MAY 2016 POSTINGS
Scott Lambert of El Segundo, CA, has been appointed executive director of Let’s Start Talking Ministry. Lambert served for more than 20 years as campus minister at Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA, and for the last 11 years as network director for the Kairos Church Planting organization. Mark and Sherrylee Woodward, founders of the ministry and co-executive directors for more than 35 years, are continuing with the ministry in supportive roles and as members of the board of directors. The transition will be celebrated at a dinner on Sept. 24. LST began in 1981 as a short-term summer mission opportunity for college students who offered English practice using Bible texts to start conversations about Jesus. The ministry expanded to offer the same opportunity to both adult church members and high school students. Today, LST trains and sends hundreds of workers each year and has sent mission volunteers into 65 countries. LST also sponsors the FriendSpeak Ministry, which has trained hundreds of churches in the United States with a strategy for reaching non-English speaking neighbors in their communities or international students at local universities.
