Austria is famous for its music, art and beautiful scenery, all things that can point to God's glory. However, Austrians need a personal faith in Christ. 75 percent of Austrians call themselves Christians, but 80 percent have been involved in the occult and only 3 percent of the younger generation attends church. Evangelical churches are small and few in number and pastors for these congregations are needed. MB Mission has been working in Austria for over twenty years. The vision for our Austrian churches is to see strong, motivated and spiritually vibrant national leaders rise up to serve.
- For missionaries Richard and Hazel Funk as they continue to provide mentoring, teaching and counsel for Austrian and German MB churches
- That Austrian MB congregations will find creative ways to reach their neighborhoods with the Gospel
- Pray that MB Mission workers will effectively train and disciple nationals to be strong leaders in their own country
