EMCC 2022

Relationships in a world of conflict and chaos

Loving God, your neighbour, yourself, your enemy


The world seems to be increasingly polarised, with relationships characterised by animosity and divisiveness even in the church and mission.

How do we embrace and foster authentically loving and sacrificial relationships in our teams and communities?

Our Bible studies in Romans 12 will inform our thinking on crucial relationships such as team, church, family, agency, spouse, nationals, persecutors, leaders and God as we see to share the gospel with others not only in what we do and say, but in who we are and how we live.

Dates: 28th – 31st March 2022
Location: Budapest, Hungary

We’re delighted that our Bible readings will be led by Jonathan Ward of Pierres Vivantes, and that our plenary speakers are:

Harry Hoffmann (Global Member Care Network) on Loving God
Mihai Lundell (OCI) on Loving Your Neighbour
Christine Schuppener (Schuppener Global Transitions) on Loving Yourself
Anne Reitsema (Medair) on Loving Your Enemy

We have a great number of workshops planned and among our confirmed workshop leaders are: Alex Galloway, John Harris, Marion Knell, Rafael Năstase, Christian Quartier, Maryann Richard, Reidun Haugen Dalseth, Stefana Racorean, Amrei Wehmeyer, Maria Techow and also our plenary speakers Harry Hoffmann, Mihai Lundell, Christine Schuppener and Anne Reitsema.
