Change in the management of the Fortified Churches Foundation

Philipp Harfmann – Managing Director of the Fortified Churches Foundation for many years – has given up his position and will hand over his duties to a successor in order to take on new tasks in the future.

He took over the management of the foundation when it was established in January 2016 and had been working for its predecessor, the Coordination Office for Fortified Churches, since 2008. According to Philipp Harfmann, now that a multi-year, intensive funding programme financed by the German federal budget has come to an end, “it is a good time to place the management of the Fortified Churches Foundation in new hands and ensure an orderly and smooth transition.” He will continue to be available as an advisor to the new board and support the team at the foundation’s offices.

The Evangelical Church A.B. in Romania and the Fortified Churches Foundation would like to thank Mr Harfmann for his tireless commitment and the extremely successful and pleasant cooperation over the past 16 years.
