Björn and Brita, parents of 5 adult children and 14 grandchildren, are missionaries from Germany and have lived in Marseille, France since 1992. They serve the Lord in several domains:
Apostolic Leadership: Björn & Brita are the founders of EPP Church (Église Protestante le Panier), which today has 4 campuses and 6 church-planting initiatives with around 500 members. In 2019, leadership of EPP was passed to the next generation and Bjorn became an apostolic advisor, set free to launch and develop other networks, movements, and church planting projects. Brita is a certified coach and therapist. She has developed the counselling department of EPP and serves in many places by training churches and leaders for a healthy and balanced life.
Network Leadership : Björn started the church network Crossing Waves in 2019. Today, 100 churches in 25 nations are part of the network. As a church coach, Björn helps churches both in and out of the network to flourish.
Church Planting: In order to see thousands of churches planted, leaders have to be trained. As the Director of Training of DCPI Europe (Dynamic Church Planting International) Björn is responsible for over 250 church-planting trainers. Together as a couple, Björn & Brita organise church-planting schools and help church-planting initiatives in many nations of the French speaking world in addition to France.
Your support will allow them to equip people and ministries to advance God’s kingdom in France and beyond!
