Theme: How does God speak in my every day life & How can I share my Christian faith with my friends?

We invite you to join us for “Student Equip”. This conference takes place every year in September and aims to train students and graduates in important topics for their everyday life. This year we will focus on the topics Decision Making and Friendship Evangelism. The location of the conference is in Saalfelden, Austria.  

How does God help me in my everyday decisions? What are the ways and consequences of listening to God?

Our first speaker Kathrin Thiel will talk about this topic and share her experiences with us.

The second topic of friendship evangelism will be led by our other speaker Nay Dawson. She will focus on the question ”How can I  share my everyday life with God with my friends?” Together we will also look at ways of reading the Bible with friends or fellow students. At the conference there is also time in between for sports, free time and community.

Nay’s seminars are in English and the other talks will be translated from German into English.

When you are registered you will receive an email with further information two weeks before the conference.

We will sleep on mattresses – please take a sleeping bag with you to the conference.

If there will be any changes because of COVID-19 you will be informed per email.
