Kontaktmission is a networked mission movement empowering Christians worldwide to carry out their God-given callings, and sending them out for the building up of His church.



The beginning of Kontaktmission dates back to 1979. At that time the Siegenthaler couple began the work that God had shown them in the Waldviertel in Austria. More employees soon followed. Her vision extended to other countries in Europe and continued to develop.


Today Kontaktmission is active with 430 team members from 43 nations in 62 countries. These are lands that urgently need the Gospel and new churches. In some of these countries, the percentage of Bible-believing Christians makes up less than 1% of the population.

Our History.

About us.

Our core values.

Everything for the King!

Jesus must be evident in everything we do – in attitude, thoughts, words, deeds. 

The whole world should hear the good news that Jesus is King. 

That’s the big WHY! That’s why we do all this. 

Are you called? What is He calling you to do?

We work with you to discover what it is, and how you can live it out. 

Jesus is our reason to exist on this planet. We are not here for ourselves. 

There is a perfect reason to do what we do. Because we follow Jesus. 

What inspires you?

God is creative. He created all things. God created us in his image. 

My creativity is definitely not mine. God’s creative nature should show itself in my creativity. It connects me with Jesus when it is used for Him. God’s creativity is experienced most perfectly when we are serving Him with it.

The Holy Spirit is our inspiration. He gives us freedom to do things differently.  

What moves you?

We react, and we act, as the situation requires. We are adaptable and do different things in different places. We don’t work the same way in every country. 

We are intentionally flexible and work hard to think creatively. We make the most of what we have and what we expect with God’s help. 

We make plans. And then reality comes. So we lead out in a purposeful and well-considered manner, and then we react with fresh responses to challenges and opportunities that arise. 

Who is standing with you?

We work with the Body of Christ, not just one denomination. 

We are not alone. We know we are part of a bigger picture. We need others! We continually learn from others.

God’s kingdom is not built through competition, but with cooperation, communication and perseverance.
