Over 750 evangelical leaders from all countries of Europe will be gathering in the town of Wisla (south of Poland) for a week of the annual European Leadership Forum (ELF).
The invitation-only event is an effort to bring together workers of representative Christian ministries from all regions to encourage, train and support each other.
From 19-24 May, the gathering seeks to “unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders to renew the biblical church and evangelise Europe”.
The intense week will include morning Bible Expositions by Conrad Mbewe (Kabwata Baptist Church, Zambia) and evening talks addressing cultural trends in Europe, the church, and mission. Testimonies and interviews will introduce projects worth following.
The day-long programm includes thematic networks (apologetics, church planting, artists, media communicators, scientist, among several others) and a over 50 seminars in the afternoons.
Evangelical organisations of all kinds, including Evangelical Focus, are going to present in Wisla, sharing their work in the Forum Expo.
The ELF annual gathering seeks to be as representative as possible of the European reality, and therefore participants from Southern and Eastern European countries are offered scholarships to attend the conference.
A large bookstore with both reference works and new publications at a discounted price is also used by attendants to resource their ministries for nations in which Christian literature is not very accessible.
The organisation has announced that the main sessions of the morning and evening will be streamed online for free to anyone to access: on the Forum of Christian Leaders’ website and on its Youtube Channel.
