Our Vision

The NLI Network sees Europe being spiritually, socially and economically transformed by God through the passion and collaborative action of Christ followers.

Our Mission

The NLI Network exists to connect and partner individuals, ministries and organisations to bring creative solutions for Kingdom impact.

For Europe For Change

We see pastors from all all over Europe coming together and seeing they are not all that different after all. We see men and women leaders hearing for the first time that someone else has the same struggle as them. We see ministry leaders making life long friendships. We see pastors coming not for the latest trend but for real answers to the things that keep them awake at night. We see people walking away encouraged and with the strength to keep going. We see people walking away with that one idea that will get them out of a rut and make a difference. We see people having revelation and ideas spinning new ideas. We see young people encouraged to try new things and older people ready to give them a go. When a conference is over we see a lot of unnecessary burden left behind and it replaced with a spring in their step. We see revelation. We see courage. We see togetherness.
