Marc and Laura Smith

Marc and Laura have been serving in Germany. Laura is an American and Marc is from Germany. Laura has been serving in Germany since 2014. Marc and Laura met in 2018 while working in the same local outreach in Freiburg, Germany. A few years later, a relationship developed and they got married, with a vision to serve and live God's Kingdom together.

Laura uses her music training to teach and lead worship, as well as to connect with and reach classical musicians. Marc studied IT and seeks to live his faith in the workplace with his colleagues. Together, we have a heart for discipleship and hospitality, meeting with people from all walks of life and sharing our lives as followers of Jesus in the hope of spurring others on in the same.

Despite a long history of Christianity in Germany, there are currently many people in Germany who know little to nothing about Jesus, and we want to share the Good News of who He is and His resurrection with them. We have also found among believers, that many have limited knowledge of the Bible, and we want to help them grow in this and in living out their faith and callings.

Germany: The poster child of post-Christian

Although Germany is known as the birthplace of the Protestant Reformation, it is a country in need of the Gospel. Germany is what many would refer to as "post-Christian".

The German news channel Deutsche-Welle has reported record numbers of Germans leaving the Lutheran and Catholic state churches over the last three years. Deutsche-Welle also reports that out of those who do still belong to the church, extremely few actually attend services. Only 4.3% of Catholics report going to church most Sundays. Germany needs Jesus.

In all of the work that we do, our ultimate goal is to make disciples of Jesus. We believe that achieving this goal will also lead to future church plants and reform in the community.

Support our ministry

It is no secret that from the very beginning of the church Christians have taken an active role in being missionaries and sending missionaries. Yet not all are called to be missionaries. (We are all called to make disciples)

Being a missionary is a calling, but have you ever considered that sending missionaries is also a calling? So what is your calling? Are you the missionary or a missionary sender?

All Kontaktmission staff live on support, meaning we believe that God will provide for his mission, through his church. We would ask for support for our student center. We have rent, electricity, and then general supplies in running the space and serving coffee. We are fully supported missionaries and can only live and serve here as long as we have support to sustain us.

Please consider joining our sending team by partnering with us in prayer and partnering with us financially.

Prayer Needs

1) For God to bring fruit as we talk about faith with seekers.
2) For people to grow in hunger for God's Word and seeing it as relevant to apply to their lives.
3) For Laura's project of establishing a classical musician group of believers in Freiburg to grow.
4) For us to hear and follow God's leading.
