“On the road home: How to journey safely” 11 -14 June 2019

The General Assembly of the European Evangelical Alliance is a place to connect and to be equipped. It is a platform where general secretaries, affiliate members and chairs of Hope for Europe networks bond, connect, find better synergy of how to support one another and profit from each other.

Bible study, thematic lectures, fellowship, sharing from the regions, connecting with EEA and its partners and staff will be in line with the theme ‘On the road home: How to journey safely’.


During this General Assembly we will focus on us as Europeans and focusing on the message of the gospel. We will address not only our longing for safety but also our concerns about the Europe in which we are living. We will talk about the reasons (real or perceived) that cause Europeans to feel unsafe in their own countries and continent, and we will attempt to unmask these concerns and challenge them in the light of the Bible. We want to encourage the Church to look at its own “fears” and concerns; to overcome them with love; to find refuge and safety in God and then to reach out with the message of hope and love to all who live on this continent.


We will build on the Hope Event in Tallinn: The goal is to pray and think through these topics and come up with questions and answers which include National EAs, Affiliates and Networks. We want to see even more joint ideas being born and new partnerships established which play on the strength of the different participants involved in this General Assembly.

On Wednesday afternoon, 12 June, we will celebrate the official handover of the General Secretary of the German Evangelical Alliance. After over 30 years Hartmut Steeb passes on the baton to Reinhardt Schink.
