INTRODUCTION TO 3W SEMINARS
3W Seminar are weekend events that involve our Three Worlds team or guests making presentations on the challenges our churches are facing in their context. We offer a wide array of subjects and they often can be tailor-made to fit the local situation. The 3W Seminars also help build up connectivity, help our region identify the common areas of struggle, and introduce outsiders to the churches in our region. The Seminars began in 2011 in Paris I and II, London, Plovdiv (Bulgaria), and Liverpool.
3W Seminars are led by:
a 3W Team Member
and/or an Outside Expert
and/or an Outside Non-profit organization that specializes in a particular subject.
