Our Vision:  making the Gospel visible!

"We loved you so much, that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us."   1 Thessalonians 2:8

We are people who come from different countries like Canada, the United States, South Korea and others.

We are people who work with different sending orgs, like Teach Beyond, GEM, SIL, Avant, Cadence, Young Life, IMB, Cru and others.

We are people who are from different generations; more than 50% of the 400 people are students.

We are people from different church traditions; Anglican, Baptist, Presbyterian, Assemblies of God, and others.

But by God's grace we are one family in Christ!


Black Forest Christian Fellowship has been part of the English-language community of Kandern, Germany, for over 25 years.  We began as a way for Black Forest Academy to provide Sunday morning fellowship and worship for the staff and students of this school.  


As time went on other English-speaking families living in the Kandern area began to take part in the services as well. In recent years a number of other English-speaking internationals from the surrounding areas of the Black Forest; Basel, Switzerland; and the French Alsace have made BFCF their church home.
