The gathering, which concludes on September 19, is being hosted by His Beatitude, Archbishop Anastasios, Primate of the Albanian Orthodox Church.  Representatives of Orthodox and Evangelical churches from around the world are in attendance.

Father Eric, a Doctor of Ministry candidate at the University of Toronto, Trinity College and the Toronto School of Theology, spoke on “Koinonic Evangelism: The Parish as the Evangelist” as part of a panel on spiritual transformation through mission.  His presentation was based on his doctoral dissertation on evangelism in the community.

“The Lausanne Orthodox Initiative gathers representatives of the Orthodox Christian and Evangelical traditions to undertake dialogue on issues of mission and evangelism,” said Father Eric.  “It builds on the work of the Lausanne Movement which seeks better understanding in evangelistic efforts among various traditions.”
