What is your ministry?
I am the pastor of a Baptist church in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, a city of about 50,000 people. This is the second church I have pastored. I have now been the pastor here for 10 years. I was at my previous church for 11 years. I am responsible for preaching twice a week, leading worship, pastoral care, and other such tasks.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
My passion for ministry is church revitalization. Our church has 38 members, most of whom are older people. We have hit a plateau and we need to change to grow. I need help in how to implement this change, step by step. I need assistance, advice, encouragement, and mentoring. I have so many questions about what to do next: How do we bring health to the church? How do we do mission and evangelism and discipleship? How do I lead the church in growing in harmony, unity, love, and willingness to serve? How do I stay fresh in ministry? How do I keep joy in doing ministry? How do I improve my daily Bible reading and prayer time? How do I avoid burnout? How do I implement new habits that will refresh me physically, recharge me emotionally, and renew me spiritually?
What is your leadership role?
I am the pastor of a church in a city of 50,000 in western Czech Republic.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
My vision is to lead our church through the process of revitalization and change. Our church is dealing with a lot of internal criticism, stagnation, and conflict between two different groups of people.
