In the wake of a godless, communist past, the magnificent churches that still hold a place of physical prominence have lost the cultural influence they once had over the people of Budapest. However, Hungarians are increasingly open to spiritual things, eager to experience Christian community as expressed in a form that has relevance for them. True life-change will come about as followers of Jesus become involved in neighborhoods and communities, acting as salt, light and leaven.
Public high schools in Budapest are regularly seeking native English speakers to join staff as volunteer English teachers. In this remarkable way, God is opening a door for followers of Christ to have a place of relational and spiritual influence in one of the most secular portions of Hungarian society.
