Innsbruck, the capital of the Tirol province, is a beautiful university town, surrounded by majestic mountains and lush forests, with the beautiful Inn River running through the city. With over 135,000 inhabitants, Innsbruck has all the trappings of a big city, and yet it still maintains a small town feel. Sitting in the midst of the Alps, Innsbruck has hosted three Winter Olympics Games and still attracts sports enthusiasts year-round with its numerous hiking, mountain biking, climbing, skiing, and snowboarding routes.
Despite having a cross on every mountain peak and a church at the center of every village, most Austrians have lost true faith in Jesus Christ to religious tradition. Less than 0.5% of Austrians profess a faith in Jesus Christ & his finished work alone! “Mobilizing People for Jesus in Austria” is the mission of our Innsbruck team. This means we are working to help people not only to get to know Jesus, but also to live out his good purposes for their lives. Our vision is to see Austrians, especially youth & young adults become strong in faith and glorifying God with their lives and restoring spiritual vitality to Austria. (see Isaiah 61:1-4).
We are seeking people to join the university outreach ministry team, helping to reach and disciple students of all nationalities at the world-class university in Innsbruck. Prayer breakfasts, discipleship Bible studies, outreach events, etc. are part of the ministry. Our personnel should assist the ministry, build discipleship relationships with students, and help them connect with Christian communities.
Campus ministry experience would be great! Outgoing, friendly Self-starter, initiative, Ability to explain the Gospel and share your story
