Pastor Edgar Lüken

Encountering the greatness of God in the diversity of people is his passion.

He is married to Inke Johannsen and they have two children, aged 9 and 12. Edgar enjoys hot summer days, canoeing, vintage cars, football, glamping, and is a chocolate addict…

Associate Pastor Edward Owen
While on a missions trip to Zambia, Edward felt called into full time ministry and then went on to study applied theology at Moorlands Bible college in South England. He graduated in summer 2016 and is excited to be part of the ministry team here in Hamburg.

Originally from the UK, Edward has served in churches in South Africa, Zambia, England and Wales.

He has a heart to see people grow in their faith and is expectant for what God will do this coming year in and through him.

Edward’s passions are kayaking and classic cars. He is partial to a bit of ironing for relaxation. If you want to make Edward smile, just give him a cup of tea (milk no sugar).
Ministry Intern Rachel Lyons
After working in Germany as an au pair for 18 months, we are very excited to welcome Rachel Lyons as a ministry intern for 2016!
Rachel has a heart for worship and a passion to lead others into the presence of God. She began leading worship in children´s church in her home church in the States when she was in the fourth grade!
In her free time, Rachel loves to run, sing, workout, play piano and hangout with friends.
