After volunteering and then working in the (university) Student Ministry for over 8 years, I now use my experiences to support staff and meet administrative needs within all of the Austrian ministries. I have also taken on the role of trainer and coach to staff serving across Europe. In the context of partner development, I work with teams to develop their ministries’ financial self-sustainability in local team ministry partnerships.

Since none of my colleagues live in or near my city of residence (Linz), I need to travel frequently to Vienna or other places across western Europe where I am coaching and supporting staff. Please pray for protection during these flights and trips, guidance and comfort in the times when my husband and I are apart, and well-functioning technology (such as Skype) when I do distance coaching and work from home.
As I coach, train and support the missionaries who are working on the field within our national ministries, please pray that the topics we discuss and work on will bless them and free up resources so that more Europeans will learn who Jesus is through our organisation.
