Life Church Liezen then and now.

Hilli & Ingo moved from Leoben to Liezen in 2000 as a young married couple after asking Gianni in which area he dreamed of having the next Life Church and so they started a Driving School to then start a Life Group in their home. Small Church services followed and by 2005 they were an established Life Church.

We work together with the local food bank „Die Tafel“ and they are well know and well respected business people in the town.
