We received invitation from Dodo Michalec, who is not only the youth leader but also the head of one of the pastors in the church alongside Dalibor Smolnik. Our team has been on this journey: Josh, Darinka, Draho and Janko ( a student of Fusion BB)
35 young people came to the presentation,, from which we learned that only 5 belong to the Baptist church. Others came from the reformed, AC, and Catholic churches. It was very refreshing for us to spend time with them this evening. At the beginning of the time, we were in the Bible encouraging youth missions and urged those present to answer this question: What is the alternative we offer today’s young Christians? This was followed by a practical example of Fusion where we were, as a team, Leading a normal Fusion night including: the game, Warm-up, singing, hot chair, and the talk. This was followed by an explanation of the values. and look up to where the chain of church life is Fusion as a contact service. Janko us At this point it really helped that we had the opportunity to show specifically where it was 7 months ago and where it is now. All of us, including Jano, told why we are in Fusion and after a short reflection in groups of 3; Darina, Jano, and I led a time of prayer and worship.
After a couple of interesting conversations took place, we could see quite clearly that the young people, who are not mostly in the Baptist church, are alive Christians willing to serve the church and have a place where God changes people’s lives. I do not know if I caught it correctly, but it was good for me to see so many young people’s potential to bring about great change. We will need to give them some tools to use. Someone else told me that the youth, although they are not the musical type, they quite enjoyed it. One boy told me that he liked the message that there is not only fun and music. Another boy, named Miki, told me that in Kosice Saca Church, they are trying to create some program for jr. Highers and that he also was granted the lease of room for it, by the mayor.
I think that this church should not have a problem with a lot of volunteers who could take turns at the different things and serve 10-12 different roles in FUSION. What you need to find out is who is in the leadership. Thus at least two people with a commitment for one year. One person for the music portion and the other for “relational” part of the fusion.
This week, they talk about it and pray that the will of God will be with Fusion.
