The RELay (Reconciliation, Evangelisation, Leadership, and Youth) Conference on Courageous Leadership began this evening at 8pm. Registration opened at 4pm, so we were able to get there at 4:30 to set up our information table.
We don’t have counts yet, but we heard they have about 250 registered, so there should be many opportunities to meet new people from across Europe. The largest contingency seems to be from Croatia.
We met several people this evening and had some very encouraging conversations. We are being led in worship this week by a group primarily from Slovakia (I say ‘primarily’ because there is a guy attending one of our studies here who is playing guitar with them).
We had a very challenging message this evening by Lynn Green on Preparing for Courageous Leadership using the example of Daniel. Lynn has served for many years with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and now focuses much of his energy on international leadership development.
We’re looking to learn a lot, be challenged a lot, and draw closer to the Lord as we also seek to introduce these Christian leaders from around Europe to some effective Bible study tools. Thanks for praying with us. The days are long, but I will try to post updates each day.
