In the midst of a sparkling, lively city, 97% of the residents of Budapest are living lives of quiet desperation, having not yet heard and responded to the gift of new life offered by Jesus Christ.

God has given the local church a key role to play in His work in the advance of this good news, and in Budapest, we are committed to helping establish and encourage transformational local churches. We’ve seen that many Hungarians are increasingly open to spiritual things, eager to experience Christian community, especially when it is expressed in a form that has relevance for them. And we believe that true life-change will come about as followers of Jesus penetrate neighborhoods and communities, acting as salt, light, and leaven, living out their faith in the spaces God has prepared for them on the lanes and cultural highways of Hungarian society.

We’ve been blessed to welcome many young adults to our team in recent years, and we’ve seen that God’s plans are often to do just as much or more in you as He would do through you during the time you spend in Budapest. Through the APEX program, you can spend seven weeks of your summer serving with the ReachBudapest Team – its an investment that will impact you for a lifetime!

Not only will you grow in community with other members of the APEX team, but you’ll experience community with the full-time missionaries on our team. Your time in Budapest will give you the opportunity to discover what it means to live out your life as a follower of Jesus in a highly secular urban setting in the heart of Europe, and explore what it is like be involved in full-time, cross-cultural ministry. Ministry placement opportunities will include outreach to children and teens, working with immigrants, volunteering in a community center, and participating in the life of a Hungarian church.You'll live together with the rest of the APEX team within a ministry and community center operated by the ReachBudapest team in Kelenföld, a neighborhood in Budapest’s 11th district.

Ours is a huge city with significant needs, and seeing it reached for Christ is something beyond the work of any one mission organization or church or denomination. So we're working together with others believers from various backgrounds, linking arms out of a desire to see a gospel movement gain traction. Come and spend the summer being a part of this important work!
