I (Mark) grew up as Missionary Kid in the Netherlands. On a survey trip to Germany in 2008, we saw first-hand the need for the next generation of church leaders to be trained theologically and to see more churches planted. We arrived on the field in 2012 and worked with veteran missionaries, Jeff and Linda Brown, in Nuremberg. After three years, the church there sent us to Neumarkt to plant a new church. In 2018, we organized with a newly-formed core group and started a church with the assistance of and in fellowship with fellow Bavarian German sister-churches. It is exciting to see God work through a cooperation with a like-minded German pastor. It's our desire to see God glorified through the church here in Neumarkt as well as through the preparation of German believers in our theological training institute for ministry.
