Krzysztof Wojcik is a pastor in Poland.
When did you trust Christ?
I trusted the Lord in 1983 in Lodz, Poland. I was eagerly looking for salvation in the Catholic Church, but in vain. I prayed for one year, however, the only prayer I knew was the Lord’s prayer. Then my cousin invited me to a Pentecostal church where I found the true way of Jesus.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
In my early days I watched many abuses in the church. I asked the Lord to help me discern spiritual things and be an observer of His Word. I attended the Theological University in Warsaw. I moved to Gdynia where my theological education was badly received because people were afraid of theologians. It was a moment in my life when I wanted to leave, but the Lord called me to ministry and since then I have been a pastor.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I desire continuous development despite being in my 50s. I still have a lot to learn. I also desire to meet other pastors and Bible teachers from Poland and from elsewhere in Europe. Poland is still a very Catholic country and it is good to have fellowship with other believers.
What is your ministry?
I am the pastor of a church. I help people in spiritual need through counseling. I help people understand God’s Word and provide answers to tough biblical questions. I preach and teach the Bible.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was a teacher for the student organization Petra. In addition, I was in charge of the ICI correspondence Bible course in Poland, and a commuter teacher in the Bible school in Elbląg in northern Poland.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I am passionate for the Gospel and ministry. I am committed to spreading the Gospel throughout Poland and all of Europe.

Norbert Pawlak is a deacon, music minister, and home group leader.

When did you trust Christ?

I became a Christian in 1986 during Sunday school at my church. I knew that I was a sinner who needed to repent. I gave my life to Jesus that day. Five years later I was baptized in water. I love God and want to follow Him until the end of my life.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

The biggest influence in my life has been my parents. I saw tremendous changes in the lives of my parents after they became Christians. They taught me and discipled me and I grew to spiritual maturity because of them.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

I am so happy and thrilled to be part of the Forum. The Forum is an excellent idea and I am strongly amazed by the knowledge and scholarship I receive from so many experienced men and women of God. For me, it is an honor, privilege, and unexplainable blessing from God.

What is your ministry?

I am a deacon in my local church. I am involved in music ministry and international home group leadership. For 15 years my wife Anna and I have done outreach ministry through a gospel choir (outside the church). I am also involved in children’s ministry and teaching in our church.

What are your past leadership roles?

My whole ministry has mostly revolved around music ministry in one way or another. However, I co-pastored a small church for three years.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I strongly believe that my ministry brings a lot of fruit among young people looking for a personal relationship with the Lord. After the testimonies and fruits of many years of ministry, I see that God has stayed behind it.

Petra Ratkovics is a speaker and PhD student.

When did you trust Christ?

After a few years of Bible class in primary school, I went to my church’s summer camp for the first time. During the camp, I became close with members of the youth group and we chatted every night. I was amazed to see their love for God and for each other, and to hear their testimonies really got to my heart. I had heard of salvation and the meaning of the cross, but I never really understood it. But then one evening after worship the preacher spoke of Calvary and Jesus’s love. For the first time I understood God’s great love for me. I decided to follow and trust Him.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

My parents divorced shortly after my conversion. That event made me depend on the only sure thing in my life: Jesus. After starting my university studies, I discovered more of the freedom I have in Christ. I got to know more believers from different walks of life. While writing my first research paper I was faced with questions about my trust in God and His plan for me; after a long struggle, I found a deeper and more mature trust in Jesus.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

The European Leadership Forum is a great opportunity to connect with other academics and to understand and see more of the academic life. The Forum also deepens my relationship with God through Bible teaching and through Christian community. The Forum has opened up a number of opportunities I was previously unaware of. I have made meaningful connections with others and it has strengthened my devotion to Christ and to God’s supreme authority. It has also provided me with useful materials that I will almost certainly use in my future ministry.

What is your ministry?

I give lectures on different topics related to apologetics and Christianity. For example, I have given talks about the reliability of the Old Testament, the reliability of the New Testament, and on homosexuality. I am also a PhD student at Karoli Gaspar University, studying the book of Jeremiah and the Greek Jeremiah-text (Septuagint). Currently I am working as a TA for one of my professors and as a substitute for another professor. I am also writing a paper that will hopefully benefit the theology students and other students. I lead a youth group and a small group.

What are your past leadership roles?

For the last 5-8 years, I have been leading small groups at various conferences and camps. I have been leading a youth group for two years. I spent the last year in a church working as an assistant pastor.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

If I see God’s calling, I’m driven. I want to give my best and all that I am. I would return or pass on any investment in me to others.

Adam Szabados has been the pastor of a church in Veszprém since 1999. He also has a popular blog on Christianity which has a million views every year.

When did you trust Christ?

I was brought up in the church, so I heard the Gospel from my early childhood. But it was in a Hungarian Fellowship of Evangelical Students camp that the grace of God conquered my resistance. I was 16 years old and I felt very guilty for my lifestyle. The Holy Spirit enabled me to give my entire life, will, mind, and heart to Almighty God. After that I knew from experience that Jesus is alive.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

I married my wife, Dóra, in 1996 and we decided to live in Veszprém and began to attend a church plant in the town. In 1999 I became the pastor of that church. A year later the church became an independent evangelical church. My years as a pastor of the church have been testing times for me, but also very rewarding. Times of loneliness and the burden of responsibility taught me to depend on God and about the incomprehensible covenantal love of Christ.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

When I came to the Forum the first time in 2004, I was a pastor who was isolated in the ministry and I was surrounded by many people who were drifting away from the faith. It was a very discouraging situation. And I had no idea there were so many other Christian leaders like me who either were struggling like me or had already found a larger fellowship or a pool of resources that they could rebuild their convictions. When I came to the Forum, I was just shocked by what I experienced.

The Lord has used the Forum in my life in unexpected ways. The Forum is helpful to me in so many ways. It is a blessing to meet other Christian leaders and to just encourage one another. We have lovely fellowship at our dinner tables, where we receive mutual encouragement from one another. It has been a great blessing to be able to meet speakers and participants who have such wonderful hearts.

What is your ministry?

I pastor an evangelical church. I have been a pastor for more than 20 years. I lead the work of the Hungarian Evangelical Forum, which is a direct fruit of the European Leadership Forum. I also write for a website which communicates the truthfulness of the Gospel to Hungarians, which has turned out to be an unexpected success. I am working on a PhD now in New Testament, which involves also teaching Greek and some other subjects at a university in Budapest. I also sometimes speak at conferences and other events.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I would like to thank you for your generosity and the support that I received from you so that I could participate in the Forum. Thank you for your financial support. May God bless you and give you a hundredfold return in spiritual riches! The Forum is a wonderful opportunity to be in the mainstream of European evangelical thinking and networking.

“I don’t see anything in Europe that would have a more powerful effect on the continent as far as the Gospel is concerned than the European Leadership Forum.”

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

My missions work on the building site of our church and the growth of our small Baptist community here in Karlovy Vary has been defining in my Christian walk. My study of theology in Russia and the birth of our first baby after 14 years of marriage and prayer also impacted my faith greatly.

Adrian Strozek is the pastor of a church in northern Poland.

When did you trust Christ?

I made my original decision to follow the Lord Jesus in July of 1982.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

The defining moments of my Christian walk began in my home. My mom was a great testimony for me. She was the first person who shared Gospel with me and has been a great influence since then. Another defining influence was my church. I grew up in Brethren Church in southern Poland. It was conservative, Bible-believing church. During my high school years I felt a growing desire and call to go into full time ministry. I decided not to go to medical school, but instead to go to seminary to prepare for the ministry. I can’t underestimate the influence of my teachers and fellow students. Another defining moment was marrying a woman ready to support me in ministry. There was also the church that I did my pastoral development and training, and 10 years ago finally becoming a pastor in a local Baptist church in Gdansk in northern Poland.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

Most of the people in the church are university educated, so I see the need to develop my apologetic skills and approach. Though I took apologetics courses in my seminary years, I still have much to learn. My role as a pastor in a local church also means that I must be prepared to give all the time – sermons, leading and preparing small groups, leadership development, pastoral counseling, and so on. I need time to be fed and inspired and refreshed in my ministry so that I can help feed and inspire others.

What is your ministry?

I am a pastor of a local Baptist Church in Gdansk, in northern Poland. It is a young, growing church that is very active. My responsibility is to keep the right direction of the development of our church, through teaching, leadership development, keeping a balance between different ministries, and increasing the church’s growth. I preach and teach on Sundays and during the week at small groups and in youth meetings. I teach at conferences and help lead camps. I intentionally develop new leaders in our church. I try to inspire our church for mission and evangelistic involvement. I delegate different ministries to responsible people, so the church is engaged and using its gifts.

What are your past leadership roles?

Before I become a pastor in Gdansk, I was youth pastor in the nearby town of Malbork for five years. Before that I was involved in leading mission trips, and youth and children’s ministry both locally and nationwide.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I need support for refreshment, inspiration, reflection, and preparation for future challenges in my ministry. Gdansk is a large city where many people will hear the Gospel and God’s church is growing. The Forum is an excellent opportunity to meet excellent teachers and partners for ministry. I will be extremely thankful for any investment in my development and my ministry.

Milos Masarik is a pastor of a church and provides pastoral care for theology students in the Union of Baptist Churches.

When did you trust Christ?

I was 16-years-old when I heard a sermon at our church about God´s mercy. It was not particularly special, but God was present and the Holy Spirit opened my eyes and heart so that I realized what my life should be about. I realized what God´s love means and what it means that I should love Him. I visited church from my childhood (my father was a pastor, but now he is professor). I always kept Christian moral standards, but at this time when I was 16, I finally realized, thanks to God, what His love is.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

During my childhood my parents developed my faith by their example in my life (teaching summer school and taking me to church). Their Christian example was continuous during my adolescence and into the present. When I was 7 or 8-years-old, I had an important discussion with my father where I realized what sin is. When I was 16-years-old I understood and accepted the love and mercy of my Lord. When I was 17-years-old I was baptized. When I was 19-years-old I started my studies of evangelical theology and missions at university.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

The Forum has helped me in the past with my academic development. I was studying for my PhD at the time and it influenced me tremendously. My long term goal of academic research is to implement the Gospel in the daily economic life of people in Slovakia. There is no tradition to follow. Attending the Forum has helped me to develop in this area.

What is your ministry?

I am the full time pastor of a local Baptist church in Ruzomberok. I was also delegated by the Union of Baptist Churches with the spiritual care for students of theology from our union. My wife and I have a small publishing house and e-shop with theological literature. I am member of the board of a Slovak Christian summer festival called Campfest. I am also working to implement clinical pastoral training in Slovakia.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I hope the Forum will not only bring me new knowledge, touching theology, and enhancement of my Christian ministry, but will also form my vision of using my studies for Christian ministry in Slovakia.

Sandor Molnar is a church elder and Bible teacher.

When did you trust Christ?

I was an atheist. During my university years, one of my friends talked to me about Jesus. I was interested in Jesus and read the Bible, but I considered it foolishness. However, I was open to finding the truth and I so one day I said, “God if you exist I want to know you.” In those days my grandmother became ill and the doctors said she would most probably die after the operation. I was so depressed. My friend told me that I could ask God to heal my grandmother. I prayed to the God I did not believe in at that time. My grandmother fully recovered and the doctors did not understand. From that time on I started to read my Bible and very soon I recognized that the Bible was talking about me. I realized my sins. One day the whole picture became clear to me; it was like putting together a puzzle. I prayed and received Christ into my life.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

The most defining moment for me was at the very start of my Christian walk: when I realized that God existed and that He had revealed himself in the Bible. He has been my Pastor ever since, leading me, using different people like my pastors, my Christian friends, my wife, different life situations like longing for my spouse, building our home, or going through a disc hernia, etc. I cannot choose any particular moment because every day when I spend time with God and whenever I understand anything from Him, that is a defining moment for me.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

I believe that if I can grow in the skills of expository preaching God may use me to spread the Gospel and also help other Christians to grow more effectively. I also think I would benefit from meeting other fellow ministers who labor in the same kind of ministry.

What is your ministry?

I am currently an elder and Bible teacher at Calvary Chapel Budapest. Among my leadership duties my main ministry is a teaching ministry: I teach the Monday night in-depth Bible study at our church on a weekly basis. I have been teaching the Bible verse by verse, book by book, for the past eight years. I am also a theology student at Covenant Theological Seminary.

What are your past leadership roles?

I was a youth leader in a reformed church for five years. I was a home fellowship leader in Calvary Chapel for seven years. I have been an elder in Calvary Chapel Budapest for 15 years. I have been a regular weekly Bible teacher in Calvary Chapel Budapest for eight years.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

The main focus of my ministry here in Eastern Europe is twofold: preaching the Gospel so that God’s kingdom might grow and feeding God’s people with the Word of God so that they might grow up to maturity. Thank you to anyone who wants to invest in this ministry financially.

When did you trust Christ?

I grew up in a Christian home, so I knew about Christianity from an early age. I made my decision to repent and follow Jesus when I was 16-years-old during a special evangelism service in my home church. I felt convicted and knew that I wanted to follow Jesus Christ with my whole heart.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

When I was 18-years-old I started to work as a youth worker and youth helper. I also attended several Christian camps, youth conferences, and retreats as a counselor. I have met several influential people who have really encouraged me and shaped my understanding of faith.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

Attending the Forum has helped me to learn how to better make disciples of the youth in my sphere of influence. I have received excellent teaching and new ideas for my ministry.

What is your ministry?

I am a pastor in two churches. I am a youth pastor in a Baptist church in Łódź, Poland. In the second church I am the full time pastor. These two churches are in two different cities in Poland. I am also active in youth ministry in the larger Baptist denomination in Poland. Previous to that I spent several years in other churches as a youth pastor. I take care of youth, teenagers, and college students.

What are your past leadership roles?

I started to lead when I was 18-years-old. First I was a youth leader in my home church. After that my pastor suggested that I study at theological seminary. So I did. Then I started my pastoral training in the city of Torun, but for financial reasons I was not able to continue and had to find a full time job. In 2007 I was presented with another pastoral opportunity in another city, so I moved and I started my pastoral training again. After three years of training I moved to another city to start a youth pastor job. That job lasted for two years. In January of 2013 I moved to Łódź to my current job as a youth pastor. I have since also become a full time pastor in a second church.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I believe that I have a lot to learn and need more training and study. I am grateful for any additional training I receive because it will help me to improve my ministry and the work I do with teenagers and university students.

When did you trust Christ?

I made the decision to follow Jesus when I was 12-years-old. I was attending a Bible study and I came to understand that the Gospel is real and that I need to trust and follow Jesus. For me it was more a process, rather than a single moment that changed my life. I grew up in a Christian family and attended a Baptist church. It came to my mind that Christianity is the truth and the only thing that is worth of following

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

The most defining moments of my Christian walk have been hard and painful times. When my girlfriend broke up with me in November of 2010, it changed a lot in my life and made me think harder about my faith and whether I was really committed to it. Another difficult time was when my mom got a cancer three years ago. It got me thinking more about life and death, about things that are everlasting, and things that will not perish. I also learned a lot as a leader in a youth camp, which I have done more than 10 times. Those camps really changed the perspective I have for my life.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

I want to return to the European Leadership Forum because of the influence it has already had on my ministry. The Forum is a great time of meeting new people who have similar ministry challenges to mine. It is an opportunity to share experiences, come up with creative solutions, and to focus on what God has called us to do. It is truly a blessing to be able to learn from people who have been serving the Lord longer than me and to have the possibility of talking with them about my future.

What is your ministry?

I am responsible for leading and teaching two Bible groups for boys and for leading youth meetings every week. I also take care of a men’s meeting once a month. I preach during Sunday service once every two months. I lead prayer meeting every Wednesday morning and try to provide pastoral care for people in our church.

What are your past leadership roles?

My past leadership roles very mostly concerned about serving the youth. I have been a leader at Christian youth camps 10 times.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I am humble and very aware of myself, of my limits, and of the sins that I struggle with. I am engaged in other people’s lives and passionate about the ministry that I do. I finished study at the University of Technology in Gdansk, and worked for five years as Robotics Engineer with laser welding, automotive, and ships. I left my job as robotics engineer because I think that full time ministry will be better for growing God’s kingdom.

When did you trust Christ?

I accepted Christ in 1969, at the age of 15, during an evangelistic summer camp. My decision was preceded by several months of personal spiritual struggle, during which I was acutely aware of my sinfulness. I knew about Christ’s death for me, but it was only at the camp that I surrendered my life to Him.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

My pastor and predecessor discipled me for several years and helped develop my love for the Bible and sound theological books. In 1972, I applied to study theology, but was not allowed to do so by our Communist state authorities. After that, I was closely watched by the secret police and was unable to receive a promotion at work until the fall of Communism in 1989. In 1992-1993, I was able to complete my first theological degree at London Bible College. In 2001, I completed my PhD in Systematic Theology.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

I have participated in its work for several years because it helps me to keep up to date in recent developments in theology and in the way evangelical theologians may respond to them. The Forum has made it possible for me to make personal contacts with other European theologians. It has helped to widen my horizon within the evangelical movement in Europe, something that I am still working to instill into the thinking and ministry of my denomination, as well as in other churches. Around the world, but in Eastern Europe especially, believers are divided by denomination. It is frustrating as a leader of leaders to know that there are many great Christian men and women in my country with resources and ideas that will spread evangelical thinking, and yet without the Forum I would have never known them. I am now able to unite with other evangelical leaders and spread the Gospel more efficiently and effectively as we work together rather than on our own. I would not be able to say this was happening without the work of the Forum. I want to continue developing all the benefits I mentioned and would like to build and strengthen the connection between great resources provided by the Forum and our needs in Slovakia.

What is your ministry?

As General Secretary of Cirkev Bratska I represent our denomination to other denominations inside and outside of Slovakia and to the state. I also serve on the Theological Committee of the International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches, where I oversee the ordination process of new pastors, organize and teach seminars on expository preaching, and hold an annual conference on Biblical proclamation. I am also a senior lecturer in Christian Ethics and Historical Theology the University of Matej Bel in Banska Bystrica.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I desire to enrich and expand my expositional preaching ministry, not only in my church, but abroad. It is so important for people to focus on what God wants to say to us through His Word rather than focusing on what makes us feel good. I want to be able to serve and teach a wider range of people. By investing in my ministry, you will be able to encourage the integration of Eastern European ministry and theological research into the international Evangelical movement. We as evangelical Christians are called to be agents of hope for Europe.

Apologetics

When did you trust Christ?

I was born and raised in a Roman Catholic family. I was a devout child, but with no deep understanding of the faith delivered to me by my parents. After receiving my confirmation I was disappointed because I did not notice any change within me. I was also realizing my sinfulness and guilt, which could not be erased by confession and penance. This was the beginning of the process that ultimately distanced me from Christianity of any kind. I felt an emptiness that could not be filled with anything. I turned to esotericism, Eastern meditation, and conspiracy theories. One of them was really strange and it was about the Roman Catholic Church as the Great Harlot from the Book of Revelation. It was interesting because I thought that it was impossible to turn the Bible against the Catholic Church. I was convinced that the Bible was the Church’s book. Vain and unbelieving curiosity brought me to read the Book of Revelation and then I decided to read the rest of the New Testament. I found that it really spoke to me personally. It responded to my deep needs and desperate desires. The Pauline Epistles gave me the remedy for my internal sinfulness and my fear of God’s wrath associated with my guilt. I discovered the Gospel of the salvation by grace alone through faith alone, based on my Savior’s perfect sacrifice and merit alone.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

Paradoxically, my faith has been stabilized by trials. The last two years have been hard for me, but in every situation without a solution I have turned to Christ again and again so that I could find true peace.

Why do you want to attend the Forum?

I think that every lecture on apologetics or related to the Reformation’s conflict with Rome will benefit my ministry. At the Forum I will also make contacts and meet people who can help me in what I plan to do in ministry, especially regarding a book I would like to write. I am a Polish student, so Christian books and materials from the U.K. and the U.S. are really expansive, but the great advantage of the Forum is that there is an opportunity to buy such books at a lower price. This is a huge blessing.

What is your ministry?

I am organizing workshops in apologetics with my pastor and we want to continue developing this project. My main field of study is apologetics related to Roman Catholicism, while my pastor is interested in philosophical debate with atheists and agnostics. I have also prepared my first sermons and sometimes I lead the Bible studies at the Christian student meetings, which it seems I will do more frequently in the coming year. When it comes to the Internet ministry, I am a moderator of a Polish Protestant web forum: http://forum.protestanci.info/

What are your past leadership roles?

The record of my past leadership roles is not very long. I am still a student preparing himself for the ministry by continual learning and taking small steps to broaden my ministry field.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I believe that there is a need for genuine, academic, and well-prepared Protestant apologetics in our Roman Catholic country. There are almost no meaningful books on such topics, so my dream is to write one to equip pastors, ministers, and those who are willing to engage Catholics with the Gospel. Continuing and expanding our apologetics workshops in Torun would spread the Reformation message in Poland, which is strictly a Counter-Reformation country.
