October / November / December 2023


Our September Outback season was greatly blessed – again and again, new people were confronted with a godly opportunity of resolving many of their problems, under the cross!

I’m curious about your perspective, but from where I’m sitting life seems to be speeding up with unprecedented pace! To an extent that I had hardly a chance to write our UPDATE newsletter on time! A lot of time spent on planes, in meetings, conferences, etc. but the outcome is very positive – we see God’s momentum in our work, everyone on our team is motivated and gives their heart towards growing God’s Kingdom! And as everybody have different talents, the outcome is often surprising, in a positive way!

In the coming Christmas Season our whole team sends you special wishes of having quality time with the Lord and family.

Future of Outback Polska

Our September Outback season was greatly blessed – again and again, new people were confronted with a godly opportunity of resolving many of their problems, under the cross! We had many more candidates to attend Outback weekends than available spaces, therefore next year – 3 new locations are planned to launch, led by local believers who also experienced its impact in their own lives! Please pray for Gdansk, Poznan and Bieszczady (on top of the present h2o and Podkarpacie venues). God willing, we shall have 8 or 9 Outback weekends next year! It is a major effort for our team of staff and volunteers, but fortunately our US friends expressed their willingness to help as well! Filip and I have just returned from the US JH Outback Board meeting in Birmingham, AL. It was a wonderful time of constructive fellowship with wonderful, godly people, all believing that the work with families and young people is very effective!

E-coach conference

We also had our annual e-coach conference – this time held in nearby Ustron. We had 130 attendees and an amazing time of fellowship, sharing, carrying one-another’s burdens, and listening to thought-provoking talks starting with a question: Is it worthwhile? Yes, we agreed that committing thousands of hours to converse with people seeking the best path in their life is worthwhile! The direct fulfillment of Acts 1:8! Staying in the center of His will gives us a purpose and joy..

Music and worship have an important place at our E-coach conference.

Surprise, surprise, our whole family brother and sister with spouses are ecoaching on various platforms of our digital disciple making

Trip to USA

While in America, we were invited to events connected with the 25th anniversary of establishing the International Leadership Institute. We have been closely cooperating with them since 2006 and our personal friendship with Wes and Joy Griffin turned to Wes being a chairman of our US Board of the New Europe Communications. The Lord is using ILI in a wonderful way, with over 400 000 leaders in over 165 countries who were trained in the 8 core values of a disciple. Poland is one of those countries. Cordial fellowship with many old and new friends, altogether very encouraging.

Wonderful celebration of 25 years of incredible outreach of International Leadership Institute.

Another reason for this trip was to talk to potential users of our digital discipleship platform. We had a number of great encounters, and we believe we are moving forward. A good tool in the hands of dedicated, committed people could bring a real acceleration of reaching millions for Christ!

Ambassadors The CHOSEN

We had also a great meeting with “ambassadors” of The Chosen film series. It was held in Gliwice, some people were traveling 400 miles to join the group! It is all in preparation for a Polish premiere of season IV, after Los Angeles and London – in top Warszawa cinema planned January 26, 2024. Several actors will join us from the USA! We pray it will bring a huge promotion and publicity, for the glory of the Lord!

The CHOSEN ambassadors enthusiastic about using this film to reach more people in Poland.

Upcoming changes

We have also recently completed the work on our new “constitution” – where after 48 years we redefined our vision, mission, and values. We committed to it literally hundreds of hours, as we prayed that it shall reflect what is in our hearts and become a clear guideline for the future. It was accepted already by our General Assembly. We want to be very clear describing our best model of being a follower of Christ., both for staff and volunteers, but also all thousands of the “new” people that are joining the family of God. Here are the key elements of it:
