Eventbrite - 2018 Compass Europe Conference

Jesus said to His disciples,  “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

Financial freedom comes from learning what the Bible has to say about handling money and possessions. The goal of this conference is to help disciples of Jesus to help others discover what the Bible has to say and then to apply this so that they can experience true financial freedom.

True financial freedom means to be free from worries, anxiety and fear. To be free from the power of money. It is not a destination to reach but a path to be taken. True financial freedom means also being free to be share and to use finances His way.

This conference will focus on how to help people to find this freedom through Biblical advice and counselling.

Conference plenary speakers confirmed.

Dr. Sunil Raheja, psychiatrist, London.

Dr. Raheja will speak on the ‘psychology of money’ and how to help people make better choices.
