Jesse and Erica McCallister
Serving in Berlin, Germany
In 2011, we came to Europe for the first time as part of a short-term effort working among immigrants and refugees in Athens, Greece. This experience ignited a desire in our hearts to live and serve among those who are coming to Europe in search of hope and a new beginning. After serving for a brief period of time in Greece, our family transitioned to Germany in 2015 where we have been ever since.
Where We Work
Berlin, Germany: Capital city and home to 3.7 million people representing over 180 countries. Berlin’s status as a historically significant and influential city draws people from all corners of the world, making it diverse in every sense of the word. That diversity is one of the reasons why, along with Berlin’s own recent history as part of former East Germany, the city is often referred to as “the Atheist capital of Europe”. Many opportunities to bring a message of peace, hope and reconciliation abound in a wonderfully complex and diverse city like Berlin, especially among the large numbers of people who have recently to Germany. Our vision is to see lives transformed through discipleship and multiplying churches planted across the city, bringing the message of hope in Jesus Christ to many across our city.
