Younger Leaders Gathering 2006

24 - 30 Sep 2006 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
“Live and Lead Like Jesus” was the theme of the September 2006 Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering (YLG-06) in Malaysia. YLG-06, which drew 550 young leaders from over 100 countries, was the second major meeting of young Christian leaders called by the Lausanne Movement to focus specifically on global evangelization. The 1987 Conference of Young Leaders was held in Singapore.

Throughout the week-long YLG-06, leaders learned more about opportunities and barriers to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and were urged to make the most of God’s calling on their life. Each day, YLG-06 leaders participated in small group discussions with mentors, workshops and regional meetings and heard challenges from leaders to live a life of biblical holiness and humility in service to God and man. Speakers included Peter Kuzmic (Croatia), Ajith Fernando (Sri Lanka), Mutua Mahiaini (Kenya), Becky Pippert (USA), Ramez Atallah (Egypt), Doug Birdsall (USA) and others.

The daily reports below offer insight into the YLG-06 gathering and give an overview of many of the main sessions attended by YLG-06 participants.
