Ute and Frank Paul have three children. We belong to OJC, an intentional interdenominational community in Germany – sharing life, daily work, resources (see: www.ojc.de > english , > castellano). Our vision and mission embraces churches and society – but focuses on living and offering (mainly)to young people: friendship, a place of belonging, and a sense of direction in Jesus Christ. We believe that our strength as a fellowship lies in the dynamic combination of community living, intellectual and spiritual reflection, and social action.

For 18 years we were living in Argentina – collaborating a few years the Kairos foundation (friends and partners of our community) in the slum areas of Buenos Aires (www.kairos.org.ar). Afterwords we joined an international team of fraternal workers who are accompanying real independent indigenous churches in the Chaco area in northern Argentina. (See: Horst, Paul, Mueller-Eckhardt: “Misión sin conquista – acompañamento de comunidades indigenas autóctonas como estilo misionero alternativo”, BsAs, 2nda Ed. Kairos, 2011 (in german and english, frank.paul@ojc.de). Frank is also a member of the AVM-Alliance of Vulnerable Mission ( www.vulnerablemission.org ) trying to encourage others to lean on local strengths, resources and mother tongues.
