LeadNow e.V.

Strengthening the church through investing in young leaders

Our dream

We believe that God has called this young generation of Europeans to lead now and lead alongside senior leaders intergenerationally. We do this by encouraging, equipping and connecting young leaders to develop themselves and develop others around them. Always with the goal of together building the Kingdom of God.

Our favourite people

We focus primarily on young people
and young leaders and whoever invests into them.

Our core passion is Europe
but we also connect internationally.

The Dream Team

We come from various cultures and backgrounds but are united in loving God and loving young people. The wonderful challenge is celebrating and working together for the same cause. We are a community of friends and in the spirit of friendship and trust we extend our friendship and trust.

Topics we are passionate about:


How to lead while faced with a crisis

The art of leading yourself

Core elements of an event

Measuring event impact

Developing your God-given potential

Mentoring the next generation

Some of our offers

She leads

Leadership Training

Currently we are engaged with young leaders and especially with youth leaders in Bulgaria, Kosovo and Turkey, always in cooperation with the local church and networks.

We are developing a leadership training programme to be launched in nations who have very little leadership development.

Leadership Training for Women

For young female leaders especially we offer retreats in cooperation with others and in 2021 start with She Leads, a training programme over 10 months for German leaders.


Another project for 2021 is building a Speaker’s platform for female speakers in the German-speaking world.


Event Coordination

Various on the team are highly skilled in event coordination and we not only run our own programmes but also lend our hearts and hands to conferences like Revive, Christival, Lausanne younger leaders etc.

We also mentor young event organisers and are interested in doing event audits researching on impact.


LeadNow also organises its own outreaches. For 2022, we plan to hire two caravans and travel across Europe while visiting young leaders.
