C3 CHURCH ZURICH
When Simon and Sara came back from C3 College in 2009 with a dream in their hearts to build a church in Zürich they had no idea how to start. But just a couple weeks later, through a divine appointment, they met Emanuel and Hannah, who had also just moved from the States with the same dream in their hearts. In that moment C3 Church Zurich was born. What followed was a lot of prayer, team building and many trips to C3 Lausanne until finally on January 29th 2012 our first Sunday service launched.
SIMON & SARA SPALINGER
Both were born in 1981. One of them is a few days older and hence one would expect a tiny bit wiser. Simon grew up as a missionary kid in Peru, while Sara grew up in a small village outside of Zürich. Both are teachers by profession and, how could it be different, met on the job, and still work as teachers. Since they got married their heart beats for one another and God.
In 2008, shortly after they got married, they left for Sydney, where they attended the C3 Church Bible College. In their time there the dream to have a church like this in Zürich grew and since January of 2012 they now founded and lead C3 Church Zürich. B
