Long-time ITMI partner, Piotr Zaremba is the pastor of a Baptist church in Poznan, Poland. The K5N Church is large for a Baptist church in Poland, in fact, its one of the four largest Baptist churches in the predominantly Catholic country.
After the conference in Ukraine, Steve and his travel companion, Stuart, journeyed to Poland for a second conference, where they also taught the Seven Areas of Life Training (SALT) material. Seventeen English-speaking believers from K5N attended.
These 17 were hand-picked because they were already in positions to immediately implement and re-teach the Biblical truths laid out in the SALT material to others. This discipleship component is one reason ITMI has found the SALT material to be so effective for Jesus’s kingdom.
Part of the first SALT lessons were taught in the youth ministry the following Sunday, and the leaders reported fruitful conversations with the students around these matters of the heart and its tendency to put one’s own self in the place of God.
“I think this SALT workshop was excellent,” Piotr reported. He continued to say that he has already received a number of emails with questions about the material and is pleased that his leaders are engaging with the Biblical principles and are now equipped to teach them to others.
Thank you for your support of our ITMI team and the discipleship they were able to accomplish through this visit to Ukraine and Poland. Your support of ITMI in general helps us accomplish these kingdom building opportunities.
