Zoltan Vekas
Baptist Pastor
1949-2010

Zoltan Vekas was born in a believing Baptist family in a mainly Hungarian-speaking region of Romania. At a young age he dedicated his life to the Lord, and later became a pastor within the Hungarian Baptist community of Romania.

Married with Erzsebet (Elisabeth) Vekas, they had a daughter and 2 sons. Their older son died at the age of ten month.

Since the 1990 re-foundation of the Hungarian Baptist Convention of Romania he was member of the Executive committee, then vice-president, responsible for press, and for 12 years editor in chief of the Szeretet monthly newspaper. As a representative of the Hungarian Baptists of Romania, he took part at many European Baptist events. He was supporting also the EBWU work through his wife and through personal involvement.

His utmost goal was leading souls to Christ.
