Acts 29 East to West Conference Hightlights!

Here is some highlights of some of the staff's attendance at a Leadership/Pastors Conference in Prague last month! It was great and we have brought home so much info that we will be applying to OUR fellowship here at JFB!

"Continuing Education..."

"...we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said amongst the nations, 'the Lord has done great things for them.' The Lord has done great things for us and we are glad..." Psalms 126: 1b-3

Thanks to all who accompanied Sharon and I to Amsterdam and Prague for the 2015 East to West Conference! 250 people from 18 nations! We learned so much which we pray we now can bring home and apply to the context of our own fellowship community...

East to West Acts 29 Conference in Prague

Greetings everyone! A bunch of us from the JFB staff are in Prague, Czech Republic for the Acts 29 Conference here. We are all being blessed and learning and engaging in ways that we have not experienced for a very long time. We have been hearing from a couple of the 'stars' of this movement, but also from some of the young pastors and missionaries that are just beginning of or in the midst of the early battle of church planting and development. How refreshing! That methodology is not something we often see in the US at conferences there. The people are from 18 different countries and therefore our conversations have been rich and informative as we learn what God is doing in cultures and societies around the world. Thank you for your support and your prayers. Everyone is healthy and after a week together I genuinely still like everyone traveling with me! Good weather, good coffee, awesome architecture, and wonderful educational conversations. Who could ask for more? More to come...
