7 years ago, EuroQuest was nothing but a dream in the heart of a handful of missionaries. Seeing a generation of young leaders gathering together from across Europe to connect, dream, and serve together. That was the vision, mission, and hope! Serving a God that specializes in what Ephesians describes as “many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine through the power at work in us” (Ephesians 3:20 VOICE) makes dreams turn into realities time after time, after time!
At The Awakening, we are celebrating the incredible things that took place at the 3rd edition of EuroQuest! From August 3-6, we gathered in the beautiful Hungarian countryside at the Zichy Castle in Vajta. It was awesome to see people from our IPHC family in 11 different nations come together for this time of worship, growth, celebration, and empowerment!
The combination of general session, workshops, and breakouts provided a great environment for spiritual development, visioneering, and discipleship. God allowed us to heave a world-class lineup of IPHC speakers and workshop leaders headlined by our Presiding Bishop A.D. Beacham Jr., Susan Beacham, David Trujillo, Madeline Lafferty, Jamine Crilly, Timothy Meadors, Max Barroso, Tibi Bulzan, Krisztina Revesz, Femke Helland, and Matt Helland.
In the middle of all the fun and fellowship, the leadership development and spiritual formation emphasis is the main driver of this event. The practical training and some of the topics covered in the workshops and breakout sessions were: Apologetics, Evangelism, Church Planting, Media in Ministry, Prayer and Prophetic Ministry, Leadership Principles, Women in Ministry, Arts in Ministry, and IPHC Theological Roots.
One of the purposes for EQ is to serve as a connecting hub for emerging leaders and young adults! It was great to be able to highlight and provide a platform for Discipleship Beyond (Turkey), Jesus Revolution (Norway), Converge (Belgium), Catalyst (Belgium), People to People Europe, and Worship Camp (Hungary) to share their vision and ministry opportunities with everyone present through their booths, videos, or stage presentations! It is awesome to see the mobilization taking place literally “all over the place”.
The final remarks regarding EQ should be the continuation of the passage referenced above: “to Him be all glory in the church and in Jesus the Anointed from this generation to the next, forever and ever. Amen.” (Eph. 3:21 VOICE)
