Education shaped in a Christian spirit

The educational, social and cultural tasks of the Francke Foundations were, from August Hermann Francke on, significantly shaped by the Christian spirit and have increased over the centuries. The Evangelical Church in Central Germany takes up the long tradition of pastoral and paedagogical work of the Foundations’ pastors. The Evangelical Church of Anhalt, the Evangelical Church District Halle-Saalkreis and the Francke Foundations are jointly responsible for the work of the current Foundations’ chaplain, Eckart Warner.
