Bloggers and Twits at Lausanne


We had a meet up and photo shoot this morning for the blogging team and those twittering. Lots of good bloggers here but the best blogger in the bunch, and the one most consistently on the ball despite all our technical challenges and internet scarcity, was Chris Kidd. Check it out.

And special thanks to Dr Dion Forster for aggregating everyone and leading the social media team. He said some really nice and almost believable things about my blog yesterday at a session on technology and mission. And even though I protested that such claims were overly generous, I was given all kinds of business cards and invitations and even Jerry White suggested the possibility of partnering in some way with Lausanne as it continues its ministry after the Congress. Cool. Thanks Dion.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for loaning us your wonderful mind, your great wit, and your super readers! Your blog has accounted for a large percentage of the ‘link through’ traffic that we’ve received on the various Lausanne sites! Thanks Andrew!
    Even though the kiwis may never beat the South Africans at Rugby, I am pleased to concede that you’re the BEST blogger in the world!
    Let’s keep the conversation going! The whole Gospel, to the whole world, through the whole Church (even the online churchy guys like us 😉

    thanks for pulling us together and trusting us to blog unfiltered and uncensored.
