Origins and development
Nightfever was founded by Katharina Fassler-Maloney and Pastor Andreas Süß after the World Youth Day in Cologne in 2005. Originally planned as a one-off prayer evening on 29 October 2005 in the spirit of the World Youth Day, it soon developed into a regular Nightfever evening with students from various faculties and educational institutions. First in Bonn, then always in close contact and after prior training, in Freiburg, Erfurt, Mainz and Cologne. In this way, the initiative spread further and further. In the meantime, there are Nightfevers in more than 70 German cities, such as Munich, Berlin, Cologne, Erfurt and Dresden. But there are also Nightfevers in 26 other countries (Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Denmark, England, Scotland, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Canada, Croatia, Australia, Brazil, the USA, Belgium, Poland, Argentina, Thailand, Luxembourg, France, Slovakia, Mexico, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, India and Hungary). In total, more than 4,300 Nightfever evenings have taken place so far.
In order to keep Nightfever in unity worldwide and to maintain the vision and charisma, Nightfever starts are only possible after prior training by the international Nightfever team. Enquiries for interested parties via firstname.lastname@example.org.
