Live - Keswick Convention 2019 - 17 July 9.30am - Lecture 1 - Longing: Ours, Theirs and Everyone’s
It is curious that in our deeply divided world, humanity seems easily able to reach consensus that 'things are not as they should be'. Our problem lies in our failure to agree on the 'what should be' bit. For followers of Jesus, the Great Commission is a vital part of 'what should be' - good news of great joy shared with the whole world! Yet enthusiasm for it, and the language used to articulate it, has shifted constantly through church history. 'Longing', as both word and paradigm, brilliantly captures an underappreciated but powerful aspect of God’s design for global mission.
Jason Mandryk was born, grew up, and studied in Canada before moving to the UK to join the Operation World team. For 20 years, he has served through multiple editions and publications of this ministry, as researcher, editor, author, and team leader. He is thrilled to minister in an exciting time when we are seeing the increasing convergence of information, prayer, and mission. He also enjoys being outdoors amidst God’s created grandeur; Keswick allows the best of both passions!

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.
