Message from the HASKEWS
In the last ten years in Vienna we have planted a house church of 31 that is largely self-reliant and has increased in attendence by 61% since last year. We meet together every Sunday in our own facility (an apartment in the 3rd district). We have a men’s group who help guide and make decisions, men who are capable of teaching, and regular visitors. We also founded a non-profit organization with its own office space and programs that we use for outreach and to help make connections with the community.
Vienna is a city with 2 million people, yet there are less than 200 members of the Church of Christ. Increasing numbers of people continue to leave the Catholic church (the state religion), but remain interested in spiritual things. In addition, thousands of refugees that flooded Europe in 2015-2016 have received asylum and are settling into a normal life. There is still much ground to gain with the gospel! Because of our initial success and great need, we feel God’s will is that we stay in Vienna and continue to plant, as well as mentor, the existing church plant. We are currently in need of one-time support to help cover our salary for our long term commitment in Vienna and the forecasted weaker dollar this year.
One-time Need = $7,275
Use the button above or the links below and prayfully consider a one-time gift of $500 or $1,000. We are looking for both churches AND individuals who are interested in partnering with us.
Of course if you can commit to supporting us monthly or yearly, please let us know. We can set you up with automatic, monthly ACH donations if necessary.
Thank you and God bless!
