Missions Moment

Christian & Sheryl Andresen

Location: Berlin, Germany

  • They have served in Germany for 24 years
  • As of 2021, they are empty nesters
  • Their goal each year is to live out 1 Corinthians 10:31: do all for the glory of God in their church, ministries, and home.

Hey KBC,

Let's catch up with missionaries Christian & Sheryl Andresen, serving the Lord in Berlin. They are very busy, "but the Lord is faithful, and we love serving Him here in Germany."

Christian leads and teaches Pastoral Theology and Biblical Counseling at the European Bible Training Center (EBTC). He also serves in their local church as an elder and preaches as part of the pastoral team.

Sheryl teaches Sunday School, leads Women's Ministry, and disciples women through Mommy & Me classes. She also opens her home to visitors, extending hospitality and corrects homework for EBTC.

Christian and Sheryl are now empty nesters with eight grandchildren! Philip & Heather have one daughter, Marco & Katrina have four children, and Stephanie & Daniel have three children. Elizabeth & Jonathan were married in January of 2021.

How is the ministry going?

"Great! Even during the pandemic and with so many restrictions, ministry is continuing through Zoom and Online classes. New ministry involves Christian mentoring and overseeing GMI missionaries in Europe. A new online class was offered this past year through EBTC, and it's called Bible Survey Express. Of the 66 students who signed up for the class, 60 finished reading through each book of the Bible, writing chapter headings with book summaries in five months!"

What are your priorities?

"Discipling men and women, and bring them to maturity in Christ. (Eph. 4:14-16) This is don't through systematic training at EBTC, and through training and mentoring at church. Also shepherding the younger missionaries on various fields in Europe."

Message for KBC

"We are so thankful for this church in Keyport! You have been so faithful, and we are grateful for your financial support and for praying for us these many years."

Prayer Support
  • Pray the first week: Read insert, and pray for Christian & Sheryl, for their marriage and ministries to thrive.
  • Pray the second week: For Christian at EBTC, to continue teaching and equipping people for ministry and the mission field. And for God's protection and blessing on his ministry to mentor younger missionaries in Europe.
  • Pray the third week: For Sheryl, in her teaching and mentoring ministries. Pray for her hospitality ministry, that the light and love of Christ will shine through her and in her home.
  • Pray the fourth week: Pray for fresh faith and strength for Christian & Sheryl to live out their goal, "To do all for the glory of God."

Persecution Profile

Reverend Silas Yakubu Ali

Killed: September 2021

Reverend Ali left on Saturday for Kafanchan, and was not heard from again until his body was found on Sunday. It appears he was attacked to death with a machete. Please pray for his Church and other Christians in Nigeria. In August, the Inter-Society released a report about Christians in Nigeria in the last 12 years: 43,000 were killed by Islamic radicals; 18,500 disappeared; 17,500 churches attacked; 2,000 Christian schools attacked; 10 million Christians uprooted.

Please pray for our family overseas.
