Ministry Description

About Stefan

"Full speed ahead" with the best employer in the world, God Himself! Since July 2018, I have been employed as the Head of Media Productions, Press Relations, Marketing and Communications in His "Word of Life" department at Lake Starnberg.

In 2012, I married my wife Anna-Lena. She is a primary school teacher but currently mostly at home with our three children Pauline, Josia and Frida. I did my journalistic training in 2006 at the Christian media house "ERF Medien" and worked there as a radio editor and presenter until 2018, when we made the decision together to go into full-time ministry.

This was definitely a huge step for us, which included to some extent giving up our families and circle of friends there. We are all the more grateful that God called us so clearly, making the decision ultimately easy. We then moved to a small village in rural Bavaria and love living here. Now I invest myself with all my passion in the media future of Word of Life in Germany, while at the same time as a family trying to be a ray of hope in our neighborhood, inspring people about Jesus and building up and supporting the church.
