6 youth leaders from all over Hungary have applied for training to help them teach the Bible to youth faithfully, relevantly and clearly. It may seem a small number – it is, relative to the number of church youth leaders in the country! However we praise the LORD that it is the highest number of applicants to date who have had a place confirmed at this ‘early’ stage in the year.
Applications will stay open for Acorn Bible Training – Acorn Bibliai Képzés (ABK) throughout July. A number of people have told us they are still thinking through whether to apply. It seems many are rightly thinking through whether they have capacity to do the course. Some are concerned about over-doing it, now that covid restrictions have disappeared and life has ‘restarted’ again in Hungary.
The Béla video – viewable here – has been a great help in explaining the purpose of the course. All current applicants have insight into how they long to grow in their Bible-teaching ability – a characteristic not always obvious amongst many youth leaders.
The team’s task is now to continue spreading the word throughout July. Also to connect with youth leaders who are still thinking through whether to apply. Pray they would make wise decisions, knowing themselves and their contexts. Please pray too that they would see the longer-term investment of this course and take advantage of it.
Finally please pray for the initiative on the website and Facebook to promote the course through the opinions of well-known pastors throughout the country. We long that people would see and be inspired that they too could benefit through the ABK course.
