Graduate of Living Faith Bible Institute, church planter, and missionary Kale Horvath, joins us again to give an update on the new church plant growth in Budapest, Hungary, including personal testimonies from the first few years on the mission field. 

 Kale moved his family to Budapest, Hungary as missionaries in December of 2020, in the middle of Covid quarantines (lockdowns). Kale shares what challenges they faced, including: landing during a pandemic, getting a visa during the shutdown, learning a new (foreign) language, preaching with a Hungarian Bible to people of Hungarian culture, praying for & finding a church building, learning to effectively evangelize in a new culture and finding schools and education for Kale and Brooke’s children. 

Kale walks us through how the Living Faith Bible Institute and ministry service in his local church (youth pastoring) built him into a minister ready for missions work. He served on staff at First Baptist Church as the youth pastor from 2015-2019. Kale and Brooke first visited Hungary in 2014, and returned annually until moving to Budapest in 2020. 

Kale & Brooke have ministered through short trips in Hungary since 2014 through summer camps for kids and sharing the gospel. By the end of 2023 into early January, the Horvath’s had officially planted Zuglói Biblia Gyülekezet (Zugló Bible Church) in the fourteenth district of Budapest, Hungary.

Finally, Kale gives a glimpse into a book he is authoring which is meant to help those who are deconstructing or have deconstructed their faith. In the book, he gives the biblical handles a believer needs to actively engage in faith and grow closer to God and his people.
