Summer Camp
This camp is a German church-sponsored week-long
event for kids age 9-13.
It is an excellent way to allow them to experience
the love of Christ through dedicated believers.
And….it gives the on-field staff a chance to encourage
and enhance relationships for year-long ministry.
(see below for more details)

Family Festival
This is an opportunity to partner with the
World Witness missionaries and the local German churches
with their annual outreach ministry.
It is co-sponsored by local businesses and professionals.
(see below for more details)

College-age or older.
Volunteers should be mature Christians who are ready
and willing to minister, and who have experience
sharing their faith in a difficult cross-cultural situation.
While all volunteers must not be from the same church,
we would prefer to have volunteers
coming from no more than 3 various churches.
That way they can pray, prepare and plan
with others before arriving in Berlin.

You will be able to use your gifts and talents in the area of
music, drama, teaching, crafts and sports, as well as,
being available to help with snacks, set-up and clean-up.

Approximately 14 volunteers are needed to serve in some/all of the following ways:

Workshop Leaders:
-Responsible for organizing and leading creative workshops during camp
-Workshops last 90 minutes and have 8-14 participants
-Each workshop is offered 4 times so that multiple campers can take part
Previous workshops included: tie-dying, dancing, acrobatics, woodcarving, etc.

 Free Time Activities
-Organizing games like soccer or dodge-ball or even introducing
baseball or American football!

Camp Tear-Down Crew
-After camp all of the tents and restroom facilities, etc. need to be taken down
and stored away for the following year.

 Prayer Team
-Each evening while campers and counselors gather for a large group meeting,
we would like to have a team of folks interceding for them.

 Relationship Building
-Many kids already know some English.
You will have the opportunity to befriend kids this week and share
your faith as you eat and play together.

-Countless other ways to serve could include:
life-guarding, cleaning and building benches and other items
out of wood with the kids

Spiritual leader (1)
In addition we are also looking for one person to serve our short-term volunteers
by providing spiritual leadership (devotions for the team & prayer for individuals, etc.)

E-mail Shelia Osborne
for an application.



90% of the German population claim to be atheists. Only 5% of Protestants and 18% of Catholics are active participants in church life. Overall only 3% of German men are involved. The Church is widely perceived as irrelevant and marginalized. There is sometimes open hostility toward anything Christian.
The majority of Protestant churches have lost their identity, purpose and income after thousands of people opted out of paying an optional church tax. The occult, alcoholism, Satanism and a New Age worldview are prominent. The Muslim population has grown to over 3 million from over 40 nations. Islamic organizations have intensified their activities and there are now over 2,200 mosques or prayer houses.
