The setting on the San Diego harbor and marina couldn’t have been more beautiful. Blue skies, warm breezes, and great connections among guests. Momentum Europe’s “Rendezvous 2017” was memorable in every respect.
Eight countries in Europe were represented by Cru staff and ministry guests. We heard stories of reaching out to the most influential people in Florence, Italy and were inspired by Cru’s Vice President for Leader Impact, Dela Adadevoh, who eloquently spoke from the book of Acts regarding the Apostle Pauls outreach to influencers from different domains of society.
We were encouraged by one of the guests from Germany who spoke about how the immigrant situation there is opening the doors to spiritual renewal, and we were grateful for the stories from Romania and Albania about how their partnership with Momentum Europe is bearing much fruit.
For the returning partners, as well as the first time guests, new and meaningful relationships were formed – not only with each other but with new friends from Poland, Czech Republic and Ukraine, among others. And for each participant the invitation to a “purposeful journey” was clear.
God’s time for Europe is upon us. The opportunity to journey together to help connect influential Europeans to the love of Jesus is full of strategic purpose. The Rendezvous in San Diego was more than just a rendezvous. It was in fact a time of mobilizing new partners and resources for the cause of Christ in Europe. We were encouraged in so many ways.
We are deeply grateful for those who invested in, who prayed for and who participated in the Rendezvous. There are many journeys we take in life. The Rendezvous was a journey with eternal consequence. We hope we’ll see YOU at the next one!
