Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. , and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded them, and I am with you always, to the end of the world. " -Matthew 28: 18-20

I am a staff worker of CYFES (the Association of Evangelical Students of Cyprus), which helps university students to share and live the good news of Jesus in everyday life. While studying Pharmacology and Medical Sciences in Cardiff, Wales, I was involved with IFES and international student ministry locally and through the church. After studying, I was taken to work full-time in student ministry with IFES. I love sharing Jesus with others, through living together and looking at the life of Jesus in the Bible. I really enjoy creating opportunities for encounters with Jesus through hospitality and doing crafts.
CYFES is a young and pioneering student movement, eager to grow and reach. The work is mainly among international students in this stage. The ministry is very relational, with a strong focus on sharing Christ through love and friendship, evangelizing and encouraging by example. We also participate in Bible studies with students who are interested in learning more about who Jesus is or what Christianity is all about. It is exciting to work together with people from different cultures and backgrounds in the unity of the Spirit, and to encourage each other as we build friendships and share the gospel with students from all over the world.
