Calvary Chapel Salzburg: Ivan & Michelle Ibbotson
We are the Ibbotsons and we have been missionaries here in Salzburg for almost 8 years now. In 2007, we felt the Lord calling us to Salzburg to start a verse-by-verse Bible teaching church. Throughout the next year, we continually felt the Lord urging us; confirming that we were to pack up our family and move to Austria. With many obstacles to overcome, prayer, and answered prayers were confirming touches that God was leading and guiding and that He had wanted to do something great in the city of Salzburg.
In September of 2008, "The Chapel" in Salzburg began its journey with a handful of people meeting for a midweek Bible study. Within months, God opened the doors for us to have our first Sunday morning service.
We have been moving forward steadily ever since and have seen the mighty hand of God move greatly. It's been amazing to witness God use the most unlikely people in the most unconventional ways for the purpose of furthering His kingdom for His name's sake.
Your prayers and support are GREATLY appreciated as we continue the work of the ministry here in Salzburg. Our greatest desire is to abide in the Vine and allow Him to lead us by the Holy Spirit.
In His service,
Ivan and Michelle (Nollie, Ella, Emery, and Lucy) Ibbotson
