Lausanne Global Classroom (Beta)
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, the first Global Classroom episode is a beta version, and we invite your feedback in email. The next few Global Classroom episodes are in production and will generally follow the same format with further improvements based on feedback.
Director, Lausanne Global Classroom
How is Global Classroom built?
Global Classroom will consist of episodes, with each episode dealing with one current missiological issue defined in The Cape Town Commitment. Our first beta episode is available and the second will be published in early 2017.
Each Classroom episode is based on a series of short video documentaries (totaling about 45 minutes), and is supplemented by discussion guides, activities and assignments, and further reading. It is a free resources that can be easily adaptable for your setting.
How to use Global Classroom?
The videos may be watched in one sitting or divided into a few sessions, and the supplementary resources may also be used in whole or in parts to fit your context. We recommend it for
Academic and higher education settings, such as a seminary or university class
Ministry staff meeting or a mission-minded small group
Individuals seeking missiological content that is current and globally representative

Diaspora is a global phenomenon that has marked the 21st century. Today, more than ever before, people are on the move, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, and for various reasons—terrorism, economic collapse or opportunity, famine, human trafficking, education, to mention a few. There is a tremendous opportunity for ministry to, through, and beyond diaspora peoples.
