Eastern European Leadership Developement

As a simple church network has already spread across various parts of Eastern Europe, there has become a much greater need to bring key leaders together on a regular basis for prayer, fellowship, equipping, and strategizing.  This aspect of the program will bring 10-15 key leaders from Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Armenia, and Latvia (and possibly Romania and Poland) to Kiev, two or three times a year.  These times together will be crucial in building stronger teams of regional coaches and will aide in a united vision.  This will ultimately provide a greater influence for the gospel resulting in a greater expansion of the Kingdom of God in Eastern Europe.  Need:  $17,000 (Funded for 2013/2014!)

European Leadership Training

This specially designed European Leadership Training (Euro LT) will incorporate people who anticipate serving as a foreign missionary in Europe.  The prospective missionaries, alongside selected European emerging leaders, will learn and labor in a combined 6-8 week leadership training adventure. There will be many practical ministry opportunities in a cross-cultural context in a number of key countries in Central and Western Europe.  Initial plans have been developed to host one Euro LT in Torino in 2013, but there is also the potential to hold a second Euro LT in either Germany or Amsterdam in coming years.  Need: $14,000 (Funded for 2013/2014!)

Translation of GCLI Materials

Selected portions of the GCLI materials will be translated into key languages in countries where GCE already has a significant presence (such as German, Spanish, Italian and Russia).  These selected portions will be used in the leadership development process within the GCE churches, along with teachings from local and missionary pastors.     Need: $5000 (Funded for 4 languages!)

Muslim Focused Learning Communities

These learning communities will include existing Muslim background believers who are invloved in GCE churches, experienced evangelists / disciplers, local church leaders, and others in the community who are interested in furthering their personal ministry with Muslims.  These learning communities will be critical to further envision, equip, encourage, and implement a more focused ministry toward Muslims in the affected GCE churches.  Need: $1500 (Funded for 2013/2014)
