On Mission In Germany

Frankfurt-Christmas-Choir

“In Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed the message of reconciliation to us. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, certain that God is appealing through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.”
2 Corinthians 5:19-20

Objective
Oxygen Choir’s objective is to support and encourage the work of local churches in their efforts to reach their local communities with the good news of the Gospel. Our presence and our performance enables these churches to draw the community into an experience that effectively provides opportunities to make contacts and to establish connections so that all may hear the Gospel.

Region

Our work will occur within the Rhineland-Palatinate state of Germany.
Rhineland-Palatinate is located in western Germany covering an area of 7,663 sq mi and a population of 4.05 million inhabitants. It is the seventh-most populous German state. Mainz is the state capital and largest city, while other major cities include Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Koblenz, Trier, Kaiserslautern, and Worms. Rhineland-Palatinate is surrounded by the states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, Baden-Württemberg, and Hesse. It also borders three foreign countries: France, Luxembourg and Belgium.
Our team will be staying in Kusel each evening. Each afternoon, we will travel to various locations approximately one hour from our base.
