Christian Today is reporting:
“Called to Grow, Lead and Nurture” is the theme of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) European Church Leadership Consultation taking place in mid-September in Greifswald, Germany.
At the invitation of the Evangelical Church of Pomerania
(Pommersche Evangelische Kirche – PEK) and the LWF German National Committee (GNC), around 90 church leaders from Europe will discuss the common challenges and difficulties in church life for the region’s LWF member churches, reports Lutheran World Information.
The 11-16 September meeting is being organised by the Europe desk of the LWF Department for Mission and Development (DMD) and the host church.
While in Greifswald, the European church leaders hope also to share experiences on successful models used in response to the emerging social and religious demands as a result of Europe’s transformation. While globalisation and secularisation have an impact on both church life and society, there is also a growing interest in spirituality. Against this backdrop, participants will focus primarily on diverse church leadership models and different forms of mission.
