This year's Bible expositions will be led by Peter J. Williams, Principal of Tyndale House (Cambridge, UK) and the four evening plenaries speakers will be Pablo Martínez (Psychiatrist, former President of the Spanish Evangelical Alliance), Amy Orr-Wing (Director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apolotetics), Peter Saunders (CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship) and Michael Reeves (President of Union School of Theology).



More than 100 elective workshops will be offered throughout the conference, with specialised topics such as: “Hospitality: The Lost Virtue of a 21st Century Church”, “Christianity and the New Biotechnologies”, “Understanding and Evaluating Claims Made About Islam’s History in Europe”, “De-Conversion: Why People Leave the Christian Faith – and (Re)Turn to It” or “How to Navigate a Fake News World”, among many others.



 



WORKING TOGETHER WITH A VISION FOR EUROPE



The annual gathering in Poland is a perfect platform for personal networking, at the ELF conference several mission movements meet to share a vision to re-evangelise Europe. “National nights” and year-round mentoring groups connect people in small groups and learning communities.

In addition, the conference’s Expo introduces the work of more than 20 Christian mission organisations working in Europe, from Bible Seminaries to youth evangelism projects, political platforms and media intiatives.



A group of more than 90 volunteers coming from four countries will serve the Forum participants throughout the five days of conference.
