One of the things CGN exists to do, is to provide care and coaching for those in ministry leadership. How do we help people to avoid burnout? How do we help those who are struggling with very difficult things, either in ministry or on a personal level?

This past July, we partnered with Cross Culture Missions to put on a conference specifically for those in our network who have been involved in providing aid and relief on the ground, since the war began in Ukraine.

We have ministry partners both in Ukraine and the surrounding countries who have been helping suffering and displaced people — and yet, many of these leaders are suffering and displaced themselves.

Using some of the resources and relationships God has provided us with, we were able to minister to these families at our conference center in Austria.

The following conversation is a “Field Report,” recorded at that conference, between some CGN leaders and good friends, discussing what was unique about this conference, and sharing and celebrating God’s work through Calvary Chapel in Europe over the past four decades.
