Children and/or Youth
Agron Zefi is the leader of the youth ministry in his local church and is a lay preacher.
When did you trust Christ?
I converted to Christianity in 1996 when I was teenager. I was invited to attend a Christian conference and the preacher talked about sin and how awful sin is to God. It was as if the whole message was meant for me because I was such a sinner. Afterwards God showed me from his Word that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross was the only way to be forgiven and to receive spiritual rebirth. During that same conference I bowed my head and accepted in prayer that I was a sinner and I was worthy of God’s eternal wrath. I accepted that Christ took my place and asked Him to be my Savior. I asked Him to forgive me and to give me a new life as He promised in His word.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
There have been many specific people and many specific moments that have defined my progress as a Christian. These include reading my Bible, long and deep discipleship meetings with my pastor, attending two years of theological school, the preaching in my church, and participating in the youth ministry in my church.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
It is a special blessing to participate in the Forum. I benefit from the preaching and from teaching tools and techniques that I learn there. I hope that through these experiences I will be better equipped for my ministry. By being part of the Forum, I am also renewed spiritually, become more motivated for the work ahead, am inspired by the Word of God, and receive new energy for my ministry journey.
What is your ministry?
I am the leader of the youth ministry in my church. I teach young people the Bible, mentor and disciple them, and encourage them. I am also one of three men who preach the Bible every Sunday in our church.
What are your past leadership roles?
I have led the children’s ministry in my church for five years. This has been a period of transformation.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I am a person who wants to serve and to bless others in the same way that I have been blessed. I am teachable, humble, and faithful to my teachers and to my Lord.
