We are delighted to be participating in Cross–Current, a course run by IFES Europe & Eurasia, It is a conference and mentor–based program aimed at helping you as graduates, connect your Christian worldview beliefs with your professional working life, wherever you are and whatever you do. We also want to help you grow in godly character so that you can become more effective Ambassadors for Christ in your workplaces, professions and societies.
“You cannot blame meat for going rotten, that’s just what meat does. But you can blame the salt for not being there.”
Rev Dr John R W Stott
Cross–Current Professional Groups draw people across the continent of Europe who work in the same professional area to learn from the Bible, and from the example of older believers in their fields, what impact their faith makes on their profession. This is often the only place for many of our members to meet older believers in their profession. We currently have groups running in Science, Environmental Science, Business, Law and Politics. Media and Medical Thought Leaders will be coming soon.
City Groups are comprised of graduates from different professions but a single geographical context. For these groups, we are developing a new purpose–designed curriculum to help them develop Christian character in their workplace as they seek to live and work in a manner which reflects their Christian faith and which is often counter–cultural. There are City Groups popping up all over the place – find out where on our City Groups page.
