IKE (Ifjúsági Keresztyén Egyesület in Hungarian) is an independent youth movement within the Transylvanian District of the Hungarian-speaking Reformed Church in Romania, which is linked to the International YMCA.
Working with local church-based youth groups, IKE provides leadership training for young people, while also organising and running a university students mission in three cities in Transylvania, national youth programmes, mission events, a summer youth festival, an advent youth worship festival and summer camps for young people.
IKE's main week to week ministry is carried out in the youth groups of the Reformed Church and its goals are to teach, train and inspire the young generation to seek and serve the Lord in Transylavania.
Our links with IKE are through Csaba Veres who is General Secretary of IKE.
This is Csaba's second four year mandate as IKE General Secretary, coordinating the team of staff in the national office in Kolozsvar (Cluj Napoca). Csaba also oversees the minstry in two other locations in Transylvania, namely Marosvásárhely (Tirgu-Mures) and Sepsiszentgyorty (Sfintu Georghe).
