Marcus Rose, Church Planter in Berlin

Growing up in East Germany, Marcus Rose saw Jesus work in his family and in the country. When he was fifteen, he felt a call to ministry while Germany was still divided by the wall. Four years later, Marcus and other believers went to schools around town to share the Gospel to people.

As Germany changed, Marcus experienced a crisis of faith. He wasn’t sure how to keep following God’s call. Eventually, in Thailand, he re-committed his life to God.

Since then, Marcus has been planting house churches and discipling believers in Germany and across Europe. He sees discipleship as an important part of ministry. He hopes to grow in boldness as he continues to obey Jesus and His call.
