This invitation-only congress is aimed at spiritually mature Evangelical leaders. The European Leadership Forum is designed for you if you are:
In a leadership role - ELF attendees should be in roles of leadership in either a church, a Christian organisation, or society. Such roles include, but are not limited to: pastors, church planters, university professors, journalists, scientists, artists, psychologists, and medical doctors.
Qualified for the Network to which you are applying - ELF is dedicated to training and relationship building. Our programme consists of multiple learning communities called Networks, which meet each morning and are designed for specific groups of Christian leaders with specific needs. When applying to attend ELF, you must also apply to one Network that fits your gifts, ministry focus, and background. Learn more.
Fluent in English - As ELF’s annual meeting is conducted entirely in English, an advanced level of English proficiency is required.
Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 - In order to comply with Polish regulations for large gatherings and to provide a safe, interactive environment, ELF participants are required to be fully vaccinated with one of the four vaccines recognized by the Polish government:
- Comirnaty (Pfizer)
- Spikevax (Moderna)
- Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca)
- COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)
We understand that vaccination is an issue for some. If this is the case for you, please know that we will miss seeing you in Wisla in May. We hope this requirement will be unnecessary in coming years and want to remain together in our shared mission of reaching Europe with the Gospel. We hope to see you at a future ELF.
Willing to comply with any other COVID-19 safety measures - In order to comply with the Polish government restriction for large gatherings, ELF may employ additional COVID-19 safety measures such as rapid testing, masking, or distancing.
