Haus Edelweiss

  1. Jane Freitag

  2. Mary Zvara

  3. Pam Maranzano

will be traveling to Austria to serve at TCM’s Haus Edelweiss, September 8 – 21, 2019. TCM International Institute provides graduate-level Christian leadership training for pastors, teachers and other church leaders from over 44 countries in Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Haus Edelweiss is TCM’s main campus, where courses are held from March–November. After completing coursework and exams online, students come to Haus Edelweiss for a 10-day session of intensive training and practical application with their professors. Haus Edelweiss has a full-time staff of 10 people. But when a session begins, the Haus becomes a bustling campus with up to 130 students, professors and translators. To serve this influx of people, 14-16 Short-Term Workers are needed for Food Services (preparing 3 meals a day for up to 150 people), Guest Services (housekeeping, laundry), Maintenance (buildings and interior), and Groundskeeping (mowing, trimming, tending flower beds). Jane, Mary and Pam will join other Short-Term Workers from various parts of the United States, who will be assigned to one of these work areas. As they serve, they will have the opportunity to meet and share meals with students from various countries, learn about how God is working through these disciple-makers, and share the love of Jesus with brothers and sisters in Christ from many parts of the world. Please pray for Jane, Mary and Pam as they GO in the name of Jesus. Pray for safe travel, health, energy, good rest, and that they will experience the love of Christ in a very special way!
