In this episode of the Lausanne Movement Podcast, we talk to Jurie Kriel and Jiyoung Yoo about collaborative action teams, a new initiative within the Lausanne Movement that aims to mobilise groups of believers to take action in closing gaps and seizing opportunities in our obedience to Jesus’ Great Commission.
Jurie and Jiyoung, who are both key leaders in the Collaborative Action Leadership Forum, share their insights on what collaborative action teams are, why they are important, and how to get involved. They also discuss the challenges and opportunities of collaborative action, and offer practical advice for leaders.
This episode is a must-listen for anyone who is passionate about accelerating global mission and seeing the world transformed by the gospel.
