2023 Forum Volunteer Information

Trip Overview


Experience a new culture, form lifelong connections, and meet and serve passionate Christian leaders from around the world!


The Forum Volunteer Team is open to committed evangelical believers from across the United States and Europe who have a desire to serve. We welcome volunteers of all ages, as long as they are in good health and able to keep up with the busy Forum schedule. Over the years our volunteers have ranged in age from 18 to 80.

As an ELF volunteer, you’ll facilitate the administrative logistics to create a warm, encouraging environment for Europe’s Christian leaders, so that they can experience God’s global community, grow spiritually, and receive teaching that will help advance their ministries. 

If you feel called to short-term mission work but hesitate at the thought of the manual labor and the challenging conditions of traditional mission trips, the Forum may be the perfect opportunity for you!


Volunteers work together to run the Forum’s annual meeting – making sure that all participants are well taken care of and that all activities run smoothly. Tasks include, but are not limited to: greeting participants in registration, video recording and monitoring Forum sessions, typing session evaluations, and working in the Forum bookstore.


The Forum is held in Wisła (pronounced “VEES-wah”), a lovely resort town located in the mountainous southwest corner of Poland, near the borders of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. All participants and volunteers have stayed at Hotel Gołębiewski for the duration of the Forum.


The 2023 Forum is planned for May 20 - 25. American volunteers depart for Poland on Tuesday, May 16, and arrive on Wednesday, May 17. Volunteers from the UK will leave home and arrive in Poland on Wednesday. You’ll return home on Saturday, May 27, after a day and a half in Krakow, where you'll have a chance to experience and better understand the culture in which you're serving.


Applying for ELF involves submitting an application form and additional materials, including your medical history, medical consent form, travel policy acceptance, and your Myers-Briggs test results.
