REVEREND ALICE SZEMOK
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
This bible passage expresses the essence of my faith and life. No denomination will identify who or what I am but the living Christ who lives and works through me. Whenever God calls me I obediently accept my place in a new mission field where people need to know the Truth and the Message of God. That is who I strive to be vocationally and theologically.
In terms of relationships I am the daughter of parents who were teachers that worked in an orphanage; my older brother and I we were born and raised in Hungary during communism.
Together with Géza, my husband of over 25 years, we have 3 adult children; Dániel, Dóra and Benjámin. Géza and I met at seminary and continue to experience a wonderful, challenging journey through life. We moved to Canada in 2004 at the invitation of the United Church of Canada, having lived and served God for 12 years in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Moving to Miramichi in 2016 was a big change in our lives but we are thankful to God who has led us into such a nice community of people who are more than interested in God’s Word and Way.
