Hello! My name is Krista and I am thrilled for the opportunity to return to Hungary this summer with the APEX Team (please view below for more details about the trip). My heart is already invested in this country and its people, and I feel a continued calling in my life to bring the hope of the Gospel to those who have not heard it.

The Bible teaches “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” (Romans 10:14 ESV). I am convicted to go and preach the word, and this will be my opportunity!

Our team will support and work alongside long-term missionaries and will bring the Gospel directly to students through the Word of God and engaging in English camps. Since this will be my fourth trip to Hungary I have become more immersed in their culture each time. Because of these prior opportunities, I am better equipped to engage with students to bring the Truth of God’s Word to them. In the past years that I have been there, I have seen salvations, students grow deeper in their walks with Christ, and lives enriched by Jesus! Through His equipping, leading, and guidance, I have faith that His work will be accomplished.

If you would like to support me in this ministry, please pray that the Lord would grant my team and I many opportunities to share the Gospel and that many will put their faith and trust in Him! If you’d like to support me financially, your gift would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support, both prayerfully and financially!

For the sake of Christ and His Kingdom, Krista

Trip Overview

In the midst of a sparkling, lively city, 97% of the residents of Budapest are living lives of quiet desperation, having not yet heard and responded to the gift of new life offered by Jesus Christ. God has given the local church a key role to play in His work in the advance of this good news, and in Budapest, we are committed to helping establish and encourage transformational local churches.

The ReachBudapest team is passionately seeking God for the city, praying to the Lord for its peace and propensity. Specifically we’re praying that God raises up 300,000 disciple-makers, 3,000 churches, and 300 ministry partners cooperating to bring gospel transformation to the city and causing it to also become a place of gospel influence. We’ve seen that many Hungarians are increasingly open to spiritual things, eager to experience Christian community, especially when it is expressed in a form that has relevance for them. And we believe that true life-change will come about as followers of Jesus, penetrate neighborhoods and communities, acting as salt, light, and leaven, living out their faith in the spaces God has prepared for them on the lanes and cultural highways of Hungarian society.

We’ve been blessed to welcome many young adults to our team in recent years, and we’ve seen that God’s plans are often to do just as much or more in you as He would do through you during the time you spend in Budapest. We believe that you will grow in many ways as a part of this experience, and we’re going to be alongside you through the process! Not only will you grow in community with other members of the APEX team, but you’ll experience community with the full-time missionaries on our team. Your seven weeks in Budapest will give you the opportunity to discover what it means to live out your life as a follower of Jesus in a highly secular urban setting in the heart of Europe, and explore what it is like be involved in full-time, cross-cultural ministry.

Air travel to Hungary is simple, with a variety of connections from the United States. During your stay in Budapest, you will live together with the rest of the APEX team within a ministry and community center operated by the ReachBudapest team in Kelenföld, a neighborhood in Budapest’s 11th district.

Ours is a huge city with significant needs, and seeing it reached for Christ is something beyond the work of any one mission organization or church or denomination. So we're working together with others believers from various backgrounds, linking arms out of a desire to see a gospel movement gain traction. Come and spend the summer being a part of this important work!
