Shorter summit style Congresses were held for leaders in the Middle East. Our Malta Congress started at the same time as the Arab Spring began in Egypt, a huge time of change in the region, with the unrest meaning many delegates could not attend, however there was still a great level of participation from those who could attend and powerful times of intercession for the political situation.

At the April 2010 Congress concepts on global mapping and unengaged unreached people groups opened up whole new areas of understanding. The strategic round table discussions were buzzing with excitement as delegates engaged deeply with the material. Orality and church planting sessions bought more strategic discussions and agreements to work together.
The first night culminated with a message from a “regional father in the faith” encouraging everyone saying, “it is possible to complete the Great Commission”.
More than one person in attendance commented on the volume and quality of the content saying, “It’s been like drinking from a fire hose, it seems like no one can get enough.”
The 2010 Congress was marked by an unflagging excitement from delegates to soak up as much information as possible.
