CHURCH PLANTING

MINISTRY TO THE DEAF

STUDENT OUTREACH

TRAINING LEADERS

Austria is known for its culture and music the world over. At the heart of Europe, its stunning scenery draws in large numbers of tourists, yet this beautiful country is spiritually empty. While the Catholic Church is in rapid decline, few look elsewhere for spiritual peace. Evangelicals total just over 40,000 people.


GBM has been involved in Austria for over thirty years. For much of this time we were supporting church planters. One of the churches planted continues, though the two other churches have merged into other local churches. There is a spiritual openness among young people, though the Austrian student work (ÖSM) is very small compared to the UK.
