The Lausanne gathering in Cape Town (in 2010) prompted a new round on conversation regarding the ministry to the world. If you’re not familiar with the Lausanne movement, you may want to review the covenant that has been used by so many ministries around the world.
Thanks to global youth ministry leader, Dennis Poulette, I ran across this video on his website. And, remember, the world of global youth ministry is very diverse, so these videos are meant to help expose people to the broad challenges that exist. Perhaps it’s the educator in me coming out, but I think learning (reading, viewing) widely is a helpful practice.
