Training Worship Leaders in Portgual, Spain & Brussels

Serving with me on the teaching team were members of Cornerstone Jackson's worship team, pictured here with members of our host church's worship team.

We had a number of ministry opportunities this spring in Europe.

I had the privilege of:
• Leading worship in Lugano, Switzerland and Milan, Italy.
• Directing our first ConVerge Portugal with 60+ in attendance
• Directing our fourth ConVerge in Spain with 72 in attendance
• Leading a Focus training session for Brussels Christian Center’s worship team
• And meeting with planning teams for upcoming events later this year.

We're excited about our summer and fall training opportunities coming up as well as a special event I'll be helping with in December (see below for info on that.)


Summer is Camp Time!


Our location for Immerse 2017 is Continental Theological Seminary, just west of Brussels. CTS offers a great location with provision for meals and lodging as well as workshops, general sesions and recreational fun.

One of my dreams for the European Worship Institute has been to offer more intensive training opportunities.

This summer I have two such opportunities:
* The iYouth Camp in Germany, where I'll teach piano and voice workshops to European youth.
* Immerse 2017 in Brussels, the first worship training camp organized by the Worship Institute..

Please pray for us as we work toward these opportunities to sow into the lives of Europeans.


Life Church Milan Gets Approval for Building

I'm standing in the doorway of the new location for Life Church Milan - right in the heart of the city.

One of the biggest challenges facing church plants in Europe is finding adequate space for meetings.

Life Church Milan has waited for almost a year for the church board and members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church to vote to allow them to meet permanently on Sundays in their building (since the Adventists meet on Saturdays.)

Pastor Josh Jones just informed me that the church board has approved the deal and they expect the church members to vote in favor this month.

Now that Life Church Milano has a home, the church can more easily reach internationals in this bustling north Italian city.


Christmas in May!


Yep! I’ve been listening to Christmas music already!

Brussels Christian Center has invited me to produce and direct their Christmas outreach program in December!

I’m so excited to be involved in this project again, which reaches 1,000 people over a weekend of concerts.


Have you visited our new 'Elevate Europe' website?

Elevate Europe2

We just completed an overhaul of our ministry site, www.elevateeurope.com. Formerly 'chezslaughter.com', we changed the name to more accurately reflect our ministry in Europe.

The site features updated information and a blog which we'll use to communicate ministry news.

Take a look and let us know what you think!
