A VITAL PART OF THE LAUSANNE EUROPE 20/21 CONVERSATION
WHAT IS AN IMPACT GROUP?
The Impact Groups will do five things
Reflect on Crucial Issues
Reflect on and discuss some of the crucial issues for mission in Europe today that we will be addressing in the Gathering.
Engage with Scriptures
Engage with Scripture, and particularly the chosen text for the Gathering, Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.
Consider aspects of discipleship.
Think about the challenge of mobilisation for mission in Europe and the world.
Pray together for Europe.
WHO IS IN AN IMPACT GROUP?
Impact Groups may be comprised of people from your community and networks, whether local or not. Perhaps the group already exists in the form of a fraternity of pastors in your city, a group of leaders in your organisation, or as a bible study group in your church. Or perhaps you will select them more consciously across your networks. Typically, they will include people who have a heart for others and a desire to see change in their country or locality.
All delegates will receive a monthly email with links to the articles we want you to read, the questions and discussion prompts to facilitate the conversation, Scriptures to reflect on and points for prayer. And after each Impact Group we want you to feed back to us briefly online your conclusions, questions or insights as a contribution to the Conversation. The Impact Group is an opportunity to bring along others to be full participants in LE20/21, so that they can influence many more, and impact Europe for Jesus. We are only asking for one to two hours a month. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to impact those around you.
For your convenience we have written a standard letter that you can use to invite people to join your Impact Group.
