MMP030: A Conversation with Connexxion Bonn Director, Anja Geilert

Welcome to Episode 30! This week’s conversation is with Anja Geilert.

Anja is the founder and director of Connexxion Bonn, a ministry to university students in Bonn, Germany.  Anja grew up in East Germany and didn’t hear the gospel until she was 20 years old, but after becoming a follower of Christ, she knew that there were more people in her circles of influence who needed to hear the good news.

THIS WEEK’S SPONSOR: The Antioch Project

The Antioch Project is a 5 year, ministry leadership training program developed by the 17:6 Network for men and women who feel called to full-time vocational ministry.  It provides participants hands on training and leadership skills development in a peer cohort under coaching.  Students can also earn a Masters of Divinity degree if they join the Antioch Immerse specialty track.
