Czech Republic. After the movie, I met with some American missionaries who led me to accept Jesus Christ as my savior. They also helped me take the first few steps of following Jesus after I became a Christian.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
Firstly, the testimony and discipleship I was provided by the missionaries who led me to the Lord were invaluable. They helped me take my first baby steps in the Christian faith. Secondly, I have experienced challenging times when God has been my only hope and when he has purified my internal motives. Finally, participating in different ministries in the church has helped me to learn and grow.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
The Forum provides me with encouragement in my ministry. I am able to learn new things and network with other Christians from my country and in my field of ministry. The Forum allows me to experience growth.
What is your ministry?
I am currently a deacon in my local church. I help shepherd and serve those who are in the church community and their families. Approximately 200 people attend our church. Many come from challenging life backgrounds and they are not able to easily cope with typical life situations. Many come from dysfunctional homes or backgrounds. Others have experienced difficult life situations such as long-term illnesses or deaths in their immediate family. One of the challenges I see is how to help people in difficult life circumstances. I also lead discipleship groups for men ages 20-45.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was previously the youth group leader for my church. I was responsible for leading, mentoring, discipling, and teaching the Bible to the young people of my church.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I am constantly growing and helping other spiritual leaders to grow. Our church wants to serve other Christians and make disciples who multiply.
