Some 5000 key Christian leaders, representing 100 countries of the world, will meet in Pretoria, South Africa from June 30 to July 5, 1997, for a Global Consultation on World Evangelization (GCOWE `97). Affiliates of the AD2000 and Beyond Movement will attend.

The purpose of GCOWE `97 will be to encourage and assess the mobilization and implementation plans of key AD2000 Global Initiatives towards the fulfillment of the goal of "a church for every people and the Gospel for every person by the year 2000," with a special emphasis on Africa's involvement. GCOWE `97 is strategically positioned three and a half years (or 42 months) before the end of the century. This is a critical time to assess what still needs to be done as we embark on our final major drive to complete the task of world evangelization.
