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.
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!
Here are four ways you can be a part of the Brinegars’ team:
- You can follow their blog and subscribe to their newsletter so that you can provide them with ongoing prayer support.
- You can commit to supporting them financially.
- You can consider physically joining Zach and Carrie and the rest of the team in Vienna to aid them in their work. Contact Zach and Carrie to learn more.
- If you are a pastor or missions leader in your church, we would encourage you to get in touch with Zach and Carrie to see how they might be able to encourage your people for the cause of missions in Vienna and also to find out how you can be of service to them.
