Community Health Evangelism

Our goal is to form healthy Christian lives, congregations and communities by serving the poor in Hungary.

I was raised in a Christian home.  My dad is a Hungarian Baptist pastor, so Jesus’ call was obvious and early in my childhood. My family and church life were inspiring to me, and at a young point of my life I was curious about the Lord. I needed that personal decision to get my relationship right with the Lord. I told Him that I need salvation, to have my sins forgiven and that I believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

After graduating from High School, I studied Physical Education in Budapest. I loved sports, children and wanted to know God’s leading in my life. ’Where is my place in the world? What is my role?’

I was searching for answers, so after the BA in 3 years, I went to the Word of Life Bible School to gain personal convictions about the Bible, what God gave us to know of His directions and how to live our lives.

After the 2 years of Bible School I stayed as an intern for 1.5 years on the Camp team, while I taught PE in Budapest. I learned a lot in that year. I saw that it’s really hard, impossible FOR ME to do two things at the same time. I couldn’t focus on one, while thinking of the other. So I knew that way of life was not for me.

I didn’t join CHE/MEK, because I didn’t have any other choice. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to work as a teacher, but because I knew God had a call for me among Gypsies in Hungary. I got to know many of them with my dad, when I went with him in ministry. I got to love them and saw that there’s a big need to pass on what I know and what I’m learning of God. I wanted to be there for them.  

Trusting in the Lord, I joined MEK to be a full-time staff member at the start of the Hungarian Foundation of CHE in the beginning of 2013. I do administration, communications, Bible teaching, but I enjoy most when I’m with my friends in the villages or get to know new people. Meanwhile, God answered my prayer for a husband. We got to know each other in the ministry. I married Laci in 2014. Today we have three children. Simeon (2015), Jonatán (2017) and Lóisz (2021).

I wanted to know more and to be more effective, so I completed the Hungarian Baptist Seminary’s MA course in 2016. There, I learned theology and social work. Many good experiences and background for our work, by the grace of God, that want to use for His glory and the benefit of others.
