Every month CTC sends you news, videos, blogs, photos, and tweets about new churches. In response, you gave over $80,000 to help 14 new churches get started in global cities. Thank you!
When I tell people from other countries that I am Swiss and planting a church in Basel, the conversation often changes to at least one of these topics: mountains, banks, watches, chocolate, or cheese. We all know these Swiss stereotypes. I have to admit that they apply to Basel, but not exactly in the way you might think.
Until I met Judith and Leo Dietschy at the 2013 City to City International Intensive in New York City, the city of Basel registered solely as Roger Federer’s hometown. Judith’s smile and Leo’s intensity and enthusiasm brightened many a crazy workday. It also helped that they were planting a church in Roger’s city!
