Young Leaders gather in Indonesia

This week nearly 1,000 young Christian leaders from 140 countries around the world are gathering in Indonesia for the Lausanne Young Leaders Gathering. A few days before the gathering Michael Oh, Lausanne's International Director, wrote, "I’m convinced of God’s gracious and powerful work—beyond what we have dreamt—taking place in this generation. What makes me say that? In this year of preparation leading up to YLG, I have seen young influencers listening and learning from previous generations, and seeking to be mentored. At the same time, they have a strong desire to actively participate, to take what they have learned and received, and turn everything into practice. They are responding to God with the same attitude the people of Israel had when they told Joshua: ‘All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go’ (Joshua 1:16). They are moving into new areas of ideas, issues, and collaboration—wherever the Lord is calling them."
