After the plenary sessions on Monday and Tuesday, May 9 & 10, there will be two days of special consultations for church leaders, hosted by Rev Markku Harpponen, a Lutheran priest, the  former Campus Crusade director for Western Europe and present ambassador for church relations.
Location: Hotel Walzer, Németvölgyi út 110, 1124 Budapest.

(See list of hotels and map for photos, location and address).

The Church Leaders Consultation will give pastors, ministers, priests, elders and deacons the opportunity to interact with experienced and world-renowned speakers and resource people on issues facing church leaders in Europe today.
This will be an opportunity for local church leaders to to gain a 'glocal' perspective - seeing globally, acting locally. The plenaries will offer a broad look at Europe - yesterday, today and tomorrow - while the consultations will offer more in depth understanding for your local situation.
