Church Life, Leadership, and Planting
Ministry Administration and Service
Vitalii Klodnytskyi is the director of Media Studio InstalGod, a Bible seminary teacher, and a deacon and lay preacher.
When did you trust Christ?
I had visited church with my parents ever since I was a child. My father was a deacon and later became the pastor. God worked on my heart and, at the age of 16, my personal meeting with Christ took place. I realized my sinfulness and repented during a service of our local church. I have fully devoted myself to God since that time. A year after becoming a Christian, I decided to attend seminary.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
After I became a Christian I began a period of intense reading and study of the Bible. This got me thinking more and more about the meaning and purpose of my life. My cousin, who was the regional youth leader, invited me to attend Bible seminary. I studied there for three years; it changed my life completely. The seminary team helped me to find my life goals and encouraged me to study for my master’s degree in Bible and theology. The people I met during my studies were a great influence on me.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I am the coordinator of the Christian organization and want to be an effective leader. I want to grow in leadership qualities, to know how to develop the organization, to know how set new goals and achieve them. I want to learn about modern methods of Christian leadership. When the leader gets better, everything gets better. The European Leadership Forum helps me to be a better leader and makes me aware of the common challenges facing Christianity in this part of the world. Meeting new acquaintances and contacts and finding new resources for our ministry is another important aspect of the Forum for me.
What is your ministry?
I am the director of Media Studio InstalGod, which is engaged in creating a YouTube channel with Christian content. I am a teacher in a Bible seminary. I am also a deacon, preacher, and teacher, so I am responsible for the strategic development of the local church. In my combined areas of ministry, I am responsible for the strategic coordination of up to 100 volunteers.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was previously the leader of a student group.
