I am excited about hosting Ajith Fernando at the upcoming Forum14/Bible Conference at Welch College, March 9-11, 2014:http://www.welch.edu/forum14.
Ajith Fernando, internationally acclaimed author, speaker, and evangelist, is the teaching director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka. Prior to his current position, Mr. Fernando served as the National Director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka for 35 years. A graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary, he is a visiting lecturer and council president at Colombo Theological Seminary as well as visiting scholar at Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto.
He is the author of fifteen books published in twenty languages. His books include titles such as Jesus Driven Ministry (Crossway), Sharing the Truth in Love: How to Relate to People of Other Faiths(Discovery House), and Reclaiming Love: Radical Relationships in a Complex World (Zondervan). His book The Call to Joy and Pain: Embracing Suffering in Your Ministry (Crossway) was awarded the Christianity Today Book of the Year Award for church and pastoral leadership.
Fernando is actively involved in a grassroots ministry to reach the urban poor in his area with the gospel. He and his wife Nelun are active in a Methodist Church near Colombo, Sri Lanka, ministering primarily to younger people who are converts from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam.
I encourage you to come to the Forum14 conference and hear Ajith Fernando, along with Russell Moore, Jeff Manning, Jeff Nichols, Chris Talbot, and David Williford.
