Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the First International Congress on World Evangelization


On this milestone in the life of The Lausanne Movement, we’ve prepared a special collection of materials to provide a unique glimpse into its beginnings as well as highlights from the past 40 years.

How to Pray for Ukraine Today

Winter 2014 has become the most tragic period in Ukraine’s history of national development. For more than three months, there has been a very aggressive confrontation between the people of Ukraine and government special police forces. Demonstration lost its peaceful character after people were killed, and the 19th of February was a horrible day, marked by close to 900 injured people and 77 dead due to gunshot wounds. Prayer is much needed for families of those who lost their loved ones. May the Lord protect their hearts, minds, and souls from hatred and aggressive decisions.

A Mandela Tribute and Perspective from Isaiah

Pietermaritzburg, 1992

As one of the Lausanne Co-Chairs, it is my privilege to greet you all at this Christmas/New Year season and wish upon you all the Lord’s most choicest blessings at this very special time of year when we remember our Saviour’s incarnation and the hope, light and love he brought, and continues to bring, to the world.


Why Christians Should Care: Reflections from Nelson Mandela's Memorial Service

Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

Spontaneous shouts of “Tata Madiba!” in chorus of voice and body spread like waves throughout the stadium long before Nelson Mandela’s memorial service even began.  I turned to the Archbishop of Johannesburg to ask what they were saying.  “They’re chanting his name, ‘Father Madiba,’” he said with a smile.  “They’re chanting his name.”

I want the world to look different in 10 years.

These are the words I used in June at my installation in Bangalore. It’s why I said yes to the incredibly challenging calling to lead The Lausanne Movement. It’s also why I’m writing this.


Traveling to Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service

6:36 p.m. – On a plane from Nagoya to Taiwan, then Hong Kong, then Johannesburg. It was a frantic morning after getting an email from South Africa about the possibility of an invitation to attend Nelson Mandela’s memorial and funeral services. Was a jolting shock to even hear of the possibility. An unbelievable honor. Never for a moment did I imagine that something like this would be possible; hence absolutely no prior preparation had been made on my part!
