The European Leadership Forum is a movement
where no leader stands alone.
We believe relationships play a critical role in the Christian life. Jesus taught that loving God and loving people is at the heart of life. Because of this, the Forum is built on sacrificial relationships of love, encouragement, and service between evangelical leaders from different organizations, denominations, and nations.
The European Leadership Forum provides opportunities at our annual meeting and throughout the year for leaders to build relationships and receive the training and encouragement they need. Find out more about Forum Personal Mentoring, One-on-one Mentoring, and Year-Round Mentoring below.
Forum Personal Mentoring
Forum Personal Mentoring seeks to unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders personally, professionally, and spiritually by connecting them with experienced leaders who can speak into their lives and ministries. Mentoring meetings take place at the Forum Annual Meeting and last about an hour. Participants may pose difficult questions, seek advice on a specific situation, learn more about a particular topic of interest, or receive prayer and encouragement from mature Gospel leaders in these mentoring meetings.
All Forum participants are invited to sign up for up to two Forum Personal Mentoring meetings. After choosing a type of mentoring, participants select a mentor and a time slot through our scheduling system. The types of mentoring we offer change every year. See a list of last year’s mentoring types HERE.
Forum One-on-one Mentoring
Forum One-on-one Mentoring seeks to unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders personally, professionally, and spiritually throughout the year by connecting them with experienced mentors and leaders who can mentor them and speak into their lives and ministries.
