Imagine being part of a conversation with 10,000 Evangelical leaders
thinking together about the crucial issues for mission in Europe today


Lausanne Europe, as part of the Conversation and Gathering initiative happening in October is launching a two-fold conversation. A local conversation happening through Impact Groups of ideally 10-12 people and online reflections.


These are key people from within your network and who might benefit from being included in the thinking, reflecting and connecting for mission. We recommend that a group meets once a month for 1-2 hours.


As you meet in your Impact Groups, you will formulate thoughts and conclusions that we would love for you to share with other Impact Groups. Each month there will be a comment section where you will be able to share your reflections.
