Board Members

Who provides leadership for the Lausanne-Orthodox Initiative?

LOI is led by a Board which includes Orthodox and Evangelical members, under the guidance of two co-chairs, one from each tradition. The LOI facilitator co-ordinates and administers the work of LOI and is the only paid (part-time) staff member. In addition, a number of advisors offer input from their particular areas of expertise.
