For many years, Dr. Potter taught at San Francisco Baptist Seminary while serving as an assistant pastor here at Manor and later at Calvary Baptist Church in Alameda. But when the seminary closed its doors in 1991, David and Jean found themselves seeking the will of God as to where they might serve Him next.
The answer came through a trip to Hungary to visit their daughter, who was serving as a short-term missionary there. The Potters applied to Baptist World Mission and were accepted as missionaries in 1997. That same year, Manor Baptist Church undertook support of their ministry. Two years later, they were on the field full-time.
Their work is to train national leadership to plant new churches. They are involved in almost every aspect of the work at Bible Baptist Church of Pecs, including children’s work, Sunday school, junior church, youth work, music and preaching. Five Hungarian men have answered the call to preach, and David has been instrumental to their training for the work they do. He and Jean are available to encourage and aid them as they expand their outreach.
