Joining Hands for Mission in Europe 2015
JUNE 15-18 2015 IN KRISTIANDSAND, NORWAY
Dear Federation leader!
Welcome to the third Joining Hands for Mission in Europe conference. This IFFEC
conference, initiated by the Mission Committee, will be unique in several ways. We
are not only asking denominational leaders to attend, we are also inviting gifted
church planters to join them.
It is essential that denominational leaders (decision makers) and church planters or
potential church planters will join from as many federations as possible. We hope that
this mix of leaders and practitioners will give us an environment of great spiritual
energy and practical synergy. Our prayer is to prepare practitioners and gifted youth
workers, entrepreneurs and lay leaders for a fresh growth in Gods Kingdom in
We believe that church planting is a fresh expression of God’s movement. For this
purpose, we have put together an extensive program with great speakers and good
moderators. Our vision for the conference is to empower national Free Church
federations and move towards greater effectiveness in planting churches. The
conference will be a working conference with focus on action steps (each country will
work together on their plan), getting to know one another and prayer.
We are asking you as a leader of your federation to invite the people you know will
be right for this conference. This is an opportunity to continue to form the Lords work
for your nation. Welcome to this great working conference and we hope you will enjoy
a beautiful part of Norway.
Blessings in Christ,
Churches and Federations of IFFEC of Europe
Norwegian Executive Secretary of World Mission
Torben Martin Joswig
Norwegian Executive Director of Church Growth and Planting
