GERMANY – New Life Church Germany launched their new campus in Frankfurt on October 15, 2017! Seasoned missionaries and church planters Pastor Brian Weaver and his wife Janine began recruiting people for the new campus more than 18 months ago. The passionate group began praying, vision casting, holding training sessions, starting a small group, and networking with the community. Then came October 15th.
Approximately 120 people came to celebrate with the Weaver’s team! Many new faces experienced New Life Germany for the first time. “With so many churches struggling to grow in Germany, we are humbled at such a wonderful first Sunday,” shared Pastor Brian. “We are excited at such wonderful first celebration service. The presence of the Lord was there and it was definitely a celebration.”
The following Sunday the word spread and eighteen new people came to the service.
Frankfurt is the second campus for New Life Germany. Their first location in Oberursel, a Frankfurt suburb, is also moving forward. More than 100 men, women and children came to their new facility to celebrate on October 8th! Reflective of this month’s events, Pastor Brian expressed, “God is truly moving…”
One of the One Focus Network’s core values is church planting. With the local church being the representation of Christ in the community, we consider it essential that every community has the opportunity to have culturally appropriate and indigenized forms of church planters in their midst. We are so excited to see what God is doing through New Life Germany!
