Meet the Impacters | Joschi


IMPACT is a one-year full-time training, development and service programme designed to change your life and build the church. It is a great way to receive biblical training, discover and develop your gifts, grow in character, get involved church planting and serve God in the local church. Impact students are based in a local church and spend time often focussing on a specific project such as youth evangelism, the prophetic culture or students and volunteering in the church. Impacters also receive biblical training through one of our Into the Word (LINK) training bases, which is a great chance for them to grow in the biblical knowledge, whilst getting involved practically too. They also have several mission days throughout the year, which is a great chance to get involved with church community, whether that be on the streets or in a local church plant. Our students grow dramatically in relationship with God, and are already getting stuck in to church life.

During the next few weeks we will be sharing a little bit about each of our Impact students and what areas of church they are involved in…

Meet Joschi:

Joschi comes from Germany and chose to do a gap year here in the UK.  Joschi is based in the Wildwood Church in Stafford alongside Lisa.

Joschi’s main responsibility is to running different social groups for teenagers and the youth in the church, organising events such as the themed event ‘Superhero’s of faith’.

Joschi enjoys the training given alongside his year and the fact that it is connected to the impact training means that he will not only grow in the work he does but also in his own personal, intimate relationship with him and the way he reads the word which is really enjoyable!

‘After I had finished my A Levels in Germany I had absolutely no idea what to do, but I remembered a pastor in England who once told me that there was an opportunity to do a gap year in their church. So, I prayed and asked God to see if The Wildwood Church was the right place to go, asking that everything else would just fall into place… and it has! I’m looking forward to all the challenges that will come and all the opportunities to learn more about God and the bible (and the weird English culture!)’
