A conference for evangelical leaders, normally by invitation only, has been made free and open for everyone to attend online.
The European Leadership Forum is an annual conference that seeks to equip people who work in ministry through talks on Bible teaching, sharing the gospel, church planting and training in specific areas of mentoring.
It began in 2003 with Ravi Zacharias and Don Carson as its main speakers
The event was meant to be held in Poland this year with 800 leaders from 59 countries but will now be online due to coronavirus, with organisers encouraging Christians to sign up.
On 22nd-28th May, there will be sessions taught by over 100 speakers including: Oxford professor John Lennox; JP Moreland, Professor of Philosophy; Os Guinness, apologist; Peter J. Williams, principal of Tyndale House in Cambridge; Sarah Breuel, director of Revive Europe; Rico Tice, senior minister of evangelism at All Souls Langham Place and creator of Christianity Explored, Nola Leach, CEO of CARE and Ann Blaser from the Bible Study Fellowship.

Organisers are inviting more people to register, saying: "Come interact with brothers and sisters from across the globe. We believe you will be challenged and encouraged as a result."
Over 1,500 additional evangelical leaders from around the world have signed up since registration opened.
Someone who has spoken there in the past, John Piper, author and founder of Desiring God Ministries, said that the conference: "is a catalyst for the advancement and deepening of evangelical gospel ministries throughout Europe. My participation in one of their gatherings was an education and encouragement for me, as I interacted with pastors and educators and business people from countries I have never been to. This is a network-spawning ministry that creates lines of friendship and communication whose fruitfulness in strategic biblical initiatives is significant and growing."
