Friday, March 29-Monday, April 1, 2019, Maastricht, The Netherlands.
There is a Pastors pre-conference: Thursday, 28 March – Friday, 29 March, 2019

Come together for the weekend to catch the vision of how discipleship happens through CBS. Walk away with new friends, ideas, tools, and resources you can use in your ministry.

What is the focus of the conference?

We’ll focus on growing as disciples of Jesus who are

  • Learning constantly about following Jesus and developing their leadership skills and…
  • Leading other disciples who are also becoming Learning Leaders

The 5 Essentials of CBS form a tool that can help people grow personally as followers of Jesus, as well as to grow and develop other leaders who will carry on the vision of being life-long learners of Jesus who invite others to join them on the journey. We will be learning to make disciples who make disciples, obeying Jesus’s Great Commission: “as you go, disciple people in all nations.”
