Dear Friends,

The EBF Youth and Children Workers' Department is ready to begin the registration for the 2018 annual conference!

What:                         TEAMWORK – Recruiting, equipping and freeing people for ministry. Worship, Bible studies, plenaries, small group discussions, panel sessions, workshops and lots of other opportunities for sharing and interaction

When:                       January 18-22 (the conference begins with a local cultural event on Thursday evening, January 18, and ends with worship and Communion on Sunday evening, January 21. January 22 is the departure day.)

Where:                       Zagreb, Croatia. Our good friends from the Baptist union of Croatia are willing to share with us their wonderful capital city, renovated church building and warm hospitality.

Cost:                          In order to secure comparatively equal access to the conference for representatives from all countries within the EBF, we set different conference fees depending on the region. Please see the attached file 2018 Zagreb, Croatia - Conference Fees. The conference fee could be paid either by bank transfer or in cash at the conference. 

Accommodation:    The conference fee covers accommodation in rooms for two, three or four people for 4 nights and meals on the days of the conference (starting with dinner on Thursday and ending with breakfast on Monday). Conference participants will be staying at Chill Out Hostel and meetings will be held at the Baptist church located at a 5-minute walk from the hostel. You can check the website of the Chill Out hostel at: www.chillout-hostel-zagreb.com
A limited number of single rooms are available for the price of 80 euro added to the conference fee for the 4 days of the conference.

Your input:               Please be prepared to share with others about your ministry. Stories and pictures are always welcome! If you bring a presentation on your ministry on paper we could post these around for people to see and open a discussion.
The conference is also a convenient time to pay the annual contribution of your union/youth organisation directly to the EBF Y&C treasurer. Detailed information about annual contributions from each county will be sent to you shortly.
