John Stott 100 Webinar

April 28, 2021

2021 marks 100 years since the birth of John Stott (1921-2011) – respected preacher, best-selling author, servant of the global church, and the founder of Langham Partnership. It was Stott’s God-given vision that every pastor in every church be equipped to preach the Bible. For more than 50 years, Langham has been working in pursuit of this vision.

This special webinar celebrates Stott’s life and legacy by doing what John Stott did: drawing near to pastors and leaders on the frontlines of the global church. Learn how God grew John Stott’s passion to raise the standard of biblical teaching, why TIME magazine called him one of the world’s most influential people, and why to those he befriended he was known simply as “Uncle John.”

The hour-long webinar features conversations with three global Christian leaders whose lives and ministries were shaped by John Stott, and who are continuing his legacy today by impacting their nations for Christ:

  • Riad Kassis (Director, Langham Scholars) in conversation with Dr. Ashish Chrispal (India), on how Stott inspired him to pursue his PhD, allowing him to multiply his personal ministry throughout his life.
  • Pieter Kwant (Director, Langham Literature) in conversation with Taras Dyatlik (Ukraine), who shares about the impact of John Stott’s vision for indigenous literature, and how that inspired the Slavic Bible Commentary – a groundbreaking project that has unified the church, catapulted partnerships, and inspired additional commentaries throughout the Slavic-speaking world.
  • Paul Windsor (Director, Langham Preaching) in conversation with Dr. Dwi Handayani (Indonesia), who discusses the continuing work of John Stott’s ministry through the Langham Partnership and its three programs (Scholars, Literature, and Preaching).

Chris Wright, Langham’s Global Ambassador and Ministry Director, also brings his own personal reflection on Stott’s legacy.

Hosted by Ben Homan (Langham USA President) and Eidi Cruz-Valdiveso Smith (Langham USA board member)
