The Orientierungsjahr is aimed at young adults and stands for career guidance, spiritual growth, personal development, and social engagement. This is accomplished through living in an intercultural environment, individual guidance, Bible lessons, internships, and missionary outreach.
The association is a non-denominational institution that seeks to offer youth and young adults a holistic and Christ-centered orientation.
The Orientierungsjahr is a ministry branch of the evangelical “Brüdergemeinde” (Brethren Church) in Korntal, which was established in 1819. Since its founding, the church has pursued one goal: to live out their faith in Jesus Christ in everyday life.
