Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is one of the most important ministry of this fellowship.

Roger and Becky Buckland have been founders of this fellowship and
ministered here from 1995 till summer of last year 2012, when they
accepted to serve as Regional Director for Pacific in UPCI. Above all
it was specially their love for this nation and people which made
possible for Prague fellowship to be established.

Jaromir and Misa Zumar want to continue in this ministry to poeple.
They themselves understand and experienced, being a converts
of Bucklands, how important is to be led by poeple who are worthy
to follow. It´s their desire to see poeple changed and built upon
Biblical principals, God´s love, truth and love of this fellowship.

Devotion of the month

Our thoughts mold us. Big ideas produce big people, while shallow thinking results in shallow people with shallow character. "For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also (Matt. 6,21). The Bible is correct, our thoughts make us what we are! Right thinking is of inestimable value. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bear bad fruit in our lives, and every person is his own gardener. If we think morally high, we will live morally high. Whether our lives are full and helpful, or cruel and hurtful, depends entirely upon our thoughts. Our though life determines both our character and our conduct. The mystic chamber of our thought life is where personality evolves, develops, and is disciplined.

Who were Roger and Becky Buckland

Roger and Becky Buckland have been leaders of MLS from its foundation in 1995 till 2012 when they receieved appoitment to serve as Regional Director for Pacific. When they arrived to Prague, they have already had long term experience in ministry. After five years of pastoring in the United States, they received a missionary call and appointment to the Philippine Islands in 1984. They spent 9 years overseeing approximately 380 churches on the island of Mindanao, laboring as the president of the Apostolic Institute of Ministries in Davao City, and serving on the Executive Board of the United Pentecostal Church (Philippines).

In August 1993 they felt God´s calling to come to serve people in Czech Republic and Slovakia. During their twenties years of ministry they really left big part of their heart here while they were building this fellowship step by step. We will forever be grateful for their lots of sacrifices.

They have two married sons who are also
actively involved in ministry, pastoring in the United States.
