Lausanne Global Classroom

The Lausanne Movement is pleased to present Global Classroom. Global Classroom is a new tool designed to connect emerging evangelical leaders to key issues and ideas in global mission today. As these leaders grow into national, regional, and global influence, our hope is that Global Classroom will be helpful in equipping them for mission in their generation.

As this is a new initiative of the Lausanne Movement, we invite your feedback through this form. It will only take a couple minutes, but it will help us produce even better content to bless the global church.
