OUR HISTORY

OUR FOUNDERS KNEW WE WOULD SHARE JESUS BEST BY WORKING TOGETHER. THE SAME IS TRUE TODAY.

OUR HISTORY

Our founders knew we would share Jesus best by working together. The same is true today.

Over our 25 year history, we have changed names, logos, and CEOs, but our focus has remained the same; share Jesus with America.

1974

One year following the first International Congress For World Evangelization in Switzerland in 1974, The U.S. Lausanne Committee was formed as a statement by American leaders of their desire for evangelization of America.

1993

The U.S Lausanne Committee launch the Mission America Coalition. Our founding chairs—Dr. Billy Grahm, Dr. Bill Bright (founder of Campus Crusade for Christ), and Dr. John Perkins (founder of the Christian Community Development Association)—tasked Dr. Paul Cedar, a national voice in evangelism, as CEO.

2017

Dr. Paul Cedar passes the baton to Nick Hall, who was appointed by his peers on the board of Mission America Coalition as the next President and CEO. As a leading next-generation voice in the cause of evangelism, Nick is strategically positioned to bring multiple generations and spheres of the Church together on a shared mission.

Rooted in our rich legacy of partnership and in response to today’s cultural climate, we step forward as the Table Coalition, again uniting around the timeless mission of sharing the good news of Jesus.

The Table Coalition is the United States’ committee of the global Lausanne Movement.
