The Spiritual Need in Hungary

A medium-sized member of the European Union with about 10 million citizens, Hungary is nestled in Central Europe amid Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, and Austria. Hungary has a long history with Christianity, beginning with its first king who established Roman Catholicism as the official religion. In its 2011 census, the majority of Hungarians identified as Christians (54%), primarily Roman Catholic (37%) and Protestant (13%.) While the state has no official religion, its constitution recognizes the importance of Christianity in the founding of the nation, and freedom of religion as a right.

Despite an impressive history of Christianity, the spiritual atmosphere in Hungary can be described as cold and inactive. In fact, 27% of its people declare no religious affiliation. It is estimated that only three percent are evangelical believers. Church and religion are increasingly considered irrelevant or unimportant, creating a challenge to missionaries to develop appealing, vibrant ministry outlets and authentic, engaging relationships among the Hungarian people.

Church Planting In Hungary

The ABWE team works closely with local partners to strengthen existing churches, bolster national leaders through theological education and leadership training, and reach out to unreached communities with evangelism and discipleship efforts. Ministry opportunities include leading Bible studies, developing children’s ministries and teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) in Hungary. Our team is looking for people who are passionate about meeting new people and fostering deep relationships.

Budapest is the headquarters for ABWE’s ministries in Central and Eastern Europe, where we strategically focus on training Christian leaders, fostering national church-planting efforts, and growing the reach of the gospel in the region. Might God be leading you to join us in sharing the gospel in Hungary?


We'd love to talk with you about how God is leading you.
