Yesterday Stefano got back
from the 2014 Acts29 Europe Conference in London.
It has been a good time of full-immersion in the Acts29 family environment.
There were 20 countries represented and church-planters and pastors from everywhere in Europe and beyond.
We've been very encouraged by the Italian presence at this conference: we were 40 adults plus 10 kids.
We've been challenged by the 4 talks of the main speakers:
Matt Chandler on Motivation,
Tim Chester on Movement,
Steve Timmis on Moment and
Reuben Hunter on Method.
Big church, Little church
with Matt Chandler,
and Planting from scratch
with Hugo Charteris
It was helpful to be reminded of the real priorities in church-planting:
our personal walk with the Lord
and a diligent preparation to faithfully preach God's Word.
It was nice also to see how many
church-plants had their first services with similar numbers and family members like us in Budrio.
