Developing Principled Christian Leaders

leaders

The church needs leaders rooted in Christ, who have a vision for changing the world. Today’s young people have fearless hearts, vibrant ideas and a passion for ministry. Their talents should be nurtured to shape the church’s path into the future. The church must recruit young people for ministry, equip them to be efficient leaders and be open to where they want to lead us. We must also strengthen lay members, who are ministering at every level of the church.

All conferences are offering programmes and seminars training lay people of all ages to serve in and outside of the church.

Lay speaking programs train people to serve through preaching, leading small groups, leading worship and leading different kinds of ministry in the church and in the community.

The Timothy leadership programme for youth is developed in Norway, where it has a significant impact on shaping the leaders for the present and the future. The programme has even been introduced in Lithuania.

Each annual conference organizes leadership seminars focusing on discipleship, children, youth, families, migration, diaconal ministry, administration, spirituality, serving with spiritual gifts and passions and much more.

The next major event for the entire episcopal area is:

19 - 22 September, 2019 at the Baltic Mission Center, Tallinn

ABOUT US

mapThe Nordic and Baltic episcopal area covers 7 countries Denmark,Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. We speak 9 official languages and use English as a common language.

Bishop emblemUnited Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We value the intellect and modern science, at the same time we see the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions and to wrestle with difficult issues, and we do so with grace and compassion.

Methodists emphasize personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We value well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that is lively, and small groups where people can grow in faith.
