Germany

Germany is a country steeped in Christian history but over the last decades it has become a nation of materialism and secularism

Germany is a country of vibrant modern cities and sleepy villages. A country that has beautiful seas in the north and breath-taking mountains in the south. It is a country steeped in history, filled with medieval castles and historic kingdoms. 

It is a country that was broken by the horrors of the Second World War, but a country that found new life in the economic boom of the ‘60s and ‘70s. It was that economic boom that has made Germany one of the strongest economic powers of the 20th century. 

In Germany, a church building can be found in almost every village and town. In many villages the local church is the largest and most beautiful building, but most of these churches are empty and unused. Atheism, Esotericism and Materialism are the growing ‘religions’ in Germany. 

In 1972, OM began working in Germany. Since 1982, the OM home office in Germany has operated from a centuries old former mill in the town of Mosbach. The building also operates as a Christian conference center and accommodates the headquarter office of OM Ships. 

The OM team in Germany provides corporate services to help make missions possible. By taking care of the organizational and administrative tasks of the home office and conference center, this division makes ministry possible. 

OM also has a networking and mobilizing team in Germany. This team mobilizes Christians to get involved in missions. This is done by communicating OM’s message in numerous ways and by giving opportunities for short-term campaigns. 

Other OM teams in Germany seek to inspire and train for missions. There are teams that work among refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. Other teams plant churches, run a café to help build relationships, and host a short-term cross-cultural program for young adults called MDT Love Europe.
