Stroch’s blog ”Die Schönheit des Simplexen” [“the beauty of the simplex”] is partly being translated into English and Spanish. There you will be able to read some of the theological insights of the pastor and preacher.
The JFI-financial team says a sincere “THANK YOU”, to all who have supported the supraregional level of the Jesus-Freaks-movement financially in the last year.
The heartcoreband Obadja has broken up, according to a statement by Dominik, Julian and Robby, (you can read about this on the Obadja-hompage) because band member Frede has joined the Wort+Geist-movement (word-and-spirit-movement). On the Obadja-Myspace-page Frede confirms the breakup. The new album will be released despite this development because the songs were recorded before the breakup.
The deaconry team, which is part of the new leadership team for Jesus Freaks Germany has been elected on May 23rd 2009 at the Willo Freak in Borgentreich by all regional and section leaders present. The deaconry team consists of a managing-committee and an overview team, called Ü-Team [overview team, in German – Übersichtsteam]. They have been initiated and blessed together with the rest of the leadership team made up of the regional and section leaders. So the new leadership team does not only consist of three people, as it used to, but about 35 people.
After 15 years in the leadership of the Jesus Freaks movement, Mirko S.has solemnly been released from his office. The participants of Willo Freak blessed him good-bye and wished him very well for the future. Martin Dreyer, founder of the movement, honoured Sander as an enduring and very creative leader with a great talent for organisation. In return for his work, some members of the movement handed him a voucher for a visit to his favourite distillery in England. To get there from the airport, he will be granted to drive a rented Jaguar – an old dream of his.

Every year there's Christmas, Freakstock and our cosy family reunion, also known under the die hard name of Willo Freak. And because 2009 definitely is a year, it's happening again from May 21st thru 24th:
Willo Freak in Borgentreich near Kassel, a new, grand venue with a very own bed for everyone! And all this for cheapish 60 EUR for participants and 30 EUR for volunteers.
Freakstock motto 2009 “Cross your heart”
We are in the army now!
No, we did not become a paramilitary Festival. We found a new home in some old barracks. Because, let’s be honest, after 12 long and beautiful years between nice baroque towers, horse dung and tents on the Boxberg in Gotha it is time for something new. We were already able to sleepwalk from one tent to the next on the horse race, because we knew so well where the rocket club and the coffee tent was and honestly to build up your tent at the same place every time was also boring in the long run.
