Before going into the healing ministry I had a professional career working as an executive in the management department for the space program. Earlier, I had earned a Diploma in Business Management. I also taught Project Management at various business colleges, including the European Business School in Munich, and at the "Fachhochschule" (Business College) in Rosenheim.
At the height of my career in the space industry, when finally I was able to do the work I had always wanted to do, one day there came a command or direction - which appeared to me to be coming from God - that I must go into the full-time practice of Christian Science.
The public practice of Christian Science is one of the most multifunctional missions or professions in the world. My unconditional love for Christian Science makes me want to share my wide spiritual experience with all mankind. I started this spiritual journey in 2000 and it led me to become a Christian Science teacher. My motivation to become a teacher may be summarized by the following quotation from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 454): "Love for God and man is the true incentive in both healing and teaching. Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way." I became a Christian Science teacher in December 2006 after taking Normal class instruction.
