In 2016, the Lausanne Movement launched a ten-year strategy of engaging with younger leaders globally called Lausanne Younger Leaders Generation (YLGen). Within YLGen, different initiatives were formed, tested, and adapted. As the strategy is now in its second phase, what has been learned from the first three years of engagement? How do younger leaders need to develop as disciples, followers, and leaders? How can senior leaders encourage, support, and challenge? What are some of the gaps between the generations, and how should Lausanne seek to bridge those gaps on a global scale? This article will seek to answer such questions by drawing from a number of relevant surveys.
