This year, for the first time in 18 years, the European Leadership Forum’s annual conference took place online due to the COVID-19 pandemic in late May. In the face of a closed door, God led the European Leadership Forum to adapt its training to a virtual format. At ELF Online this year, we were able to equip over 5,400 leaders from 123 countries with the tools they need to renew the Biblical church and spread the Gospel.

We are excited to now bring the European Leadership Forum to Christian leaders and their churches throughout the entire year – for FREE.

Master Classes

One of the lessons we learned from the Online ELF is that Christian leaders all over the world are hungry for quality teaching from world-class teachers. For this reason, we have created ELF Master Classes, which provide an opportunity to spend three hours learning from Forum speakers in a webinar format -- all from the comfort of your own home or church.

Currently there are three FREE Master Classes scheduled for this autumn.

The first Master Class, with Peter J. Williams, will take place on Saturday, 26 September from 15.00 – 18.00 London time:

Can We Trust the Gospels? Evidence for the Gospels' Historical Reliability

The Gospels―Matthew, Mark, Luke, John―are four accounts of Jesus’s life and teachings while on earth. But should we accept them as historically accurate? What evidence is there that the recorded events actually happened? This Master Class will cover the nature and content of the Gospels and discuss how to respond to critics who doubt the historical reliability of the Gospels.

Peter (P.J.) Williams is the Principal (CEO) of Tyndale House, one of the leading centers in the world for the academic study of the Bible. He is the author of Can We Trust the Gospels? (Crossway).

There are two additional Master Classes scheduled for later this autumn:

· Bobb Biehl (Executive Mentor) on Growing as a Servant Leader: Personal Development (24 October from 15.00-18.00 London Time)

· Dave Patty (Founder and President, Josiah Venture) on Spiritual Warfare (14 November from 15.00-18.00 London Time)

In addition to these Master Classes, two free 90-minute webinars are happening in September: 

Sarah Breuel (Evangelism Training Coordinator, IFES Europe) on Leading in the Spirit (15 September from 16.00-17.30 London Time)

Luke Greenwood (Director, Steiger Europe) on Confused, Alone, and Without Purpose: Can This Global Youth Culture Find Truth? (23 September from 18.00 – 19.30 London Time)

Sarah Breuel, Director of Revive Europe, Evangelism Training Coordinator for IFES Europe, and a 2020 ELF plenary speaker, writes about the Forum’s online strategy:

“ELF provides leadership training of the highest caliber. It is a gift for the church in Europe to learn from and journey with leaders of such gravitas. These online trainings and webinars will truly enrich the life of churches and their leaders in Europe.”

Nana Yaw Offei Awuku, Lausanne’s Global International Associate Director, had this to say:

“In Mark 1, we hear that Jesus couldn’t publicly enter a town anywhere...but people from everywhere kept coming to Him. JESUS gave us such a similar experience to this story in Mark during ELF Online, totally breaking through the barriers of COVID-19! My greatest joy was seeing how so many key leaders and friends from around the world who weren’t able to join the in-person conference in Wisla could enjoy fruitful connections and the significant community at ELF Online! I am thrilled they can have the same experience during the year with ELF’s Master Classes and webinars.”

Kathy Noland, Student Recruitment Leader, from the Bible Institute of South Africa said:

“It was a stimulating experience for this first-timer to ELF to be a part of the 2020 conference. The choice was agonizing: which course to attend?  Would it be super-academic? Would we be given constructive application?  My expectations were high. The quality of the material and the way it was presented more than met the challenge and I won't hesitate to urge you to log on for the Master Classes later this year. Not only is the delivery first-class, but thanks to the technology, no one is left out of the experience. It's a community of international believers, on one platform, sharing their gifts for the building up of the Body of Christ." 

You are Invited!

If you are a committed evangelical, we invite you, your small group, or your church to join us for these Master Classes and webinars for teaching and fellowship – at no cost to you!  Come interact with brothers and sisters from across the globe.  We believe you will be challenged and encouraged as a result.
