Connecting with Leaders across Europe

Connections bring people together and enable us to do more than we can do on our own.

Jim Memory fondly recalls: "That was true when Christine and I were ECM missionaries in Spain, planting a church in a small town in Andalucia. And it is no less true today in my new responsibility, seconded from ECM to be the Co-Regional Director for the Lausanne Movement in Europe.

"For nearly 50 years the Lausanne Movement has been connecting leaders in pursuit of one goal: making Christ known in every tongue, tribe and nation. Starting in 1974 with Billy Graham and John Stott, first in Lausanne, Switzerland, then around the world in the following decades, Lausanne is now planning its fourth global congress in Seoul, South Korea, next year.

"Yet before that, Christine and I are helping to organise a Lausanne Europe Regional Gathering which will bring together 160 leaders in teams of four from every nation with more than 100,000 people. We will be gathering in Budapest from 2nd to 5th November 2023 to connect with God, consider together the challenges and opportunities for the gospel in each of our European countries, and make our European contribution to the global conversation leading up to the Seoul 2024 Congress." 

Here is a video presenting "highlights" from the Lausanne Europe Regional Gathering during last November.
