Leo & Susanna Bigger
Loyalty and consistency as foundation for the movement
Your leadership was and has been of immeasurable value for the development of ICF. You have always stayed positive despite criticism and difficulties – and you are still here! Thank you!
Whoever spends time with you must always be prepared for an adventure!
You are adventurous, wild and bubbling with ideas. Just like champagne!
Big, bigger, the biggest
The size of a 5 liter Champagne bottle does not only remind me of your name: Bigger.
But also for always having the courage and faith to go down new and bigger paths, so that people can find their way back to God.
Giving the content on to others
“Church is there for the people; not the people are there for the church.” Leo Bigger
This is your statement and nobody lives this as consequently as you and your whole family.
You are never too good to give your best for others.
The natural and open way you share your lives with people makes both of you very authentic and approachable leaders! For many people you have become great role models.
You are a unique, wonderful woman! Your creativity appears to be never-ending.
You are always like a wonderfully smelling bouquet!
Women as equals side by side with men
Each of these flowers represents the countless women who have blossomed through your ministry and your role model in ICF. What a joy it is to be in a church and a movement where women can stand side by side with men as equals and through this add to the diversity of the church.
You represent the loving and caring heart of ICF. Thank you, Susanne!
Dear Susanne and Leo. With you two the ICF Movement is looking forward to the next 15 years ICF with you.
Thank you for everything!
