I would like to introduce myself: Stefan Schödel, 35 years old. Engineer and living Christian. For over five years I have been part of the leadership team at one of my local church's locations (the Ecclesia Church Nuremberg, Pastor Konstantin Kruse). I have also been in charge of baptisms and/or baptism teams at various locations for many yearsand has been able to accompany well over 100 people on the fantastic step of baptism of faith.
Baptizo exists to support churches in fulfilling their missionary mandate powerfully and effectively.
For us, as a growing congregation in permanently rented or even frequently changing premises, there was no easy and safe way in the past to integrate baptism into the service. Outside, only parts of the community and guests often celebrated and marveled at this powerful sign.
It's good that I'm not only a Christian, but also a passionate engineer. With my technical expertise from work and church, it was actually only a matter of time before a vision finally became reality:
A portable baptismal font. Light, but sturdy. Compact, practical and beautiful. Just right for today's community life!
We believe that every church with New Testament DNA could use a flexible approach to water baptism today.
That's whyn there is Baptizo! For more information, please readour Visions blog post
In the meantime, countless hands have supported our work and vision or carried it further. In particular, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wife Jessica, without whose patience and practical help this heart project would not have been possible.
