John Stott became one of the leading figures of the global evangelical movement. This chapter explains his growing prominence. It looks at his leadership in the evangelical Lausanne movement, which aimed to bring together evangelicals to further the spread of the gospel worldwide and served as an evangelical counterpart to the World Council of Churches. The obstacles to evangelical unity are discussed. The chapter also examines the foundations Stott set up to support leaders in churches in the non-Western world.
