Our Speaker

This year we are thrilled to have Pete Dray as our speaker. Pete works with UCCF as head of Creative Evangelism. Pete is well known in the NW, speaking at CU missions and house parties. Indeed, the NW is a firm favourite of Pete’s where he started at in UCCF as CU Staff worker in Lancaster, Preston and the North! Pete will bring great clarity and warm enthusiasm for CU mission teams on campus, with bible readings on CU leadership.

Who’s it for?

Exec Committee

Are you on the CU Executive Committee? There are a number of training sessions specifically to train and envision you as an exec, to work together as a team.  These will include specific skills training designed to make every member of your team more effective in motivating your CUs for mission, from within their role. So whatever your leadership role on or off exec, we will help you get off to the best start, as you begin to think how you can serve and lead your CU.

Small Group Leaders

The UCCF team will put on a specialist CU Small Group Leaders’ training seminar for those involved with leading small, hall, cell or college groups. You will be trained in how to lead your group humbly, faithfully and with a missional focus.

Other Leadership Roles

If you are working with international students, part of the mission or events week planning team, or are involved with any other type of CU leadership role, Forum NW will give you the opportunity to be inspired, encouraged and equipped for your role.

Small CUs

If you are part of a small CU, you are likely to be helping lead it even if you’re not officially a leader. Bring along the group from your CU and we will help you think through how to apply a cutting edge small CU mission strategy.
