Cape Town 2010
The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization: God in Christ, Reconciling the World to Himself
Cape Town, South Africa
October 16-25, 2010
At the urging of evangelical leaders worldwide, the Lausanne Movement, with the participation of the World Evangelical Alliance, will host the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town, South Africa. Cape Town 2010 will provide a global forum – before, during and after the Congress – in which leaders from around the world will explore issues facing the Church and God’s world. Then together, leaders will prayerfully seek God’s guidance in responding so that God’s name may be honored and many more men, women and young people will be able to hear and respond to the message of Christ presented in a relevant and culturally appropriate manner. It is anticipated that over 4,000 leaders from 200 countries will attend Cape Town 2010. The Participant Selection Team, made up of leaders worldwide, has established specific criteria to ensure that the Congress will include men and women from a broad spectrum of nationalities, ethnicities, ages, occupations and denominational affiliations. BU doctoral student Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Christian Reformed missionary in Costa Rica, is one of the six Bible study leaders at the conference.
