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

I love your "innocence vs ignorance" idea (Daily Recharge). We all can return to that place of innocence even if others have previously stolen it or we have lost it. Thanks for all your encouragement every morning.

I think yours was the best and most succinct critique I've yet read on 'The Da Vinci Code'. As you say, we can still use it as a platform for presenting the real gospel.

I met Mal almost 20 years ago here in Melbourne, Australia. I studied under him at Harvest BibleCollege. It was an amazing time; I got a lot out of it. You're an inspiration Mal...
