This year in May, 800 handpicked leaders from 59 countries were registered to attend the European Leadership Forum (ELF) annual in-person conference in Wisla, Poland.  For the first time the Forum has been forced to cancel this gathering due to COVID-19 during the past 18 years. 

In the face of this closed door, God has led the European Leadership Forum to adapt it’s training to a virtual format. As a result, the 2020 European Leadership Forum is being offered as an online conference -- with registration now open for free.

During 22-28 May, evangelical leaders from around the world will be inspired and equipped for their life, leadership, and ministry through 114 Workshops, Seminars, Pre-Forum Conferences, Network and Plenary sessions taught by over 100 world-class speakers including:

●      John Lennox, Professor Emeritus at Oxford University

●      JP Moreland, Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

●      Os Guinness, Apologist, author and social critic

●      Peter J. Williams, Principal of Tyndale House in Cambridge

●      Rico Tice, Senior Minister of Evangelism at All Souls Langham Place and creator of Evangelism Explored

These speakers join a host of other evangelical leaders whom God has led to be part of the Forum movement.  Wayne Grudem, Professor of Theology at Phoenix Seminary and author of the best-selling systematic theology book in the world, writes about the European Leadership Forum: 

“The European Leadership Forum is one of the most strategic ministries throughout the world.  My wife and I have given of our time and money to the Forum because this allows us to leverage our giving in a way that has a very significant impact for the kingdom.  Without ever getting paid, I and over 100 speakers have given our time and effort to this strategic work for the advancement of God’s kingdom.  I totally believe in the Forum.”

John Piper, author and founder of Desiring God Ministries, writes of the Forum:

“The European Leadership Forum is a catalyst for the advancement and deepening of Evangelical Gospel ministries throughout Europe.  My participation in one of their gatherings was an education and encouragement for me, as I interacted with pastors and educators and business people from countries I have never been to. This is a network-spawning ministry that creates lines of friendship and communication whose fruitfulness in strategic biblical initiatives is significant and growing. 

I thank God for ELF.”

"If you are a committed evangelical, we invite you to join us online for a time of teaching and fellowship – at no cost to you! interact with brothers and sisters from across the globe.  We believe you will be challenged and encouraged as a result," the organizers state.

Over 1,550 additional Evangelical leaders from around the world have already registered for ELF Online in the last 10 days since registration opened.  

Nana Yaw Offel Awuku, the Global Associate Director of Lausanne, has joined hundreds of registered ELF participants who have shared ELF Online with others. He writes:

“I have actually shared about ELF Online in many leadership circles as my personal best example in global leadership responses to our common surprising COVID-19 adjustments.”
