Meet Jozsef and Csilla Steiner
Jozsef started off as an electrical engineer in Budapest, Hungary before sensing God’s call and beginning his studies first at the Baptist Theological Academy in Hungary, then TCMI in Austria. He is currently working on his PhD in missiology at the Reformed Theological University in Debrecen, Hungary.
Besides studying, Jozsef, assisted by his wife Csilla, also has been used by God to start two churches and is preparing for a third one while leading a non-denominational equipping ministry called BRIDGE.
It’s easy to notice Jozsef’s passion to help local churches build bridges to the un-churched and the society in which they are placed and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them in a relevant way.
In addition to his local church ministry, where he models what he preaches – a missional church that lets its light shine – Jozsef also teaches missions at two Bible Institutes, heads up Purpose Driven Ministry in Hungary and has been Executive Director for Christian Business People’s Association of Hungary for the last five years.
As Jozsef puts it: “being a practitioner, a student and a teacher, all at the same time, has been a good combination for us.” And the lives of individuals that have changed as a result of God using Jozsef and Csilla, shows how true that is.
As if this isn’t enough, Jozsef also visits Northern Romania (Transylvania), where two million Hungarians live, in an effort to equip the Hungarian churches there to be missional and bloom where they are planted.
Jozsef and 4D President Hank Paulson have known each other for many years, as they served on a ministry board together and Hank visited and witnessed the growing church and ministry in Debrecen.
4D Ministries welcomes BRIDGE, the Steiners and their team as special 4D partners in Hungary, while the board of BRIDGE also was unanimous in joining hands with 4D to further God’s ministry and model cooperation in doing so.
