TOS is a protestant, charismatic free church and ministry. Their creed is, “We believe in the transforming power of the message of Jesus Christ!”
The initial association “Tübinger Offensive Stadtmission e.V.“ was founded in 1987 by Jobst and Charlotte Bittner as a result of praying together with three other couples. After holding non-denominational services for a few years, they founded an independent ministry in 1990, which is the “TOS Church Tübingen” today. Since 1997 international branches have been planted in nine different nations up to date through church plants and establishing children’s homes in Latin America and centers for drug rehabilitation in Eastern Europe. In Germany, they planted churches and social ministries in Leipzig, Ueckermünde, Albstadt-Tailfingen and Halle. Their extensive prayer ministry birthed centers for 24/7 prayer in various cities in Europe, as well as in North and South America.
