Ministry Description

Still in the early stages of development, the ministry of Word of Life in Austria already has been presented with tremendous opportunities to share the gospel of Christ. Pioneered in 1997 by Bobby Parshauer, Word of Life Austria is now fully recognized and incorporated by the Austrian government. The ministry is currently under the direction of Andy Wenzel of Word of Life Europe. Word of Life owns a property located near Villach in south-central Austria.
The ministry focuses on children's and family programs and aims to annually reach 2,000 people with a clear gospel message through camps, children's musicals, kids clubs, and other evangelistic outreaches.


Country Description

Austria's fame finds it's roots in the legacy of the Habsburgs once the most powerful dynasty in Europe, and in its extraordinary musical heritage with Mozart, Schubert, and Strauss. Located in the heart of Europe, its 83,850 square kilometers are known for breathtaking Alps, numerous lakes and forests, and picturesque towns and villages. Today, 61 per cent of Austria's 8.6 million people claim to be Catholic. However, statistics show that 80 percent have some relationship with the occult. The New Age movement, various Eastern religions, Jehovah Witnesses, and Mormons have gained a strong following throughout the country. The doors are wide open for Word of Life, as at least 80 percent of all gospel-preaching churches in Austria have no youth ministry.
