Clayton and Mel have been in the Czech Republic since September 2012. Up until January 2016, they were serving the international students studying at Palacky University in Olomouc.
Friday night is the hub of activity for the week when the students meet to study the Bible, share dinner and time relaxing together. A typical Friday has over 30 students meeting in 5 small groups. In partnership with the local Baptist and Brethren churches, the students and some local Czechs meet together for an English service every month.
Since February 2016, Clayton and Mel have been based in Prague, where Clayton is part-time Associate Pastor at the International Baptist Church of Prague. They continue to oversee the international student work in Olomouc and return there every month to meet with the student leaders for training.
