God's mission - your mission?

Gmünd is a small town with around 5600 inhabitants in the Waldviertel region of Austria on the Czech border. Few people in the area have found a living relationship with Jesus. A small church shines here like a torch and carries the gospel into the Waldviertel. We want to support them and make Jesus known – will you join us?

Come with us to Gmünd on an adventure with God! Together we will encounter God and bring the good news of Jesus to the people of Gmünd. Learn simple and creative ways to share about Jesus in personal conversations, or use your musical skills or poetry to touch hearts.

The outreach

Part of the outreach team are musicians who will touch hearts with music in small concerts at various locations and share about Jesus with short stories, testimonies or poetry. Are you a musician or do you write poetry? We are looking for you!

The rest of the team will approach people with creative conversation starters to have honest conversations about life and to testify to Jesus as our Saviour. There will be training sessions at the beginning of the outreach where you will learn how to share the gospel in a creative and understandable way and get people excited about Jesus! Are you passionate about people being saved? We are looking for you!

We want to tell even the youngest children about Jesus' love for us with a creative children's programme. Do you enjoy working with children? We are looking for you!

Together we will worship God daily and seek his presence before we invite people to experience his presence.
