Advance Conference


Do you dream of more people encountering Jesus? Would you like to see others who don’t know Christ becoming wholehearted disciples of him? Are you ready to invest in the cause for which Jesus laid down his life?

We strongly believe that making disciples can be done best in the context of planting new colourful churches that reflect the ethnic diversity of our cities. And no, that is not as complicated as you might think! Starting small, with a bottom-up approach and an entrepreneurial mindset you can be really surprised about what the Lord can do. We invite you to investigate whether you are that person who is ready to plant a new in- tercultural church through building missional communities. Would you be ready to invest at least one day a week?

The program
  • Inspirational talks about European church planting by European leaders like Øivind Augland (M4), Theo Visser, Philip Kirkland, Sara Mohi and others
  • Workshops about starting a community in your neighbourhood and how the training program will help you
  • Time to process, to worship, to pray, to eat, to connect and to have fun
