Step 1


Welcome to Your Journey to the Fourth Lausanne Congress

The first step on our Journey to the Fourth Lausanne Congress will introduce you to the Lausanne Movement.

Lausanne’s Heart and History

Whether you are new to the Movement or have been part of it for some time, consider this your essential step to connecting with the heart and the history of the Lausanne Movement. These resources are a great place to start for this step in the journey.

Collaborative Action

Every afternoon of the congress, you as a congress participant will be invited to engage in Collaborate sessions. These sessions are designed to help you:

  • Process what is currently happening in the world
  • Discern what should be happening
  • Prayerfully seek to close these ‘Great Commission gaps’
  • Commit to a process of collaborative action through organic teams that will be launched beyond the congress.

Here are some resources to help you better prepare you for the Collaborate sessions.

Interact & Engage

Monthly Prayer Focus: Your Home Country

Join us in praying for your home country using this daily prayer guide. The guide uses Lausanne’s fourfold vision for the church as a framework to invite guided prayer for specific areas of the world, church, and broader society.

Book: The Lausanne Legacy

Discover Lausanne’s Landmarks in Global Mission

We recommend a keynote book which collects the three major documents of the Lausanne Movement into one volume. It includes The Lausanne Covenant, The Manila Manifesto, and The Cape Town Commitment together with the closing addresses of each global congress.
