HM Switzerland 2022...
It was very encouraging to see the re-emergence of History Makers training in Switzerland during 2022. Meeting over two residential weekends, 26 young leaders explored the 8 biblical core values of Gospel-centred leadership. The presence of the Lord was tangible at both weekends, with the final Saturday evening being “a very intense and unforgettable time.”
History Makers Champion Rebekka Wehrli writes;
“We worshipped and had the holy communion, and then just took time to listen to the Lord, to pray and serve each other, and the Holy Spirit was mightily at work: Some participants were able to hear God speaking to them about their visions, others were able to forgive family members, others discovered gifts like speaking in tongues, others were shown a person that could be their mentor and much more. It was more than what we could have ever produced by ourselves and we thank the Lord for his faithfulness. Two young participants even decided to be baptised during the weekend and so we had the privilege to baptise them in a nearby lake. That was amazing.”
“I want to live servant leadership like Jesus did.” (participant, 2022)
“This conference left me with a big hunger and thirst for God and for intimate time with him.” (participant, 2022)
HM Switzerland 2016...
Following a great start to HM in Switzerland in the summer of 2015, it was brilliant to see the second HM come to fruition this August. Set just outside Zurich, the location was perfect for a retreat from the 'everyday', and the testimonies arising from the week gave so much encouragement as these young leaders press ahead in Jesus' Name. We are believing for similar multiplication as was seen after the gathering in the summer of 2015. Just a few months later, over 40 young leaders came together for a HM weekend just before Christmas. Great to see young leaders with fire in their hearts!
“I did History Makers last year and just visited for one evening this time. I realized how much God has helped me to apply the topic of Mentorship in my life and how many people I was privileged to teach about the same within the past year. Through that, my church is no longer the same." (HM, 2016)
“I was so empty when I got here, but now I feel refilled with joy and love; it’s actually overflowing!” (HM, 2016)

HM Switzerland 2015...
The first History Makers in the German speaking world was hosted by the team in Switzerland in the balmy summer sunshine near Zurich. With representation also from Germany and Austria, Swiss young leaders gathered for this momentous occasion! It had taken a couple of years to get to this point, but it was certainly worth it. We had a fantastic week with a tangible sense of God's presence, as together we determined to make a difference in this, our generation. Already plans are afoot to multiply the training for further gospel impact.
"Being at History Makers is like being a sponge under a waterfall" (Swiss young leader, HM 2015)
