In a situation of growing interest in the religion of migrants, there are still few publications dealing with pentecostal and charismatic Christians from the global South and the churches they have been starting all over Europe. This ground-breaking study, based on extensive interviews conducted during a nine-year research period encompassing more than 100 churches, describes how pentecostal/charismatic migrant pastors live out their pastoral role, how they construct their missionary biographies, and how they conceptualize and practice evangelism. The result is a comprehensive portrait of an immigrant group which does not define itself as victimized and in need of assistance, but as expatriate agents with a clear calling and a vision to change the continent they now live in.

About the Author:

Rev. Claudia Wahrisch-Oblau, Dr. theol. (Heidelberg University), is Head of the Evangelism Department of the United Evangelical Mission. She has published a number of articles on pentecostal / charismatic migrant churches in Europe

Review:

"Immerhin kann sich durch die englische Publikation die Internationale theologische Wissenschaftsgemeinde ein Bild über die Verhältnisse in Deutschland machen und ihre Schlüsse ziehen." in: Moritz Fischer, Interkulturelle Theologie Vol. 1 (2010).

"Währisch-Oblau's book (...) makes an important contribution as a detailed and comprehensive study on Christian migration and Pentecostal/charismatic ministry from the global South to the North. (...) Her work critically evaluates the motivations and implications of this missionary endeavour, and lays a significant foundation for ongoing scholarship." Sara Fretheim, Mission Studies, Vol. 33.3 (2016).

"Es handelt sich um ein Werk von grundlegender und richtungweisender Bedeutung, auf dessen Konsultation niemand, der oder die sich mit dem Phänomen von christlichen Migrationsgemeinden aus dem globalen Süden in Europa beschäftigt, wird verzichten können. Wer mit dem bisherigen Engagement und den Publikationen von Claudia Währisch-Oblau im Bereich der Migrationsgemeinden in Deutschland vertraut ist, den oder die wird diese Einschätzung kaum überraschen. Die Dissertation ist nicht nur das Ergebnis einer zeitlich umgrenzten Feldforschung im engeren Sinne, sondern sie bildet gleichzeitig den vorläufigen Abschluss einer über zehnjährigen intensiven, kontinuierlichen wie Früchte tragenden Zusammenarbeit mit diesen Gemeinden im erweiterten Ruhrgebietsraum. Kaum jemand anderem wäre es möglich gewesen, eine solche Arbeit vorzulegen, setzt sie doch neben der akademischen Kompetenz der Forscherin wesentlich ein tiefes Vertrauensverhältnis zwischen ihr und den befragten Gemeindeleitern in der Migration voraus. Die Autorin vermag aus einem reichhaltigen Erfahrungsschatz zu schöpfen." Werner Kahl, Interdisziplinäre Arbeitskreis Pfingstbewegung, 2011.
