Ravi Zacharias International Ministries South Africa, held their Global Evangelists’ Forum Southern Africa at Hatfield Christian Church, Pretoria in February, with approximately 300 delegates – pastors and a variety of ministry leaders from several sub Saharan African countries – in attendance.
The forum’s vision is to bring key men and women together from across Southern Africa for training, discussion, envisioning, and sharing what God is doing across the region. Faculty member Ross Anderson was invited to present a paper on the theology and praxis of evangelism for the Southern African context. His talk at the forum, titled The Great Reversal – power through weakness, examined lessons from 1 Corinthians 1:17-2:5 for Christian evangelism in Southern Africa.
Ross says: “It was an important gathering for at least two reasons: an opportunity to model careful biblical exegesis and the value of apologetics. I personally beneﬁted from the fellowship and networking opportunities for GWC and was greatly moved by the testimonies of two delegates from Zimbabwe. Their faith in Christ and in the sovereign providence of God in the face of extreme diﬃculty is breath-taking”.
