Historical Background

Conference name International Congress on World Evangelization; also referred to as Lausanne Congress, Lausanne '74 or ICOWE
Conference venue Palais de Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland. Lausanne was selected as the Congress site in October 1972. The Congress office was opened in April 1973.
Conference dates July 16-25, 1974
Conference theme "Let the earth hear His voice"
Conference background Plans announced by Billy Graham in August 1972 to hold an international congress on evangelism as a follow-up to the 1966 World Congress on Evangelism held in Berlin
Conference purpose To gather (by invitation only) the international leaders of evangelical Protestant Christians together for strategic planning, inspiration, and fellowship
Attendance figures Approximately 4000 participants, observers, news media, and guests
Conference figures
Honorary chairman Billy Graham
Executive chairman A. Jack Dain
Director Don Hoke, American missionary and educator in Japan
Program Committee chairman Leighton Ford
Program committee associate director Paul Little
Other conference staff see Addendum which follows Provenance section of this guide
Governing body Board of Conveners consisting of 164 Christian leaders who had gathered at Graham's invitation
Executive body Planning committee of thirty-one headed by Sydney Bishop A. Jack Dain to provide guidelines for what the Congress was going to do and whom it was going to invite
Administrative committee An eight member administrative committee was formed to act in emergencies and between committee meetings; subcommittees for finances and film were also formed
Financial support The Congress was financed partially by gifts and partially by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). The BGEA also provided aid by allowing several of its employees to work full- or part-time for the Congress as staff members or consultants.
Post-conference resources The Congress compendium, consisting of both the texts of pre-Congress working papers and plenary session remarks, was published under the title Let the Earth Hear His Voice by World Wide Publications in 1975. Reaching All was a six-cassette series of reports, excerpts and interviews developed for commercial distribution and radio broadcast. An eighteen-cassette series of conference plenary sessions was produced by World Wide Publications for commercial distribution.
Other significant information
One of the major tasks of the staff was preparing lists of whom to invite based on suggestions submitted by members of the convening committee and others.
Paul Little worked with the program committee and its chairman Leighton Ford in planning the events and speaking schedule of the meeting, determining what topics would be addressed and by whom.
Along with the major plenary addresses (including the opening and closing addresses by Graham), there were Bible studies, demonstrations of evangelistic methods, small group discussions, reports on aspects of the theology and strategy of evangelism, reports on the situation of the church in various geographical locations, debates by citizens and workers on the strategies necessary for particular nations, an evangelistic meeting for the general public held in the city's stadium (Laustade '74), and the signing by a large number of the participants of the Lausanne Covenant, a statement intended to define the necessity, responsibilities and goals of spreading the Gospel.
Also important to the Congress's goals were the consultations held in 1973 on how best to continue the Congress's goals after the meeting. From these meetings came the first plans for the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization. The process of selecting members of a continuation committee was begun at the Congress. Eventually, forty-nine people were selected to plan for future consultation and congresses as needed. Rev. Leighton Ford was chosen as chairman of this committee and Rev. Gottfried Osei-Mensah as Executive Secretary.
Following the Congress, the staff closed the Lausanne office. Final tasks included sending out the final news releases, preparing the papers and tapes delivered at the Congress for publication and sale, answering mail, and shipment of most of the office files to the BGEA office in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The office was officially closed at the end of October 1974.

Scope and Content

 

Series II: Audio tapes (for a complete list, see the Location Record below)
Arrangement: Into five subseries:

Date Range: 1974
Notes: The first subseries includes not only the recordings through the plenary podium microphone but also the recordings from the translation channels in German, Indonesian, Japanese, French, Spanish and Chinese. The second subseries is the cassette set produced by World Wide Publications (a BGEA subsidiary) for commercial distribution. The Reaching All series appears to have been intended for both commercial distribution as a cassette series and as radio broadcast. The non-plenary session recordings in subseries D appear to have been the source of excerpts used in the Reaching All series. The final subseries consists of the masters used to produce World Wide Publications casssette series in subseries B.
