The 2016 Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering (YLG2016) will be held on 3-10 August 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Occurring once a generation, this is the third such gathering that the Lausanne Movement has convened. Previous gatherings held were in Singapore in 1987 and Malaysia in 2006 which mobilized and connected emerging evangelical influencers for global mission. They also led to many lifelong friendships and ministry partnerships.
1,000 younger leaders, over 160 countries
YLG2016 is a gathering of 1,000 younger leaders from over 160 countries who will connect, pray, and discern together God’s leading of their generation for his global mission.
We received thousands of nominations for this gathering and participants have been invited through an extensive, prayerful, regionally based selection process.
During the gathering, participants will be connecting in issue-based workshops and regional groups, strategic brainstorming ‘labs’, and with mentors—senior leaders in global mission today. They will also be invited to participate in an initiative called the Younger Leaders Generation (YLGen).
The Lausanne Movement is eager to connect evangelical influencers across all generations to work together towards the vision of the gospel for every person, an evangelical church for every people, Christ-like leaders for every church, and kingdom impact in every sphere of society.
