On June 11–12th, IPHC European leaders met in Amsterdam, Netherlands, along with 300 other European leaders. The reason? Two days of inspiration and networking with founder Rev. James O. Davis, leader of the first Billion Soul Network summit for Europe. The Billion Soul Network has a goal to see five million churches planted and win one billion people to Christ worldwide over the next decade.
The IPHC was well represented at the summit by delegates from Romania, Ukraine, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Belgium, as well as Regional Directors and the Continental Director.
We heard from inspiring speakers like Suliasi Kurulo, of Fiji, who has planted churches throughout the Pacific Islands and raised up missionaries to Africa who have planted over 3,000 churches on the continent. David Sobrepena, from the Philippines, challenged us to “hear from God,” then step into the vision He has given us. David Mohan from India, Martin Muytebele from Belgium, and Lion Fontaine from Canada were also some of the speakers that challenged us.
Rev. Davis has asked if we can make IPHC Romania one of the Billion Soul Network’s “Learning Center Hubs,” that can serve that region of the world and allow pastors and leaders to meet every six months for two days of training. There are 30 core courses from the Learning Center that would be covered over a two year period.
This European summit focused on inspiring pastors and leaders across Europe to prepare for the harvest, even though Europe is reluctant to embrace Christianity. It can be done! Please pray together with us that Europe will be saved.
