Travel from the airport: Express train (€14 per person). The Leonardo Express train is a non-stop service between FCO and Rome Termini (the main station). Trains depart every half hour from 6:23 to 23:23, and the trip takes 32 min. You can buy a ticket at the train station. After that you go to Metro Line B and take the metro to Bologna Station. Take at the station Exit Vialle della Province. And keep following the road until Via di Sant'Ippolito on your left side. From that station its a 10 minute walk.
Meeting outline: Our hope is to gather together people who are connected closely to our network and serve in network leader type roles in their city or would like to become one. We also have invited some planters that are highly connected to CTCE and want to invest in the Network.
The desired outcome of the meeting is that you would have more clear steps of how to develop your own City Network. We will hear from different leaders across Europe about how they are working to advance their movements. The program will be very interactive. We would like to see at least two participants from every mayor city in Europe.
Program highlights for our time together:
Prayer - What does it mean to be a network that is filled with Prayer?
Recruitment - How do we attract new talented people that can become church planters?
Training - How do we train church planters to equip them for their job?
Coaching - How do we serve along side those who are planting in our cities?
Finances - How do we ensure that we are good stewards of our money and get good financial direction?
Network - How do we build and grow our City Networks?
Our initial desired outcomes, with more to follow:
· Discuss and work on the network development across Europe in order to discover ways in which the network can develop in a healthy way
· Hear stories from different networks to be inspired by what is happening and learn best practices
· Talk about the structure of our network on a regional and subregional level
· Have specific coaching conversations to help you develop a strategy for your network for the near future
