Szilárd is serving with Acorn Camps in Hungary for one to three years.
Over 50% of the Hungarian population claim to be Christian but for many it doesn’t affect their everyday life. Most reach adulthood without ever hearing the gospel of the Lord Jesus. Acorn Camps helps Hungarian churches reach teenagers for Christ. They run summer camps to help churches reach out to young people in their communities and train youth leaders through conferences, a part-time course and mentoring.
Szilárd is from Hungary and came to London for university. God used a Christian friend, the Christian Union and a local church to answer Szilárd’s questions about God and change his heart. After he finished his studies, Szilárd was a ministry intern at St James’ Church alongside training on the Cornhill Training Course. In September 2020, Szilárd returned to Hungary to work with Acorn Camps. He is leading the youth groups at a placement church as well as helping with admin and communications and serving on the summer camps.
This summer I was looking forward to rest and recreation. I am very grateful to God that I got plenty of it. One of the biggest highlights was the Sonship conference. Thanks to our teachers and conversations – one-to-one, in small groups and around meals, teas and coffees – the gospel has become so exciting and visibly relevant in everyday life again. Since then I have mentioned or thought about our adoption as sons in most conversations. It was an amazing week!
