Break free.

Come home.

My name is Johannes and as a speaker and author I deal with the topics of meaning, connectedness and faith. After studying philosophy and German language and literature, I earned a doctorate in Catholic theology and founded the House of Prayer in Augsburg together with my wife in 2005. The House of Prayer is an innovative place of Christian spirituality, where people have been praying 24/7 for more than 10 years. I reach hundreds of thousands of people seeking meaning on international stages, social media and with my lectures on YouTube. In doing so, I try to break the boundaries of the usual in a deep and humerous way - to bring rationality and spirituality together, to reconcile head and heart.
