My name is Simon and I’m from a small town in the center of Germany. It’s always been my desire to see God’s good idea of our world manifest physically and spiritually. And somehow, He graciously led me to a place where I can encourage both. After serving in the Middle East for four years as an English teacher and disciple maker, I felt called to move to Berlin where I work for two Agape ministries now.
Global Aid Network (GAiN)
is the humanitarian arm of Agape in Germany that seeks to bring about new perspectives for people in need. People like Arman from Armenia, who currently has a rusty container to call home. Through the help of GAiN he received a gym bag full of school supplies from a student in Berlin which communicated to him and his family: ‘You are not forgotten!’
My work with GAiN focuses on:
- aid acquisition for our 15 project countries & mobilisation of volunteers
- educational work on humanitarian aid in schools
is all about relationships. Relationships with people like Stephen, who, despite studying in a highly secularised context like Berlin, became passionate for Jesus through reading the Bible together. He is now launching a church planting movement in his home country in South Asia.
My work with MyFriends focuses on:
- investing in relationships with unchurched people
- training believers in a missional lifestyle in the postmodern age
