The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization: Cape Town 2010


17 October 2010 – 24 October 201


Few if any events have had more impact on World Evangelisation and the Church´s understanding of Mission, in the last few decades, than the Lausanne Congress on World Evangelisation convened in Switzerland in 1974. After a compelling second Congress in Manila a third gathering of several thousand participants from churches, theological training institutions and mission organisations from around the globe will meet in Cape Town in October 2010 under the name Cape Town 2010: The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelisation.


The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization (Lausanne III) will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, 16-25 October 2010.  The Congress, held in collaboration with the World Evangelical Alliance, will bring together 4,000 leaders from more than 200 countries to confront the critical issues of our time – other world faiths, poverty, HIV/AIDS, persecution, among others – as they relate to the future of the Church and world evangelization.


Cape Town 2010 (CT2010) is not just a one-time meeting, but God willing, will be a catalytic event in the life of the church – drawing leaders together in purposeful prayer, humble repentance, strategic dialogue and decisive action.  Together we will seek the Lord as we examine the world and our culture to discern where the church should invest its efforts and energies to most effectively respond to Christ’s call to take the gospel into all the world and make disciples of all nations . . . lives changed for all eternity, broken families mended, physical and emotional hurts healed, communities transformed.
