A Note from the Regional Director

Churches and Christians in North America are facing a number of challenges, both externally and internally. While our culture continues to morph into something many of us are quite unfamiliar with, and that, frankly, kind of scares us, we must not despair! Jesus is still at work, and calls us to join Him. A Lifeway Research project showed that 79% of unchurched people people would engage in a faith conversation if asked. That’s the good news. Many around us are open to matters of faith! Here’s the bad news: that same research showed that only 39% of Christians have shared their faith in the past six months. That’s a big gap. We need to work together around a common passion to show & share the love of Jesus with all those around us. I invite you to look around the Lausanne North America website and see where you can get connected. Let’s work together to see our region of the world transformed by the gospel!
