Esther Baumann


is co-leader of Kingdom Impact and has been part of the team since the ministry was founded in 2002.

Together with her three younger siblings, Esther was born and raised in Bielefeld, a beautiful city near the Teutoburg Forest.

When Esther was a teenager, she attended many youth meetings and events at the YMCA. Her time at the YMCA left an impact on her and it was also during this season that she received a deep love for missions and the nations while reading Gladys Aylword’s biography. In response to this passion that had awakened in her, Esther went on to spend her summer holidays serving on outreaches with King’s Kids (YWAM).

After matriculating, Esther joined a 5 month discipleship training school aboard the Anastasis (Mercy Ships) after which she remained as a staff member for a further year.

Esther went on to study language and ethnology and trained as a foreign language correspondent while also joining numerous outreaches in parallel to her studies.

With the founding of Kingdom Impact, Esther joined the team as Monika Flach’s assistant. Since this time, Esther is involved in all fields of work within the ministry.

While serving with Kingdom Impact, Esther soon began to develop key strengths in the areas of personality training, staff/team training, guiding and counseling individuals and teams, discipleship, unmasking strongholds of the mind as well as team building.

In 2006, Esther moved to Zurich, along  with the core team of Kingdom Impact, in order to specifically invest into the training of young church planters.

From 2009 onwards, Kingdom Impact focused back onto the training ministry for teams and churches.

In 2010, the growing Kingdom Impact team moved to Konstanz and in 2016, the team relocated to Denkingen – having been blessed with an appropriate house for ministry. This move has enabled ample space for our team life, training ministry, for the publishing of materials, for office and work space and for the prayer house.
