Keynote Speaker was Christopher J.H. Wright
"Praise is the proper and primary stance...of the created order to its Creator…Mission exists because praise does. The praise of the church is what energizes it for mission." (Christopher Wright)
The Rev. Dr. Christopher J. H. Wright, born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was nurtured as an Irish Presbyterian, the son of missionaries returned from Brazil. Chris earned his doctorate in Cambridge, England, in the field of Old Testament economic ethics and was ordained in the Anglican Church of England in 1977, serving as an assistant pastor in the Parish Church of St. Peter & St. Paul, Tonbridge, Kent, England. In 1983 he moved to India with his wife, Liz, and four children to teach a variety of Old Testament courses at Union Biblical Seminary in Pune for five years. In 1988 he returned to the U.K. as academic dean at All Nations Christian College, an international training center for cross-cultural mission. In September 2001 Chris was appointed to his present role as the international director of the Langham Partnership International (www.langhampartnership.org), founded by the late John Stott. Chris was Chair of the Lausanne Theology Working Group from 2005 – 2011, and Chair of the Statement Working Group at the Third Lausanne Congress, 2010, which produced The Cape Town Commitment. Two of Dr. Wright's recent works are The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative (IVP Academic, 2006) and The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church's Mission (Zondervan, 2010)
