Tobias & Esther Giersch
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Romans 12, 4 & 5
Esther (Austrian) and Tobias (German) live close to Villach, Austria.
Tobias has been simplifying the complex, and solving tech problems as part of ECM’s IT-Team since 2018.
Tobias moved to Austria for voluntary work during his gap year. Having met Esther he stayed to study Computer Science and Information Technology. He started working as a systems engineer for a larger tech company when God called him to use his gifts and knowledge in IT to serve mission in Europe. In his role he provides IT-helpdesk support for ECM’s workers, manages and improves the existing IT-Systems, and develops new solutions where needed. He also helps in facilitating ECM conferences.
Esther and Tobias both have a heart for the youth and younger generation. In local ministry Esther leads the mother's and toddler's group in their church. Tobias leads the teenager group and serves as deacon for the young generation, where he supports and encourages others in their ministry. Esther supports him in this.
Tobias is also involved in the Teabus ministry; an evangelistic outreach to young people in Villach and elsewhere.
They are parents of two, Enya born 2019 and Kaleb born 2021, who shortly after his birth went to be with the Lord.
