Focus on the Future Tour - Helsinki

Added 11 January 2013 View full list    Print version    

‘Those who would shape the future,’ says Mal Fletcher, ‘must engage present change.’

That philosophy is the driving force behind the 2020Plus Focus on the Future European tour, sponsored by Next Wave International in conjunction with 2020Plus.

Following successful events in the UK and Oslo, the tour moved on to Helsinki, capital of Finland.

The Helsinki half-day event was hosted by Pastor Mika Yrjola, lead pastor of the city’s well known Saalem church.

The intensive event gathered church leaders from across the city and further afield, for keynote presentations from Mal Fletcher on the future of technology, human rights, social ethics and more.

The goal of the event was to equip pastors to understand likely future change and prepare for it. As a result, pastors will be able to equip their people to proactively engage and, in some cases, overcome some of the changes.

The feedback on the day was very positive, with leaders sharing how it had inspired them think more long-term and appreciate their calling to their cities.

Our thanks go to Pastors Mika and Rommy Yrola for their invaluable support in identifying invitees and bringing together the logistics of the event.

Future events are intended for other centres in Europe.

My son is 21 months old & has full Edward's Syndrome. He is a happy, beautiful child & gives so much to so many people. His life is as worthy as any other child. I believe the medical profession should help parents to want to give their children a chance of survival.

Mal, thankyou for provoking me to think more. Your ministry is giving people a real wake up call, provoking Christians to seriously think about how we ought to be responding to issues like celebrity.
