As long as Thorsten can remember, Jesus played a part in his life. From his early childhood his mother used to pray with him and he enjoyed the biblical stories being told at Sunday School. However, it was as a teenager that he met Jesus on a more personal level. He understood what it meant that Jesus had died on the cross for him and that he was saved by God’s grace alone.
Thorsten and his wife Kerstin are Crosslinks mission partners. From 2008 – 2017 Thorsten served as senior lecturer at Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary and associate pastor of two churches in Windhoek. Before going to Namibia he was pastor of two ethnic-minority churches in the U.K. and International Chaplain at the University of Nottingham. Thorsten is an ordained minister of the Rhenish Church in Namibia, a united Lutheran and Reformed denomination. He is the author/editor of ten theological books and has published articles in various journals and magazines. Together with his wife Kerstin he enjoys walking and playing board games.
