European Leadership Forum '18 - "Finding Strength in Christ for Ministry" - Michael Reeves - Talk 5
The sad reality is that the world of Christian leadership is littered with stories of leaders who have given up or burned out. How can we find the strength we need for years of healthy and fruitful ministry? This talk applies the gospel framework set out by the apostle Paul in Colossians to this question.

The European Leadership Forum meets annually in Central Europe to unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders to renew the biblical church and evangelise Europe. As a coalition of evangelical Christian groups, they seek to do what no single organisation could do alone: provide a bridge between God’s global resources and local leaders from all over Europe. The Forum consists of 27 Networks focused on everything from apologetics to science, media to politics. This annual meeting now brings together 800 participants from more than 40 countries.
