Many events occur outside of the Forum's annual meeting. To learn more about the various offerings, please keep reading.
FORUM NATIONAL INITIATIVES
A Forum National Initiative (FNI) brings Forum resources to your national context. These can be shaped to meet whatever needs you feel your country has. In the past, FNIs have included retreats, concerts, and lecture tours by Forum speakers.
FORUM NATIONAL CONFERENCES
A Forum National Conference (FNC) is an opportunity to make the annual Forum experience available to your country in your language. FNCs can be modelled after the Forum structure, hosting multiple networks with various tracks of workshops. They offer a great opportunity to unite those working for the cause of the Gospel in your country.
CAMBRIDGE LEADERS NETWORK
The Cambridge Leaders Network (CLN) is a weeklong programme for emerging leaders held each July in Cambridge, England. The CLN is designed to help key, emerging leaders develop skills and think about leadership from a biblical perspective and worldview. The program consists of text based discussions, lecture and discussion with experienced leaders, case studies written by participants, one-on-one mentoring, and strategy and project assessment. A limited number of partial scholarships/bursaries are available.
CAMBRIDGE SCHOLARS NETWORK
The Cambridge Scholars Network (CSN) is a weeklong programme for PhD students held each July in Cambridge, England. The CSN is designed to help young scholars establish a spiritual context for academic study, develop the critical thinking skills that are essential for a successful academic career, and think through relevant apologetic issues. A limited number of partial scholarships/bursaries are available.
FORUM ONLINE COMMUNITY
The Forum online community makes Forum resources available online in the form of video and audio recordings, articles, and interactive webinars. Attending a webinars is a lot like going to a Forum workshop—it provides solid teaching by a Forum speaker and the opportunity to engage in a discussion following the presentation. Webinars are free to anyone who’d like to participate; all that’s required is that you register for the ones you’d like to attend.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE
The Leadership Development Initiative (LDI) serves European evangelical leaders by providing long-term leadership mentoring and discipleship training. Those interested in participating in the LDI must commit to attending a weeklong retreat at English L'Abri, a minimum of three 1.5 hour webinars, and a Pre-Forum Conference.

PERSUASIVE EVANGELISM INITIATIVE

EUROPEAN EMERGING LEADERS STRATEGY
The European Emerging Leaders Strategy, which the Forum hopes to launch in 2014, is a fully-accredited programme of study towards a Master of Arts in Christian Thought. The purpose of the program is to equip and develop a new generation of solid evangelical thinkers and leaders through a “hybrid” curriculum that combines short-term intensive classroom sessions with web-based learning. Key Forum partners and speakers will contribute as lecturers to ensure a high-quality programme.
HEAVEN IN A NIGHTCLUB JAZZ TOUR
The Heaven in a Nightclub Jazz Tour (Jazz Tour for short) offers an opportunity to share the Gospel through a 90 minute jazz concert that explores the Christian roots of jazz. In March of 2012, more than 1,500 people, including many unbelievers, attended Jazz Tour concerts in eleven different European countries.
