The Lausanne East and Central Africa regional Conference on Creation Care and the Gospel, will be held in Kenya from 17th - 21st May 2015 at the Brackenhurst Conference Centre and Hotel in Tigoni near Limuru town. The goal of this event is to help stimulate a vision within Church and mission leaders about the importance of creation-care, and how a biblically-based approach to Africa’s environmental problems can play a very important role in discipleship, holistic ministry, and the advancement of the gospel. It is our prayer that those invited from all over East and Central Africa will be effective in building a stronger creation-care movement that is God-centred in the entire region.
This meeting is one in a series of regional conferences held around the globe. The first one for the South East Asian region was help in Philippines in March 2014 and was highly successful, drawing representation from the different countries. A concerted effort to generate a movement of creation care champions, completely informed by a biblical worldview of creation care and responding to context-specific needs within the over-arching theme emerged and is working with the communities and churches.
As part of this process, two other Conferences are planned in Africa- Western Africa (to be conducted in both French and English) and Southern Africa (in English).
Care of Creation Kenya in conjunction with other local institutions including CMS-Africa, Rural Extension with Africa’s Poor (REAP), Membley Baptist Church, ARocha Kenya, Centre for Environmental Stewardship (CES), Eden Camps & Clubs, Abundant Life Trust, and SMEJAK Nutrition Trees Promotion are all working together in contacting and bringing together Christian leaders of influence from 10-12 countries in East and Central Africa. These countries include Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Sudan, Somalia, DRC Congo, Eritrea, Madagascar, and Malawi.
