The Jesus Freaks International are a German evangelical Christian youth organization. The movement uses the Alpha and Omega symbol to represent Jesus Christ.

History

The Jesus Freaks movement was created in September 1991 in Hamburg, Germany by Martin Dreyer.[1] Dreyer, who would be ordained as a free church minister in 1993, based the organization on the Jesus People movement which began in the 1960s in the United States. In 1994 the organization established itself as the Jesus Freaks International, a non-profit group headquartered in Berlin. Over 100 groups or churches are established in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

They also organize the annual Freakstock Christian music festival, which claims to be the biggest alternative Christian Festival in Europe.

Dreyer has also authored the Volxbibel, a translation of the Bible in the language of the German youth.

Critics

Critics cite the movement as leaning towards conservative fundamentalism,[2] and having the appearance of a closed society with a high level of peer pressure internally.[3] However, they point out that they provide ministry to drug abusers, the homeless, and others often marginalized by the mainstream church.[3][4]

Duane Pederson, who became one of the primary voices in the US Jesus Movement of the 1970s, see parallels between that movement and the new German one.[4] Specifically, both movements were created from grass roots.[4]
