Stefanie Wanner

Hey! My name’s Steffi. I’m a FOCUS missionary serving in Vienna, Austria.

Where I serve

I am really excited to serve my second year as a missionary in my neighbour country at the University of Vienna, Austria. Coming from Bavaria in the south of Germany, Austria has been dear to my heart for quite a time. I am so much looking forward to meeting the students of Vienna and get to know all the beautiful places of the city.

My Story

As a teenager I was introduced to the person of Jesus Christ and fell more and more in love with him. After my graduation I spent a lot of time in a non-denominational House of Prayer in prayer and worship and experienced that Jesus on His throne in heaven is worthy of all our worship. But after a time I realized that His desire is also to be the King of my heart. Since then I am learning how beautiful He leads, He loves, He heals and He challenges me.

My heart to share what I recieved grew but I had no idea how to do that. At a FOCUS conference I finally got to understand how everybody is called to mission and how I personally could live that out in my life no matter what my profession or stage in life is. I am so happy to be able to live that out the next years as a missionary with FOCUS and teach others the same.
My dream is to see the Church and culture in Europe changed through a new generation of catholic leaders in every part of society. And above all I wish that many many students will experience and recieve the love of Jesus Christ.

Your Impact

Jesus sent his disciples never alone on a mission. When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this and walk with me. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
