'Salt and Light', an active European ministry is preparing its first European Leaders Conference which will be held on 11th until 13th June. The event is entitled with faith and vision - 'Raising apostolic churches across Europe'.
For the convenience of European ministers, the location of the conference is to be in Central Europe, near Nurnburg, Germany. It is expected to gather together more than 100 leaders from various churches across Europe.
Looking upon the decline of Christianity in the Western World, Salt and Light ministry believes that raising apostolic churches across Europe is the urgent heart of God for Europe nowadays. In order to fulfill the great commission, raising church leaders as frontier ancestors to develop a strong family of churches is of paramount importance.
As the prophet Ezekiel said, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! I will make breath enter you and you will come to life...so I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet- a vast army."
And this is the heart of the leaders' conference. It encourages churches to come to be envisioned together for what sort of 'apostolic families' God wants to raise in Europe. To fill them with the Holy Spirit, so that they can preach the good news of Jesus fearlessly and bring new life into the dying bones of Christianity in Europe, raising a mighty army for this generation. Leaders can also strengthen and encourage one another to be the sort of people God is looking for to fulfill his purposes in Europe.
Michael Winkler, an outstanding apostolic leader and pastor to pastors within Germany, is invited as the main speaker. Other members of the Salt and Light family, including Barney Coombs (Vancouver, Canada) and Jean Pillonel (Marseilles, France), will be ministering.
