My name is Andy Kohlmann and I’ve been working with Word of Life since october 2001.
I work in IT and administration, and also support the team as a guest teacher at WOLBI Germany at Lake Koeris and with camp activities such as archery for school classes.
I was born into a non-Christian family in south Germany. During my apprenticeship as a carpenter, I got to know Jesus and accepted him as my savior and was baptized. After that I attended the 3-year Bible School in Brake (Comparable to a BA in Theology). This was followed by an one year internship in an Evangelical Free Church in Kaiserslautern.
In 2001 Andy Wenzel, the former Director of Word of Life Germany asked me to become his assistant. From 2009 to 2020 I was a member of the management team of Word of Life Starnberg.
I’m married to Rachel and we have a daughter: Sara.
