From 17-19 September, the EEA’s staff convened for a retreat Doorn (The Netherlands). In the wonderful atmosphere of the Het Brandpunt conference center, Julia Doxat-Purser (UK), Arie de Pater (NL), Vitaly Vlasenko (RU), Matthias Boehning (GER) and the EEA’s General Secretary Thomas Bucher (CH) spent time in prayer, discussions and planning.
As a team, we wrestled with big questions and looked back upon the Evangelical Alliance Movement’s history in order to get a better understanding of our comparative position in today’s time as well as insights into the necessary future positioning of the EEA and our place of calling. On the practical side, we discussed the theme and the general concept of next year’s General Assembly of the European Evangelical Alliance, which will take place from 8-11 June 2020 in Albania.
Further details will be communicated soon but we can already say today that we are excited to see this conference happening and to reconnect in person with our Members, Affiliates and Networks again!
