WE WANT TO EXPLORE HOW TO SHARE OUR FAITH BETTER HOW TO BE PEOPLE WHO LIVE CHRISTIANLY AND GOSSIP THE GOSPEL
We’re hosting our forth weekend gathering in the summer, camping in the idyllic gardens and grounds of our headquarters in Welwyn, 25 miles north of London. Pitch your tent alongside other young adults. Join us to learn how to nurture a contagious Christian faith to engage the most secular society on earth. The continent of Europe comprises about 13% of the world’s population living in about fifty countries. All have a Christian tradition of sorts but know very little of the truth of Biblical Christianity. You’ll hear a range of perspectives from across Europe, meet the students at our School and other like-minded Christians. We will dig into the Bible and might toast some marshmallows.
MAIN SPEAKER: Pál Borzási
Pál was born into a Christian family, in the province of Transylvania where they belonged to the Hungarian ethnic minority. He learned the truths of the Bible from his parents at an early age. Despite difficult circumstances around the time of the revolution in 1989, Pál remained fully committed to serving the Lord and was encouraged to study theology. He came to study at the EMF School of Biblical Studies in 1995 which was followed by a further year of practical training in a church in Cambridgeshire. He continued to pursue theological studies at the Hungarian Baptist Seminary in Cluj, at Bucharest University (BA) and at Evangelical Theological College of Wales in Bryntirion, now Union School of Theology (MA).
Pál is currently the pastor of the Hungarian Baptist Church in Luna de Sus and is writing his PhD on The Missiological Significance of Luke 24:44-49 in the Theology of the Act of the Apostles. Besides pastoring the church, he reaches out to the Gypsy community of Mera. As most of the Gypsies in the village were illiterate, Pál taught them the alphabet so that they could read the Bible. There is now a small Gypsy church in the village and those saved are a powerful testimony to the village. Pál also heads up the youth work and runs children’s camps over the summer period. In addition, he is involved with theological training at the Hungarian Baptist Theological Faculty in Oradea and acts as a mentor for those who graduate from the seminary.
Pál married Anna and they now have three children. They have been missionaries with the European Mission Fellowship since 2000.
My expectations were met tenfold
“My expectations we met tenfold! I was able to engage, encourage and learn from other people who were from around Europe (and the World!).”
“I’ve attended other mission events and weekends for young adults, and I can honestly say this was one of the best weekends I’ve experienced. The conference exceeded my expectations on so many levels.”
I feel equipped
“What a great weekend. Great people, amazing atmosphere, edifying and equipping.”
CHAMPIONING THE MISSION OF EUROPE
This is an exciting a unique conference hosted by EMF for young adults in their 20s and 30s.
