Children and/or Youth
Raluca Sorhent is involved in youth ministry in Romania.
When did you trust Christ?
I was raised in a Christian family and loved Jesus from childhood, but He was not the Lord of my life. When I was a teenager, I attended a conference where I decided to follow Jesus for the rest of my life.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
For ten years I served in a small church as a youth leader and on the worship team. That was a time when God shaped me and helped me grow into the woman I am now.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I am convinced I will learn new skills and good strategies that will help me become a better leader. I will also make new Christian friends.
What is your ministry?
I lead a youth group of 15-20 people. We meet once a week at my home and have Bible study, worship time, pray, and enjoy a variety of activities. I meet with each of them one to one to help them to grow spiritually. I am also involved in youth leadership in my church by organizing youth camps and weekly youth meetings.
What are your past leadership roles?
I began with a small group of teenagers. We have weekly meetings for Bible study and to discuss their needs. I also organize different activities, including youth conferences and summer youth camps.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I think there are many individuals who have grown spiritually in a youth ministry. They can invest in the young generation through what I do. Young people will be the leaders of our country in a few years, so we need to make them into strong Christian leaders with a good foundation.
