Description

This Protestant Free Church is a church planting project with a team of Elders and a Pastor and his wife. Sixty percent of the members are from a migrant background. Defining points are that they love Jesus, believe the Bible is God's word, value fellowship, extend a welcome to all. They have evangelism at heart, wanting to reach out to all social groups, especially Muslims. Church services are in German with translation into different languages. Specific language home groups meet, but for a limited duration as the goal is to have everyone together. Goals: working with refugees from many lands (e.g. Iran, Iraq, Syria); mentoring church members from migrant backgrounds; offering discipeship; potentially giving German lessons; eventually mentoring new workers from overseas. Qualifications required: some German language ability; Arabic or Persian welcome; intercultural experience; spiritual maturity and church experience; a relational orientation; initiative.
