Pre-Forum Conference: Spiritual Warfare

Five hundred years before Christ, the great Chinese General Sun-Tzu wrote these words in his book The Art of War: "One who knows the enemy and knows himself will not be endangered in a hundred engagements. One who does not know the enemy but knows himself will sometimes be victorious, sometimes meet with defeat. One who knows neither the enemy nor himself will invariably be defeated in every engagement." Unfortunately, there is much confusion today in the area of spiritual warfare. Are Satan and his demons behind everything, or so irrelevant they should be ignored? Is the battle in me, or around me? Should I respond to every attack in the same way? In this conference, Dave will give you a broad Biblical map for understanding spiritual warfare, showing the nature of our three main enemies, how to effectively fight each one of them, and the three levels of warfare with the forces of Satan. This Biblical foundation will help keep you oriented as you experience attacks and proactively engage the enemy.

This Pre-Forum Conference will take place preceding the European Leadership Forum on Friday, 22 May from 15:00-18:00 CEST.
