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

Mal Fletcher is amazing; you should hear him preach. It's incredible. He came to my church in Norwich, England and just blew us away.

Dear Mal, I saw you some years ago in Lisbon. I was deeply blessed by your prophetic spirit for the nations. I'm especially moved by your messages that speak about being an influence in our world...

I am constantly blessed & inspired by reading the Daily Recharge. Thankyou Mal for being a faithful mouthpiece for God and being willing to pay the price that is necessary if one is going to minister life!
