The Pinter Family – Church Planting in Izsák

On a mission trip to Orgovany, Hungary with the Good News Foundation in 2016 we met and connected strongly with Kori and Sylvi Pinter.

Supported by the Good News Foundation they had launched an evangelistic mission in Izsák and were seeking to establish a new church. We helped them with evangelism, church services and prayer walking.

The Pinter Family

Following that visit ChristChurch has continued to partner with both the Good News Foundation and the Pinter family. This takes place through prayer, a monthly donation and regularly sending mission teams to help with the mission work and church planting (once or twice each year).

Kori is now an ordained pastor and he works with and for the Apostolic Church. He and Sylvi continue their ministry in Izsák and Orgovány through Home Church which meets on Friday evenings in the outbuildings they have renovated at their property. This is alongside pastoral visits to maintain relationships and friendships.

Church Planting In Abony

Through partnering with the Apostolic Church Kori and the family are now helping church plant in Abony. This work is growing and they are seeing people respond to the gospel in encouraging ways.

Kori took over pastoring this church plant early in 2022 so this is therefore now one of the key priorities in their continuing ministry and mission work. In time the family are planning on moving to Abony.

Other Areas of Ministry

Kori is also part of the leadership of a church plant in Jászladány Gypsy church where he serves 1-2 times each month. Pastoral care takes place through a hybrid model of in-person & online interaction.

He is also occasionally serving through guest ministry in local Izsák and Orgovány churches as well as helping with local work to support Ukrainian refuges.

Kori and Sylvi are currently undergoing training to be foster cares and adopters. Once completed they hope to expand their family by caring for two young children.
