A Vision for LifeA ministry of Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe



A Vision For Life is a discipleship program of solid Bible teaching, worship, Christian service, and many outreach opportunities.

AVFL is located in Budapest, Hungary and is staffed by pastors and missionaries with a heart to reach the lost and teach the found. Each student will be in multiple Bible classes throughout the course of the week.  Our heart is that the lessons learned in class will be put into action on outreaches.  We will participate on various outreaches throughout Hungary and other neighboring countries. It will be 40 days you will remember forever.

This allows the group to develop closer friendships, and grow in their understanding of serving in different cultures and types of ministries.  Don't miss out on a life-changing summer!

How much spending money should I bring?

What's the best way to access money while in Hungary?

  • The easiest and most efficient method to obtain money is via ATM.  That said, in the past many parents have elected to do a joint account where they can add money as needed.  Please note, most banks charge an ATM transaction fee and have a maximum daily withdrawal amount.  In order to prevent your card from being deactivated, please notify your bank and let them know that you will be making international withdrawals/transactions.

  • In order to determine whether you will need a converter or adapter: 
    • Check the transformer on your electronic or electric item to identify the range of electricity.
    • If it indicates 110-240v, an adapter is sufficient
    • Failure to use the proper conversion accessory will result in malfunction.

What personal items should I bring?

  • We will email you a suggested packing list. But please note that all students are asked to bring a 2-person all-weather tent which is good for rain and windy weather, a warm sleeping bag, and a good raincoat.
