John grew up in Des Moines Iowa. In 1998, while teaching English at an evangelistic language camp in Hungary, John met Zsofi. Both John and Zsofi feel called to invest their time and talents into caring for the Hungarian people who are wounded and broken-whether that is physically, emotionally or spiritually. The 10 million people who live in Hungary are truly hungry.
Following a century of two devastating wars, the holocaust which annihilated 750,000 Hungarian Jews, and capped off by 40 years of oppressive Soviet Communist rule, Hungarians are hungry for peace and stability.
John is investing his time facilitating church planting – working with the existing Hungarian churches to help start churches in villages and communities where there currently are none. He will also assist the Hungarian pastors and church- planters mentor and train the next generation of Christian leaders.
Zsofi will be serving alongside John, but is also excited to use the education and training in Christian Psychology she received in Germany to minister to those who are emotionally and spiritually broken.
