Serving the City

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you … and pray to the Lord on its behalf…

jeremiah 29:7

It is a privilege to be a part of the city of Oberursel!

As partners in this city we are constantly seeking opportunities to serve and build up our community. This is done in various ways such as the annual Champions in Life youth summer soccer program or the Land Hessen sponsored German language program “MitSprache-Deutsch4U”. If you have a heart for the people of the city where you work and live, then please contact Laura Meller to find out how your skills and talents can be used to benefit your neighbour.

Champions in Life

Champions in Life is a free 5-day summer soccer program for youth planned, organised and executed by the body of International Christian Fellowship. With strong support from the City of Oberursel and SC Eintracht Oberursel we are able to provide a week of communal learning and improving soccer skills all while building friendships and having fun. The development of our children is important so we teach values that challenge the mind, work ethic and the heart attitudes that influence behaviour.

In addition, we hold a free coaches training to mentor young people and coaches on how to model the Champions Way to the next generation using soccer. Over the past  years we have seen young people across the greater Frankfurt area benefit from Champions in Life and we hope to see positive change in the community for years to come!

Become part of the Champions in Life family by contacting Laura Meller for more information.

Training up Champions. For life.


It is often said that language is the key to any culture. International Christian Fellowship is now offering the Land Hessen sponsored program “MitSprache-Deutsch4U” to help those not native to Germany learn language and culture. This introductory class is held on the ICF campus and includes periodic excursions to important places within the city (i.e. city library, city hall, etc).

If you are interested in volunteering for a MitSprache-Deutsch4U class or in joining as a participant please contact Laura Meller for more details. Enrolment is limited to twenty participants per class.
