About the conference


The theme of the 11th LCJE International conference is: ’Making All Things New’. Each day we will look at diffferent aspects of the theme and ask ourselves how does this relate to Jewish evangelism today and to the different ministries we are involved in as members of the Lausanne network for Jewish evangelism. The sub-themes are: Renewed call, new vision, new generation, new partnership, renewed commitment and passion.

All throughout the week we will be studying the book of Colossians together. We will do so in small groups around tables, using the inductive bible study method, with enough time for personal reflection, group interaction and praying for one other.

Each day there will be a plenary session convering current burning issues related to Jewish evangelism and Jewish ministry.

Afternoons will be devoted to workshops and networking and in the evening we will look at the theme for the next day. Two different speakers will present the theme and in our table groups we will interact with the theme and with one-another.

At this conference we want to collaborate together and attendees are not going to be spectators. Rather we will participate and be engaged with one another as we netowrk in the field of Jewish ministry for the sake of the Gospel.

WORKSHOPS


Israelis in Berlin – Reaching out to the Milky Generation


Hosted by Aaron Lewin

We Jews are known as the wandering people and despite having our homeland again, today is no exception. Recently, thousands of Israelis have streamed to Berlin dreaming of a new life. How can we reach these new immigrants in Berlin and how can we reach wandering Israelis worldwide with the Gospel? We offer practical suggestions, discussion and prayer and are excited about your input!

Hope in the Holy Land: Delving Beneath the Surface of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict


Hosted by Justin Kron

Come and hear some of what Justin Kron has learned in the process of producing a documentary film project aimed at bringing greater perspective and sensivity to God’s heart for both Jews and Arabs in the Holy Land. This project was inspired in part by his observations among Evangelicals toward their increased engagement with the Palestinian narrative and their shift away from supporting the Israeli narrative. Our discussion will consider the implications this shift may have on your ministry.

Jewish Worldviews and the Role of Tikkun Olam.


Hosted by Jim Melnick

This workshop will look at the origin and impact of the Jewish concept of ‘tikkun olam’ and show its relevance and application in Jewish evangelism, from its impact on the ultra-Orthodox to the extremely secular.

Shifting Cultural Trends and the Impact on Communicating the Gospel


Hosted by Galen Peterson

With the increasing use of technology, many cultures are shifting from literate to oral orientations. This is not just a matter of how we communicate, but it impacts the way that we think, including an emphasis on shame and honor over guilt and innocence. This session will provide a targeted approach on shame and honor in witnessing to Jewish people.

A History of Jewish Missions in Canada


Hosted by Ben Volman

Why did Canadian Hebrew Christians play such key roles in the birth of modern Messianic Judaism? Current Jewish missions in Canada might easily be seen as extensions of their American or British counterparts, and the stories are closely linked. But major figures in the birth of Messianic Judaism (and the promotion of Hebrew Christian churches)came from Canada and they strongly reflected a colourful, dynamic missions environment.

Social Justice Opportunities ... As An Outlet for Jewish Evangelism


”Social Justice.” Who knew two simple words could become so controversial in the Evangelical world? Are advocates of the concept wanting Christianity to become neo-Marxist or simply an opportunity to live out Micah 6:8? Is ”Social Justice” nothing more than a return to the 1920s Social Gospel Movement of Walter Rauschenbusch or perhaps an avenue to do Jewish Evangelism in the 21st Century? Is this a battle between Snowflakes vs. Bran Flakes? Or just the Gospel?
