Children and Teens

The Europe Conference is a family conference and the Children and Teens program have always been an integral part of the program. This year is no different.


The conference team understands that budgets are often tight, so as far as possible, we have tried to keep costs as low as we can. However costs from Schönblick have increased since the last conference two years ago.


Schönblick Guest House and Conference Center combines tradition with contemporary facilities. The Center is located on 10 hectares in a quiet and idyllic location adjacent to a forest. It has a great range of facilities for relaxing, fun and plenty of space to sit with friends and chat. 

Free Time

There will be a few hours of free time each afternoon in which you can relax, enjoy conversation with other workers or explore the local area. Also one afternoon will be completely free (from lunch until dinner). Like last conference, we will not be organising one official outing, but there are a number of great activities in the area that you can discover with other conference goers.


The program is a balance between general sessions with a speaker, break-out sessions, worship and devotions, time with your National Organisation as well as seminars. Like always there will be time set aside during the day and each evening to relax and spend time catching up with old friends and making new ones. And of course, one afternoon is set aside completely for free time.

What to Bring

The conference centre is well equipped but there are a few items that we'd like to suggest you would want to bring. So read more for the list of things that you should bring with you to the conference.

Prayer Groups

We are calling this year's conference Renew and Connect. This name reflects our desire for this conference to be about more than just receiving teaching. We desire that workers experience renewal in their lives.  Prayer is not only vital for our life with God; it is also a powerful means to connect with others who understand the challenges of cross-cultural ministry. This year's conference will include time one afternoon to lift one another up in prayer. More information will be given at the conference.
