European Leadership Forum – May 2013

Yvonne and I are right now attending the ELF (European Leadership Forum) in Wisla, Poland. Over 750 ministry leaders have gathered, representing 43 nations. Our common bond is Jesus, and our desire to see spiritual renewal and church growth in Europe. We are here to (1)  gain some new inspiration and insight into how to serve our home church of St. Andrew’s in Kimberley, BC, Canada  (2) to network with European ministry leaders (3) identify individuals who may be able to assist us in future Barnabas Seminars  (4) identify local Romanian churches where our BB ministry may be of some help’

The purpose of ELF is to be “a bridge between local leaders’ needs and God’s global resources …..  so BB fits right into this so well!  It is a forum to unite, equip and resource Evangelical leaders in Europe.  But so much of what is being taught here will be helpful to our church back home. What a joy to be here. What a great way to spend ‘Study Leave’. I am thankful to St. Andrew’s and our Presbytery for releasing funds and time to take all of this blessing, and to share with Yvonne in this great adventure. – Blessings to you all – DJ
