What is your ministry?
As a pastor and missionary, I teach and preach the Bible often. I teach an ethics class for youth in a state school. I also teach a preparation course for missionaries. Before the pandemic I traveled teaching and training leaders in different aspects of their lives. For me, the Bible is the fountain of wisdom, and we cannot bring people close to God if we cannot properly use the Bible. To go deeper in our knowledge of the Bible is our duty as Christians. It is our daily bread.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I would like to go deeper into difficult passages from the Bible. I would like to go deeper in my knowledge of our Lord. I believe that a year with people who are passionate about Jesus and who share their experiences will help us all to grow in faith and help us all in the ministries that our Lord have entrusted to us. The Bible is our guide; we should learn to use this guide as much as we can.
What is your leadership role?
I am working in a church which has about 60 adults and 30 kids. My main role in the church is as the second pastor. As part of being the second pastor, I lead work with men and the youth. I also coordinate the Sunday school. We are a small church that wants to work in a way that is totally biblical. We have started a program with small groups. The main goal is that the people can have a place to grow. My wife and I are the hosts of one small group.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I want to improve my skills in preaching and exegesis. I want to better understand difficult passages and difficult books of the Bible.
