Lausanne Young Leaders Consultation

25 Jul

This week, I am participating in a gathering of young leaders in North America hosted by the Lausanne movement. The goal is to bring young leaders together to discuss, pray through, and apply the Cape Town Commitment within the North American context.

From the website:

Lausanne is a global Movement that mobilizes evangelical leaders to collaborate for world evangelization. It grew out of the 1974 International Congress on World Evangelization convened in Lausanne, Switzerland by Rev. Billy Graham and Bishop Jack Dain. The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization (October 2010) in Cape Town, South Africa, brought together 4000 Christian leaders, representing 198 countries. The resulting Cape Town Commitment serves as the blueprint for the Movement’s activities.

Dividing by different topics, we are working in more specific groups as follows:
– Business as Mission/Workplace Ministry
– Developing Christ Centered Leaders
– Discipleship
– Unreached People Groups
– Ministry to the Marginalized and Poor
– Focusing on Cities
– Theological Education
– Truth in Arts and Media
– Unity in the Church
– Evangelism to Muslim People

    So – on which group(s) are you focusing? Looks like a tough choice!

      I was originally signed up for the group on discipleship but was asked to relocate for a variety of reasons to the group on Muslim evangelism. It’s been a great experience so far.

        I’m so glad you relocated!
