For the last twelve years, Zach and Carrie Brinegar have proclaimed the message of Jesus’ love to those who have never heard the gospel, first in Northern Asia. Now, with God’s direction, they are moving to Vienna, Austria to plant a church in a city whose population of 1.8 million people is 25% atheist and only 0.5% evangelical.
The most recent article on their website, Never Say Never, tells the story of how the Lord took a couple who never saw themselves as church planters and yet over time led them to believe that church planting is the most effective way of spreading the gospel — to the point that now they are obviously passionate about planting a church for Him among the unreached.
Perhaps you will see the same exciting strands of God’s work in their lives that I do as I read the story of how God called them to Vienna. As you read, look for the mentions of China, the Mandarin language, students in Vienna, Hans, and young people.
If you have read our pillar articles (which can be reached through the tabs at the top of this website), you know that our conviction is that all believers should be part of a team seeking to reach the unreached. Some will go, some will pray, some will provide financial support, some will provide logistical support.
The ministry of the Brinegars represents an opportunity for you to be part of a church-planting team in Vienna, Austria through at least two of those avenues as the Brinegars, together with their two children, raise support for their work in Vienna:
You can follow their blog and subscribe to their newsletter so that you can provide them with ongoing prayer support.
You can provide them with financial support.
We would encourage you to learn more about the Brinegars’ ministry and consider if God is calling you to be part of a team dedicated to reaching the unreached in Vienna, Austria!
