What they love about LIFE Church:

The passion, the enthusiasm, the love for God and people, the expression and the joy. They have a passion to pioneer and to bring God‘s love close to the people.

What they love about Austria:

That it is a breathtakingly beautiful country.

Must knows about them:

Besides leading & pastoring the church, Heide is a Job-Coach and loves hunting for mushrooms in the forest, while Hans is a Graphic & Web Designer and hobby musician.

Short blurb about the church: (how long has it been there, what are they doing to reach people etc)

LIFE Church Hermagor was founded with the help of LIFE Church Villach. We moved there from Vienna as a couple in 2009 and took over the Church leadership in 2011. One Characteristic of our church is that we have many strong and committed women, but hardly any men. Besides church services, we serve our community through monthly columns in the newspaper, social commitment and cooperation with the Hermagor social welfare office and regular ladies nights. A specific prayer request would definitely be for more men to come to faith and join our church and for our own church building.
