The Strategic Leadership Consultation (SLC)


The Strategic Leadership Consultation (SLC) is Europe's unique high-level, forward-looking Christian leadership summit, hosted annually by Next Wave International.

Brief History & Purpose


The Strategic Leadership Consultation (SLC) summit was pioneered by Mal Fletcher in 1997, as a means of bringing together leaders of major church networks across Europe for high-level talks on Europe's future and how it might be impacted by the Christian message.

Mal says, 'More than ever, the European church needs a vibrant voice that creatively engages the culture and reshapes it in a positive direction. The SLC event is all about addressing that challenge - with creativity, compassion and courage.'

The SLC2012: STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP summit, held in Spain, once again brought together significant church network leaders for a high-impact round-table event, helping them to redefine the aims and practical strategies of their churches and organisations. Guest contributors included Major General Tim Cross (ret), CBE and Jim Wallace AM, head of the Australian Christian Lobby.

Guest contributors in past SLC summits have included Professor Alister McGrath, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, Dr. Patrick Dixon, Dr. Joel Edwards, Dr. Tom Sine, Reinhard Bonnke, Dr. Tony Campolo, Gerald Coates, Winkie Pratney, Arthur Blessitt, Rev. Steve Chalke, MBE and more.

Following the 2006 SLC event, highlights were compiled into a special 6-part TV series which was seen around the globe.

The core purpose of the SLC events is to provide a forum for strategic discussions on engaging with Europe's future and changing it with the power of the Gospel, through strong local churches, networks of churches and national ministries.

The core goals are to:
  • develop new paradigms for thinking and action across Europe
  • encourage a vision for Europe
  • share ideas and resources to reach Europe
  • facilitate alliances to change Europe

Man this site rocks! I get fired up on this site every week and challenged by the daily recharges, but the best thing is to see how you guys are finding ways to communicate Jesus to today's people in a way they can get it. I've got plenty of ideas from you for my service here in Japan. Keep it up!

I was reading 'Not My Fault'. As a pastor I read your articles with great interest -- very insightful. Thanks for your prophetic voice to this Post Modern Generation.

Reading your messages serves as gas for the fire of my spirit. You always keep the gospel where it belongs and needed most - the world and secular thought life.
