Lasst Christus den Mittelpunkt eures Lebens sein. Seid immer dazu bereit, denen Rede und
Antwort zu stehen, die euch nach der Begründung eures Glaubens fragen. Seid dabei freundlich,
aber vergesst nicht, welche Verantwortung ihr vor Gott habt ... (1. Petrus 3, 15-16)
Dient einander, ein jeder mit der Gabe,
die er von Gott empfangen hat ... 1. Petrus 4,10
Gehet hinaus in die ganze Welt und verkündigt
allen Menschen das Evangelium ... Markus 16,15
... und machet alle Nationen zu Jüngern.
Barbara Gloor was born in the south of Germany in 1960 and grew up in a large Catholic family. Upon finishing her apprenticeship as an industrial clerk, she worked as an HR clerk at a large company for several years.

His messages are very encouraging and touch the body of Christ in many aspects because he has tested and proven them to be true in his personal life over the course of many years. Max has also penned two books. To the Media …
