Pastor Winfried Bauer is the founder and leader in charge of OASIS Ministries International.
He and his wife, Lydia, have three children and six grandchildren.
For ten years, Winfried & Lydia led the Christus Centrum Oasis in Lilienthal near Bremen in northwest Germany.
During a visit to the Toronto Airport church (now TACF) in July 1994, their lives and ministry were fundamentally changed.
Since 2004 they have been traveling internationally as conference speakers and consultant for churches and ministries.
Consequently, the restoration of the five-fold ministry has become a topic of central importance for OASIS Ministries.
Alongside church-planting, they work with churches who are likewise seeking change and yearn for nothing more fervently than the Lordship of Jesus Christ in their midst. For this purpose, OASIS Ministries was set up as a non-denominational body and functions in various countries of the world.
