Stan and Grace Shelton arrived in Vienna, Austria on February 13, 2001. It had long been their desire to serve God in Austria. Their first term was spent assisting in the ministry of Todd and Sarah Hudson at Immanuel Bibelgemeinde in Vienna.
In January of 2006, the Shelton family transitioned into the next phase of their ministry. After moving to the 22nd district of Vienna, Stan established an organization called Projekt.B - Bible Knowledge for Life, with the purpose of teaching the Word of God about Jesus Christ in a practical, life-changing way. Through Projekt.B, the Sheltons established a Sunday worship service in May 2006, with the future goal of developing a fully functioning indigenous church. Sunday,
October 4, 2009, was a milestone for the Sheltons when the group of believers with whom they have been working in Vienna held their charter membership service.
The church constitution they adopted states that, "the goal of our church is to give God the glory by being true to His Word. Success is measured by the Christlikeness of each member."
The Tony Shelton family arrived in Vienna in January 2007 to join the ministry team. The Lord has also led several Austrian believers to partner in this endeavor for the Lord. The team's desire is that many people will come to the personal knowledge of the loving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Stan and Grace have five children, Kaleb, Lukas, Micah, James, and Kirsten Jane.
