Christian Leaders Meet Jan. 20-23 to Discuss Plans for Evangelism

Call2All ( has announced that it will accept early registration rates through Dec. 15 for its fourth International Strategy Congress, the 3 ½ day North American Congress scheduled for Jan. 20-23 in Dayton, Ohio, to make these sessions as available to as many Christian leaders as possible.

Individuals may currently register for $99, and couples for $159, which includes all main sessions, round-table discussions, workshops and the Global Pastors Wives’ Network track. Workshop sessions and speakers include “21st Century Evangelism” by Mark Anderson, president of Call2All/Global Pastors Network; “”First Steps in Reaching your ‘Unengaged, Unreached People Group,’” by Paul Eshelman, vice president for coverage of Campus Crusade for Christ; “Making Truth Stick,” by Avery Willis, director of the International Orality Network; and “The Book that Transforms Nations: The Power of the Bible to Transform a Nation,” by Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth with a Mission.

The Global Pastors Wives’ track includes topics on balancing ministry and family, led by speakers Devi Titus, president of the Global Pastors Wives’ Network; Becky Hunter, outgoing president of the Global Pastors Wives’ Network; and Kay Arthur, founder of Precept Ministries International.

“The main purpose of these congresses is to bring Christians together to strategize for accomplishing the Great Commission (Jesus’ command to his followers in Matthew 28: 18-20 to make disciples of all nations),” said Mark Anderson, international director of Call2All and president of Global Pastors Network. “Working together, I believe that for the first time we actually have the potential to complete the Great Commission in our lifetime.”

Spurred by the legacy and initiative of the late Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, Call2All works with the Global Pastors Network to gather church leaders, missions agencies, marketplace executives and educators to network and strategize in key areas to fulfill this purpose.

“We find ourselves in the most extraordinary time since the first century – it is a new day in world missions,” Anderson said.

Early registration, which previously available until Dec. 1, has been extended to Dec. 15, and costs $99 per delegate or $159 per couple. For more information or to register, visit
