Project # 42.40101

BACKGROUND

The Budakalasz church was planted in 1999. After some struggling, difficult years, the church started getting healthy and growing. In 2018, a team was sent out to start a new church. This is a turning point in the history of the Church of God in Hungary. After sending out the team, the growth hasn’t stopped. Presently the church has many children but no place for children’s ministry. In the Catholic nation of Hungary, it is very rare and difficult for evangelical churches to grow.

Vision

The goal of this project is to create three new rooms for children’s ministry (Kindergarten-aged; elementary-aged; and teens) out of an unfinished space currently used for storage. When the space is not being used for children’s ministry, the space will be used for small group meetings during the week.

STRATEGY

The target population is the children in the church (both now and in the future). The kids will benefit from having space to grow in their knowledge and experience of God.

“We believe very strongly in reaching the youth and children in our church and in our community. Jesus said ‘let the children come to me.’ We are committed to making this project reality.”

National leader, Church of God Hungary

The Church of God in Hungary

The Church of God in Hungary was started in 1907 through the church in Germany. Much of the work was done not by North American missionaries. The first American missionaries to Hungary were commissioned as Special Assignment Missionaries in 1992. A couple of American churches walked alongside the Church of God in Hungary in the decades following. Now the church is growing, especially with young people!

Partnering to Make a Difference

The Cost

The total cost of the project is $32,265.70 of which the Church of God in Hungary plans to provide a quarter of the amount needed and has applied for a grant for another quarter of funding.

The remaining cost, after giving from the local church, is $18,980.

Promotion

The Children’s Ministry Center is being promoted in the local church, asking for special offerings and financial gifts in order to make the project happen. The church has also set aside funds from their budget to help with the cost of the build-out.

Evaluation

Brother Istvan Martonffy, a member of the national board of Hungary Church of God, will be overseeing the construction of the space. Pastor Peter Kiss and other church leaders will evaluate the progress and success will be defined and measured by when the church can start using the space for children’s ministry.
