Salvation Army Today – Church on Wheels

A church that goes to the people is the concept behind The Salvation Army in Germany’s KAR project. KAR, the German abbreviation for “Kirche auf Rädern (Church on Wheels) began in 2013. Gerald and Blanca Dueck run the project and have served with The Salvation Army in Germany for over 20 years. Volunteers assist with preparing meals, setting up for picnics and more. Each week, the KAR travels to various locations in Germany to share meals, conversation, friendship, and Jesus, with local residents.
