This episode’s guest is from Novi Sad, Serbia. Bera Beredji grew up in former Yugoslavia in a family that strongly believed in the Communist ideology. His father even worked for the Communist party at one point. But when civil war broke out in the 1980s, Bera stopped believing in Communism and turned to anarchism, punk music and the use of alcohol and drugs for meaning in his life.

But the punk movement didn’t provide any lasting comfort for Bera. His young adult years were full of constant pain. However, that all changed when a friend invited him to church during Christmastime. Bera was touched by the music, the people, and the pastor’s story about waking up every day with a smile on his face.

Bera wanted to have that kind of peace in his life. The next time he was in the punk club, craving alcohol, he prayed to God – and in that moment God set him free from his addiction. Bera would go on to introduce others to Christ, get involved at church, and work his way up to becoming a pastor. Today, he’s the pastor of the largest evangelical Church in Serbia and he also does homeless outreach and drug rehab work.

Bera Beredji is truly an example of how “Changed Lives Change Lives.” He has great wisdom to share about what it means to say “Yes” to God and be obedient in our service to Him.
