Pastor Simon Röck has been co-pastor of the International Jesus Church in Erlangen since 2015. Born and raised in Villingen-Schwenningen on the edge of the Black Forest, God surprised him with his Holy Spirit at the age of 20 and called him into a new life.
After stays in New Zealand and Kenya, he accepted God’s challenge to go to full-time service and began studying theology at Lee University, TN, graduating with an MA in Biblical Studies.
It is Simon’s passion to introduce people to the deeper dimensions of the faith and to present them with a God whom one simply needs to be amazed of.
Simon is married to Mutave and they have two daughters. In his free time, he enjoys climbing in the Franconian Switzerland region (Fränkische Schweiz).
In addition, Simon has been Dean of Studies at the THS Academy of Pastoral Leadership since 2019, where he helps build the Kingdom of God by investing in the leaders of tomorrow.
