Welcome to Vineyard Nordic Leaders Summit 2023

Join us in Copenhagen! We are so expectant for all that God will do as we gather together from our Nordic countries.

Our theme this year is Inside Out – The need to lead from a healthy place. This year our focus will be on growing a healthy spirituality that comes from a life lived from the inside out.

We expect God to challenge and encourage us at this Summit through inspiring teachings and worship, but also through fellowship and conversations with one another over coffee and meals. Summit is a great time to connect and make new friends.

Everyone is welcome to join our Vineyard Nordic Leaders Summit 2023.

Flemming Mølhede, Vineyard Nordic Director

9 March


Alexander Venter: LGBTQ+ and The Bible: Interpreting the Scriptures (1)

Alexander will explain how the Bible is interpreted in regard to LGBTQ+ practice and the underlying beliefs and ideology:

Both the ‘affirming’ position that supports LGBTQ+ practice and beliefs, and the ‘non-affirming’ position that disagrees with LGBTQ+ practice and beliefs.


Zeke Rink: Developing tomorrow’s leaders

‘Developing tomorrow’s leaders’ – Your greatest accomplishment may not be something you do but someone you raise. The church needs to raise up the emerging generation, young people are more of a gift than we know and more of a blessing than we might truly understand. Come and explore 5 C’s of raising up young people to lead in our churches, in society and culture.

10 March


Norbert Bauer: The Seasons of your Heart – moving from Glory to Glory

As God continues to invite us to come further in and as we continue to respond to the different seasons of our journey, our truest and best self will be reclaimed and restored to its original holy design. We will no longer be defined and held back by false narratives and negative labels. We will move from knowing ourselves by “What we Are” to freely living as “Who we Are” – our God-given identity.


Carsten Lind: Paradox leadership

In this seminar we will explore paradox leadership. Reflecting on questions like: what might happen when we as leaders face a paradox and what can we do to get a good outcome. Paradoxes are the two sides of the same coin – sides that are “contradictory yet interrelated elements that exist simultaneously and persist over time”.

Faith and church life is full of paradoxes such as grace and the law, the now and the not yet, seeking the lost and making disciples, work and rest, and renewal and traditions.

Paradoxes are full of tension and conflicts, and therefore we might want to avoid them. But paradoxes, tension, or conflicts are neither good nor bad but the manner in which they are handled can lead to good or bad outcome. Paradoxes, tension, and conflicts contain potential for development when dealt with in a good manner. Hear how we can prepare ourselves for when we encounter paradoxes as the above.


Alexander Venter: LGBTQ+ and The Church: Pastoral practice (2)

Alexander will discuss the Church’s practical engagement with the LGBTQ+ community. How do we welcome and walk with LGBTQ+ while upholding the Biblical teaching regarding LGBTQ+ practice? Can they become church members? What about baptism, the Lord’s Supper, ministry and leadership participation? Where do we ‘draw the line’ as it were?
