District Apostle Krause appointed to lead the Church in northern and eastern Germany

With the retirement of District Apostle Wilfried Klingler on Sunday, 19 June 2016 the largest District Apostle Area in Germany has come into being. The former districts of Northern and Central Germany have merged under the new name New Apostolic Church Northern and Eastern Germany.

In the divine service on Sunday, 19 June 2016 in Hanover in Germany, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider put District Apostle Rüdiger Krause in charge of this new area.

At the conclusion of the divine service, the Chief Apostle prayed with the congregation: “Together we pray for District Apostle Krause and his new commission. Dear God, give him strength! Bless him! Bless his co-workers, bless the Apostles, the Bishops, the ministers who help him. Bless every single congregation you have entrusted to him, and may the bride be completed also here. Make Your blessing visible!”
