Denver, Colo., November 1 -- More than 300 people gathered in Denver, Colo., for “Denver 2012: Make Love Your Aim.” The event opened Monday night with a prayer gathering focused around the “Cape Town Confession” - part of the Cape Town Commitment , which resulted from The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2010.
“The Cape Town Commitment begins with ten special statements calling us to the life of love,” said Paul Cedar, chairman of the Mission America Coalition, which hosted the event. Cedar describes the Lausanne document, “as a call for the Church to believe in evangelism, to discuss evangelism, and to do evangelism. To give high priority to sharing Jesus Christ throughout the nation.”
Several pre-meetings to the conference included the City Impact Roundtable and a gathering for next generation leaders developing a Campus Transformation Network.
