About Glory Life

Leaders Glory Life Network

Georg and Irina Karl have been married and serving God in full-time ministry for about 26 years.

Initially, they studied Theology at Tübingen University. After that they completed a practically-oriented bibleschool training. During this time God gave them a specific word whereupon they pioneered a new church in the area of Tübingen/Reutlingen in 1995. From the beginning, many people gave their life to Jesus there and supernatural healings and miracles occurred.

On the side Georg also obtained a doctorate degree at Professor Peter Wagner’s Leadership Institute (Colorado Springs) while Irina finished her Master of Ministry there.

Since around July 2010, the Glory Life Zentrum with Pastor Georg & Irina has been experiencing a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit that  manifests itself in an ever increasing revelation of God’s presence and glory and is accompanied by an enormous load of sometimes extremely spectacular signs, wonders and miracles.

These miraculous demonstrations of God also occur now in their national and international ministry in many different places.

Their passion is that the body of Christ worldwide receives a fresh and more profound revelation of God that enables us to fulfil our supernatural calling as „sons of Glory“ in and for this world.

Pastor Georg & Irina are convinced: Wherever the glory of God manifests itself in purity and power, the harvest is reaped and millions of people get the chance to receive the new life in Jesus Christ and to discover the deep satisfaction, fulfillment and calling God has prepared for a son or daughter in Christ!

This is why not religious severity or boredom but powerful, heavenly joy, love and freedom accompany their ministry. Through them many many people encounter the real touch and work of God for the first time and learn to reach their full potential in Christ.

As Pastor Georg and Irina have had the privilege throughout the last 26 years to get to know many different movements of God and be a part of some of them through their ups and downs God has allowed them to mature in the wisdom to discern and avoid spiritual pitfalls while on the other hand making room and enabling the Body of Christ to experience God’s full work in power and glory in our midst.

Pastor Georg also is the author of “Journey into Glory”, published in 2015 (English 2017) and „Sons of Glory“, published in English in 2019.
