An opportunity to serve in the ministries of the Reformed Church in Hungary, live in community with other young adults, and cultivate skills for lifelong learning and faith development

Spend a year in Hungary serving with the Reformed Church in Hungary. We'll help you find a service placement that fits your passion and interests, such as church communications, pastoral leadership, refugee resettlement, and more. 

Resonate missionaries Jeff and Julie Bouman will walk alongside you through a year of growth and exploration as you navigate your own vocation and role in the city and beyond. You'll live in community with other volunteers and participate in the larger community of the church in Hungary. Engaging with local partners, local congregations, and your fellow volunteers, you'll explore the city and develop a contextualized understanding of Hungarian culture. 

You'll learn some Hungarian language, be introduced to the historical and cultural context of Eastern Europe, and engage with God while living in an international city. 

This placement is a part of the Cohort Europe program. As a participant in this program you'll have direct contact with other Resonate volunteers serving in Berlin, Germany and Klaipeda, Lithuania. You'll begin your year together with a common orientation, and during the year you'll visit and host one another, being exposed to a variety of programs operating in different European contexts. With a shared curriculum and regular meeting times, you'll be able to grow in fellowship with your Cohort counterparts across the continent.
