We hope you have had a great summer and feel excited and refreshed for what God is doing in Europe right now…..
You will hopefully know already that our (European) Field Leadership Conference is coming up soon from the 3-7th of Feb 2020.
This time we will be in the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic. We are really pleased to be able to convene in this amazing country as it will be the first time ever that we have done so. Always a good thing!
This will be a leadership conference (gathering) so it is open to all people involved in leadership in YWAM Europe. Even if you are really new or in a process of stepping into new responsibility, this conference is for you!! As YWAM is so decentralised, the things that keep us connected and united are shared vision, values and relational networks. Conferences and gatherings such as this one are so key in connecting with other countries, bases and regions even. We have been meeting in this way since 2001 and it has proved to be hugely significant in fostering deeper relationships, shared projects and starting up new things together…..including team plants! Its amazing what we can do together when we pray, meet and eat together as leaders in this tribe called YWAM!
Please make it a priority to join us for this time, we have worked hard to find the right venue and price so it is as accessible to as many people as possible. The whole cost of the conference is 155 Euro which is pretty good for the city centre ( a little more if you want your own room!). It is easy to get to on the cheap airline list and hopefully central enough to drive to as well…..
Our theme for this year is about embracing youth culture in the mission, making room for young voices and working together to see even more young people empowered and released to do new things in new ways throughout YWAM Europe and beyond. Accommodation will be in hostels and all of our meetings and food will be in a large church near the centre of the city. The exciting news this year is we have managed to find a CHEF who will be catering for all our meals!! I said it would be ok to have sandwiches only for lunch with some fruit, etc (How English of me!) To which he replied, ’No Way!’ I will do hot meals for lunch and dinner, different every time …. This always makes for a great conference which is awesome. Praise God!
There will be great worship, key speakers, short seminars and workshops. And lots of time and space for networking, dreaming and scheming together into the night. 🙂 Don’t miss it!
All the info you need to be able to register is below. And don’t miss the early bird price to save money!
If you would like to run a seminar or a workshop through your ministry network or focus area, we would love to make space for you, please email me. If you would like to have a stand with flyers, brochures and promotional material, please let us know and we can make it happen. We cannot promote easily from the front with so many people so there will be a good market space available for you……
Finally, if you know of other leaders, new and old that might want to come to this, please forward it (no matter what part of the world they live in). If you are a convener for an ACT or a ministry network, please send this to your networks right now while you think of it !!! :). Cheers
Much blessings and in a few cases, the occasional hug 😉
