Hope21 networking

Had an interesting day in Haarlem at a networking day organised by the Evangelical Alliance and Hoop21. Our colleague Hans Luttik hosted the day. I am truly impressed with the way things are developing in Haarlem. Churches are working together, trying to seize opportunities to make a positive difference in the city. In the morning I joined the workshop with Jos Douma, pastor of the Fonteinkerk and rather well known because of his ‘Passion for preaching‘. We talked about the challenges of being church in the city, and the changes it requires to be truly relevant and outgoing.
In the afternoon I met up with Jeff Fountain, director of YWAM Europe. I read his book ‘Living as people of hope’ during our Mallorca conference, and it inspired me a lot. We talked about vision for Europe and how this affects local efforts. Jeff writes a ‘weekly word’, make sure you get a subscription of you want to stay up to date with European wide developments. All together an inspiring day.
