In 2007 Mike and Nancy were appointed by the Department of Global Missions to be the directors of INSTE in the Hungarian language. They lived in Debrecen, Hungary, and oversaw INSTE groups studying in the Hungarian language in Hungary, Ukraine, and Holland.
In April of 2018 a new Hungarian INSTE director, Vince Varga, was inaugurated at their annual INSTE conference. Mike shares: "Our job is now complete in Hungary but our work in Eastern Europe is not done. We are now going to minister in the Open Bible church in Gherla, Romania.
"During our time in Hungary we traveled to Gherla several times to help and encourage the church. As missionaries, we will work with the new pastor to establish INSTE groups, identify and train leaders in the church, develop ministries for outreach into the community, and create strategies for planting churches in nearby cities."
