What began as a dream is now becoming a reality! IBCB in cooperation with the IBC and the Nordic-Baltic LEAD team are in conversation with missionaries Bruce and Mary Boeckel about starting a new “IBC” church — an English-speaking, international church — in PB.
Why Prenzlauer Berg?
PB is an area growing through renovation; the area is being upgraded for Berlin’s growing future. It’s attracting many English speaking families because of two English-language schools (ca. 1,450 students combined)
in that neighbourhood. This area has had 27% growth in international residents in just the last three years, with some 60,000 internationals within easy reach of a church there.
Pray for Prenzlauer Berg!
§ Pray for us that we would make good contacts in Prenzlauer Berg, that God will grant us favour to find ways to do good in that community.
§ Pray that we learn the needs of the community so that we can raise up a church that meets needs and changes lives by God’s power.
§ Pray that God will prepare the hearts of English-speakers in East Berlin (both inter-nationals and local Germans) to receive the Gospel of Christ.
§ Pray that God will use us to raise up a congregation that would shine a light in the darkness.
