About us

Hi, my name is Theodore Goutzios. I’m the project director of the Kingfisherproject and skipper of the S/Y Encounter. I’m married with Sandra since 1980, and we have for most of these years been working together in full time Christian service.

Our mission has been to spread abroad the good news of Jesus Christ. That, He gives life to those who would trust in Him.

Since 1997 we’ve been working with Torchbearers - Austria, running discipleship training courses and Christian Retreats. Equipping and encouraging Christians to embrace the Life of Christ, and share it far and wide. So that many may come to have faith and 
life in Him.
