The Lausanne discussion which is traveling to 12 cities made its stop in the city of Detroit on September 14, 2010 at the home church of Global Projects' founder and president, Dr. Sabrina Black. Not only as it well received and attended the attendees were blown away by the panelist and the discussion on how we can evangelize as well as raise the bar in the christian community to build bridges, bring hope and healing between the city and suburbs.
The host of this historic happening was Evangel Ministries located in Detroit. Pastor Christopher Brooks was the moderator and the church family was on point in all aspects to make the night a complete success. Because of the pastors' commitment to mission and spreading the gospel this was a great fit for the ministry. Kudos to the staff for seamlessly making the discussion flow so well.
Detroit who is known for music and cars will now be listed among the cities raising awareness about the Lausanne movement and reaching to the neighbors across Eight Mile to bring the Body of Christ in unity and harmony to fulfill the Great Commission of being disciples for Christ.
Panelist included Doug Birdsall Executive Chairman, Lausanne, Walter McCry, President National Black Evangelical Association, Rich Van Pelt, National Director of Ministry Relationships-Compassion Internationa, Donovan Case, President International Christian Ministries, Bob Shirock, Pastor Oakpointe Church along with Sabrina Black, Founder and President of Global Projects for Hope, Help and Healing. They were excellent answering questions from the audience and sharing how we as the Body of Christ must respond to global poverty, injustice, other faiths, HIV/Aids, partnerships, forming leaders and urban mission and unreached people groups. This is just a glimpse into what the 5500 delegates will engage in dialogue in South Africa. North American is represented by 400 delegates and among that 400 only 40 are African Americans. This monumental event will help to share the thinking of Christian leaders how to mobilize the global church to be more effective to respond to the challenges.
It is exciting to have Global Projectssitting at the table on the third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization. This is a giant step into the next decade of how we will respond to the mission work we have been called to do. It will shape how we collaborate, partner and serve the hurting people globally.
We will continue to prepare men and women for ministry, we will continue to heed the cry of our fellowman who is devastated by traumatic happenings and we will do it with purpose, passion and compassion being the hands and feet of the Lord. Reminding them that God does see and cared enough to send us to share His love.
So pray for the delegates who represent pastors, teachers, ministry professionals, and visionaries. Especially lift up our founder, Dr. Sabrina Black and keep her in your prayers. She will serve Global Projects, the city of Detroit and North America well. When she returns we will share what she learned with you in one of our blogs.
God Bless you until next time.
