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.
