Don and Cindy Roehrkasse moved to Hildesheim many years ago to establish a church in a country that is predominantly Lutheran and Catholic. In May 1993, Susan and Kyle Bratcher, with their son, Benjamin, joined the Rochrkasses in the work of the young church in Hildesheim. While most citizens are suspicious of religious groups, the church has grown from only a handful of people to an average of 35-40 meeting together on Sundays. They have developed an active youth group for teens and pre-teens and lead a number of retreats and seminars for families, women, and children. Don has also taken on the responsibility of organizing continuing education seminars with professors from the States. Cindy is receiving training in counseling, as many who come to the church are from broken homes.
The Roehrkasses and Bratchers spread the good news in northern Germany. Their main objectives are teaching the gospel in Hildesheim through individual and group Bible studies, firmly grounding our faith family and encouraging them in their own outreach, leading marriage seminars, providing marriage and family counseling, and reaching out to seekers through relationship and various activities. Erzählet unter den Heiden seine Ehre, unter allen Völkern seine Wunder. —Psalm 96:3.
