Dave and Cathrin Osterhus – EFCA ReachGlobal

Since he was a young child, Dave wanted to be a missionary. In 1988, on a short-term trip to Austria, he was convinced that God wanted him to serve there long-term. After graduating Northwestern College and serving as a youth pastor in Brooklyn Park, Dave headed to Innsbruck with the EFCA in 1997. Cathrin, an Austrian girl on a teaching mission in Africa that year, became convinced that God wanted her to return to Innsbruck to help reach her fellow Austrians. Dave and Cathrin became close & got married while working together with the youth group in Innsbruck. Since then, the Osterhuses have served, leading the ReachGlobal Innsbruck team on its mission of “Mobilizing Austrian Youth for Jesus”
