AboutFamilyWorld › Germany

The Alliance has had a presence in Germany since 1975; ministries began in Berlin in 1997. Through church-planting efforts in former East Berlin and a church that was started to reach internationals as well as Germans, many lost people have encountered Christ and made a decision to follow Him. Unique friendship evangelism venues facilitate opportunities to introduce Christ naturally in conversations with those who previously have thought God to be irrelevant.

Freischwimmer, in partnership with German ecclesiastical leaders, is a church plant that lives out its mission to “be there for others” through creative Lego-brunches, home groups, and Sunday worship services. The Chinese Alliance Church, initially planted to reach Chinese students in Berlin, continues to have an impact through the students who return to China with the truth of Christ.

Alliance workers also are pushing ministry forward in northeast Germany. Partnering with local ministries, including a Christian café, and expanding the successful English Camp outreach, they desire to break through the spiritual apathy and darkness in this region with the Light of Christ.

Alliance personnel in Germany include those working in the Europe/Middle East Regional Office. Additionally, several couples serve third-culture kids at Black Forest Academy.
