Calvary Chapel Golgota Budapest


Phil Metzger is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Budapest, Hungary. He is also the director of Calvary Chapel Bible College and Conference Center Europe, which is located in Vajta, Hungary. In addition to his teaching responsibilities at the college, Phil is involved in serving various churches across Eastern Europe, Ethiopia and Nigeria. He is originally from Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, where he served in the youth ministry as a youth pastor. After serving stateside, Phil moved to Moscow, Russia in 1992, and worked as a missionary there for 7 months. Then in 1998, Phil moved to Hungary, and has been serving in various cities throughout Hungary ever since, beginning as an assistant pastor at a new church plant in Esztergom, Hungary, and then planting and pastoring two Calvary Chapels in Kaposvár and Sárbogárd, Hungary, and now currently in Budapest. Phil and his wife Joy have four beautiful children: Niki, Karina, Judah and Hannah.


Our heart and ministry are focused on making disciples and seeing the church grow in quality and quantity to impact the world for Christ. We would like to see more churches planted in Hungary and beyond in order to bring the Word of God to the lost.
