Like Jesus and his first 12?
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13,35
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Mt 5:11
… whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12
Or like Acts?
… and having favor with all the people. Acts 2,47
… …when they heard that, it went through their heart and they wanted to kill her. Acts 5,33
… And though they said so, they could hardly keep the people from sacrificing to them. Acts 14,18
Or like …

Let’s fast forward 20 years: What will be said and written about them?
What about you and your team?
And by whom?
We want to make waves.
Hopefully big. Definitely divine. Always together.
At the Leadership Conference you can …
Are you praying for your colleagues early in the morning before work? Or do you prefer to walk around the train station area at 2am in the night to introduce Jesus to really tired people?
“All nations…” To reach all it needs everyone. Any age, any subculture, any background. We’re not yet there. Definitely you’re still missing, together with your experience, your prayers, your dreams, your friends, your life style.
Come and inspire others with your passion and gifts. Probably you find someone who has been waiting for you for a long while. Join us in celebrating Jesus and the crazy stories He’s writing among us. We’re looking forward to your share.
Hold on, hold onto, be faithful… No matter in what special ways God speaks to you. No matter how little you understand the other person from time to time. God has put you together, over and out.
You know how hard that is? We too! “Teach them to obey” takes time… but there is no other way: You can only experience the whole beauty of God being at work in your neighbor by again and again watching, encouraging, exhorting, carrying. No conference could ever replace that.
But a conference can show you people who are on the way together for 20, 7, 2… years. You get the chance to learn from their mistakes and to see the unity that is possible despite all difference. Maybe afterwards you know who you want to be on the way with the next years.
You know that there is nobody who would prepare your spiritual sandwich every day or tell you when it’s time to pray? Maybe you care about 1-2 people, groups, networks who expect exactly that from you?
Congratulations! You’re grown up. You could also say you’re a leader. You know that it’s your responsibility to look for the next step. Too challenging? Oh yes. A conference won’t get you out of that. But it can help you to not stay alone with it.
Go together with us looking for next steps and for allies. Meet people who have faced or are facing similar challenges. They’re ready to give advice, to train you and to prepare the spiritual sandwiches for your disciples.
