Laszlo and Michelle Hatvani-
 – College and Career Ministry-
Laszlo and Michelle have been married for twenty-nine years. God has blessed them with four children and two grandchildren. They have served in various church ministry posions over the past twenty-two years. As their oldest children grew into adulthood, they saw the need in the church for teaching and discipling young adults to know Christ and make Him known. They followed God’s call and began serving and leading a small group of men and women in Bible Study and hosting monthly fellowship events to
deepen and strengthen bonds in this small community. Laszlo and Michelle’s desire is for young adults to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ so that they can live a life that honors and pleases the Lord.  If you are a young adult in college or one who is working full-time and want to know more about this ministry, please email Laszlo at lih6732@hotmail.com.
