GCE Conferences and Events
GCE seeks to promote both healthy fellowship and equipping through various conferences and events. We host a bi-annual Awaken conference, an annual Pastor’s Summit and other retreats and spiritual excursions for those in ministry or who simply want to renew their faith. Below are some of the conferences and events offered:
GCE Awaken Conference
Every other year, between Christmas and New Years, GCE hosts the Awaken Conference for our churches to come together in worship, vision and equipping. Set in locations around the continent, the Awaken Conference is an inspiring opportunity to learn more about GCE while interacting with men and women from across Europe in a setting where God is exalted and faith is encouraged.
GCE Pastor’s Summit
Each Fall, GCE invites European leaders to come together for prayer, vision, casting unity, and to learn from one another. Some years are focused on the pastoral leaders, others include spouses and emerging leaders who are being trained or developed in local leadership. Every year is a time for leaders to refocus on our God who leads the ministries and churches we serve!
Simple Church Conference
A simple church network has already spread across various parts of Eastern Europe. Currently there is a great need to bring key leaders together on a regular basis for prayer, fellowship, equipping, and strategizing. Every June 10-20 key leaders from Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Armenia, Latvia, Romania and Poland meet in Kiev, Ukraine to build unity and stronger relationships between GCE missionary coaches and these leading brothers. These building and practical ministry times together provide a much stronger team of home-church regional coaches that therefore have a clearer and much more united vision.
GCE Missionary Retreat
Easter is a special time of year to remember the source and reason for our belief. For those who have dedicated themselves to cross-cultural mission efforts in Europe, it is also an annual time to come together for encouragement, sharing of ideas and input. Not only is the retreat geared to the missionaries, but their families are edified as well.
Into The Wilderness
We all need occasions from time to time where we can reconnect with the very core of our faith in Jesus Christ. For many, getting out into nature is a very helpful setting to renew devotion, reset spiritual direction and gain fresh insight into our spiritual journey. Into the Wilderness provides excursions into the Italian Alps for a week of intense, yet personal time with God.
