Jochen Geiselhart started his term as national leader in September 2015, after serving as vice-president for the last nine years. Jochen Geiselhart founded a foursquare church in the southwest of Germany in 1999 after working as a financial controller in different companies. He also was involved in several church plants and in training and coaching of young leaders.

He and his wife Brigitte are married for 27 years and have four children.
Strategy for the nation:
Foursquare Germany has now 35 churches. Within the Foursquare movement we have a special emphasis on strong and encouraging relationships. Therefore we established a structure of regional coordinators who have the responsibility to oversee, to take care and to encourage the local pastors as well as their church leadership.
We do have a threefold strategy for the next season of Foursquare Germany:
- A new emphasis on church planting through
- Young leaders who are empowered by their leaders to be open
- For new ways and models of what church can look like.
