SEEKING TO REIGNITE, UNIFY, AND STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH IN EUROPE

In May of 2025, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) is hosting the European Congress on Evangelism in Berlin—25 years after the Amsterdam 2000 conference prepared thousands of ministry leaders to “testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24, ESV).

While much has changed in Europe since the conference in Amsterdam, the condition of the human heart hasn't changed. More than ever, Franklin Graham, BGEA's president and CEO, believes there is an urgent and critical need for churches to share the hope and truth of God's Word in their communities—the only message that has the power to change lives.

Church leaders from 57 countries and territories in Europe are invited to attend, and this conference is expected to be the most representative gathering of Christian leaders in Europe since Amsterdam 2000. For three days and in eight languages, well-known Christian speakers will focus on the theme of Romans 1:16—being unashamed of the Gospel of Christ—to encourage believers to reignite the church with a passion for proclamation evangelism.

“The church in Europe needs to rise up with fresh confidence. The European Congress on Evangelism will provide the inspiration, strength, and confidence in the Gospel that will enable us to do this," said Dr. Hugh Osgood, president of the UK-based ministry Churches in Communities International. "Let's prioritize this opportunity to be together to advance God's kingdom."

WHO WILL ATTEND

Attendance to the European Congress on Evangelism is by invitation only, and is limited to those whose citizenship and evangelistic work is in Europe.

“IN OUR CHALLENGING TIMES CHRISTIANS AND CHURCHES MUST JOIN HANDS FOR SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST ALL OVER EUROPE AGAIN. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE UPCOMING EUROPEAN CONGRESS ON EVANGELISM AND TRUST IT WILL TRIGGER ENTHUSIASM AND A FRESH COMMITMENT TO DO SO”
