The church has a strategic role in whole-person health and healing for all nations. How can we integrate health as well as social concern in our ministry and mission?
The global economy has been hard hit by the pandemic, the effects of which will likely reach every community around the world. How best can Christian businesses and workers play their God-given roles in creating and sharing wealth and resources?
As scores of people globally are restricted in their movements and unable to meet and gather as they usually would, how can the church continue in its mission of evangelism and discipleship and use this time as an opportunity for the gospel?
Those in leadership have not been spared from the emotional and spiritual effects of this pandemic. These resources provide valuable perspective and provoke theological thought on aspects of self-care, anxiety, and the goodness of God in suffering.
The post-COVID-19 world will require us as the church to realign ourselves with the core values of humility, integrity and simplicity, discern the will of Christ for this new era, and partner together in unified mission.
Your partnership is essential to Lausanne’s calling to connect influencers and ideas for global mission.
