2004 Forum Ends
“A New Vision, A New Heart and a Renewed Call” was the theme of the 2004 Forum for World Evangelization that concluded Tuesday night in Thailand.
Proclaiming that the Spirit of Lausanne is alive and well, Rev. Doug Birdsall, International Chair of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization encouraged Forum participants to continue pressing forward toward the vision of “The Whole Church taking the Whole Gospel to the Whole World.” Outgoing Lausanne International Chair, Dr. Paul Cedar, challenged participants to not only personally reflect on Forum activities, but also to take up the banner of world evangelization by encouraging, motivating and mobilizing others for the task.
Tuesday’s final service marked the “passing of the baton” of Lausanne leadership from Dr. Cedar to Rev. Birdsall and from Dr. David Claydon, outgoing International Director to new International Director Dr. Ted Yamamori.
Final reports and reflections from the Forum will be available soon on the Lausanne web site.
