As a member of the umbrella organisation of the Diakonie, we identify with the common diaconal mission: “service to those in need of help” and the “active neighbourly love” that goes with it.
Evangelical Alliance Erfurt
We belong to the Evangelical Alliance and see ourselves as part of the local church of Jesus Christ.
Netzwerk Gemeinde Erfurt e.V.
A key cooperation partner on site is Netzwerk Gemeinde Erfurt e.V., which in turn is part of the Bund Freikirchlicher Pfingstgemeinden.
City of Erfurt
bärenstark Erfurt is recognised as an independent provider of child and youth welfare services by the youth welfare committee of Erfurt city council. In addition, we attach particular importance to good relations with all social institutions and authorities in our city.
Together with 37 other organisations we are a member of the Stadtjugendring Erfurt and participate in the social and community life of the city.
Arbeitsgemeinschaft Christlicher Lebenshilfen
The membership in ACL-Germany enables us, among other things, to adequately place people seeking help in suitable therapy and aftercare centres.
Since 2017, we have been receiving institutional project support from Aktion Mensch Lottery in the area of child and youth welfare.
Protestant Church of Central Germany
As an exemplary fresh-X project for the Protestant Church of Central Germany, we are being institutionally supported over a project period of five years.
Since nine years the employees of the Jesus-Project Erfurt live and work in the social hotspot Roter Berg. They focus on socially weak and addicted people. Besides the socio-pedagogical work on individual people, it is important for the Jesus-Project to also participate in the cultural, political and social development of the Roter Berg. For this reason the association has been running the ANDERS meeting center in the residential area for six years. Here different offers are made.
There is a regular lunch for people in need. I myself have cooked here and found out that the ANDERS is really well accepted by the local people. In addition, various cultural events, seminars, lectures and training courses for all age and social groups take place in the ANDERS meeting centre.
I would be very happy if I have aroused your interest in the work of the association “Jesus-Project Erfurt e.V.” and if you would accompany it benevolently.
Jesus always took care of the people on the fringes of society and the staff of the Jesus Project follow this example. I would like to support their commitment.
In particular, the fact that local residents who are struggling with alcohol problems, among other things, receive your joint support and meaningful employment through your project is a great help in social work in the district. Presentations such as the recently carried out photo project “The Beautiful on the Roter Berg” show all interested citizens beautiful pictures of their residential quarter, but at the same time also your work with the young people of the residential area, who have helped to realise this project.
The charity run initiated by your project a few years ago before the annual summer party has become an integral part of our district and is positively regarded by the residents.
I would like to thank Mr. Michael Flügge in particular for his voluntary work as spokesman for the culture working group of the Roter Berg district, which he does in addition to his normal work. Culture in the districts lives and dies with people who fill them with life or not. We are together proud of what we have created together when we look back on the last 5 years. Mr Flügge and the Jesus Project have a share in this.
