I am Assistant Professor for History of Religion and Missiology at the Augustana Theological Seminary of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Bavaria and I also work at the Department for Mission and Intercultural Studies of the Mission Eine Welt.
After researching traditional religions in Africa and the contextualization of the Gospel to the Maasai-people of Eastern-Africa(while serving from 1992-2000 as a lecturer in Tanzania): PhD 2000 "Maasai shaping Christianity, Heidelberg 2000 , I served at a local congretagion in Middle-Franconia/Bavaria, together with my wife Rev. Ulrike. We have five children.
Since 2005 I have been researching the meaning of migration and mission from a more global perspective in a certain network between Africa, Northern America and Europe, looking at its historical and performative dimensions. The publication and translation of my Habilitation-work is planned for 2010/11.
The title will be: "Pentecostal Movement between Fragility and Empowerment. The historically, performatively and worldwide organized Network around Nzambe Malamu". The Thesis has already been accepted by the Augustana Theological Seminary.
Fieldtrips to USA (2008), in Europe (2005-2009) and in Kenya, Tanzania (2009) and especially DR Congo (2007) - as well as concentrated research in German Migrant-Churches - helped me to figure out some suitable questions concerning the worldwide growing Pentecostal and Charismatic movement and its meaning for the established churches.
