Council

The EBF Council which meets annually in September of each year is the main decision-making body for the EBF. The Council is made up of representatives of the Unions, IBTS Centre, additional members and certain partner mission organisations. It usually numbers between 120-130 delegates and its meetings are also a time for worship, inspiration and informal sharing and renewing of friendship between members.

Your are warmly invited to participate in the very first EBF Online on 24th and 25th September 2020!

We are all sorry that the Covid 19 pandemic makes it impossible for us to gather together as the EBF Council in St Petersburg, Russia in September as we had planned.

However, as soon as that decision was taken, we gathered together a Planning Group to start work on the very first EBF Online. Not a direct replacement for the Council but a gathering together of the EBF family to worship, to pray, to listen to God together, and to share fellowship with one another as we are able to do so online. Necessary business will be kept to a minimum, and the emphasis swill be on our supporting and encouraging one another as we navigate these uncertain times with God’s help.

EBF Online will consist of four 2-hour sessions from 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00 (CEST - Cental European Summer Time) on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September. These are two of the days already set aside for the EBF Council.

We will be using the Moodle online platform to create a ‘portal’ from which participants can enter the different sessions. We will gather all together, meet each other in small groups, regional area groups, and follow our interests in parallel online seminars. Many people will be leading us and participating in different ways, and we will also welcome leaders from the Baptist World Alliance

The Mission Projects Partners will meet on the evening of Thursday 24th from 19.00 - 20.00, and EBF Online will also include the involvement of IBTSC Amsterdam.

We have tried to make EBF Online as creative as possible, using the possibilities of technology at a time when we are not able to gather together in person. We warmly invite you to note the dates and times and plan to join us.

EBF Online registration is closed as we now start with the meetings

Registered participants will receive further information and instructions on how they can access the online experience.

We are already praying for a significant time together as we participate in EBF Online 2020.

Grace and Peace,

Meego Remmel, EBF President

Tony Peck, EBF General Secretary

Helle Liht, EBF Assitant General Secretary
