Just because you think you know who Jesus is doesn’t mean that you know Him.
Going to a traditional, Sunday-morning church service is not a typical activity for most university students. The Agape campus ministry in Würzburg (Germany) wanted to challenge stereotypes and began hosting the Nightclub Church events in 2013. Huge initial success of events in November and December 2013 that welcomed more than 450 guests have motivated the team to continue. The idea of holding a modern church service for young people and university students in a nightclub setting is unique in all of Germany.
Watch this video clip to get a taste of what these events are like:
This non-denominational event, featuring live music and a selection of refreshments, takes place in the Posthalle in Würzburg. Recent event themes include “Look for happiness, find meaning! Your Masterplan for 2014” (featuring well-known television evangelist Pastor Ulrich Parzany as guest speaker) and “Islam, Christianity – isn’t it all just the same? Looking at the small but significant differences” (presented by a former Muslim who now believes in Jesus Christ).
Daniel Wild, university student and leader of the nightclub church describes the purpose of the gathering, saying, “We are excited about Jesus Christ, and we want to show people that God loves them too.”
Read (in German) what people are saying about the Nightclub Church:
Last Saturday morning, I woke up to the shouts and shrieks of children playing in the park below our apartment. Confused and a little annoyed, I shuffled sleepy-eyed to the window to see what the commotion was about.
Caradonna helped me put into words the process I was experiencing with God. Because we write a message on our bodies, it must be short and impactful. Caradonna helped me find words to convey my experience and encourage others through my message.
"Europe needs more Jesus." - Christian Pichler, speaker at Revive Europe.
