Ajith Fernando is teaching director (and former national director) of Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka—a ministry he led for 35 years. In addition to teaching and preaching, he spends his time mentoring and counseling younger Christian leaders and pastors. Ajith is passionate about discipleship and working among the urban poor. He’s a sought after speaker, frequenting stages at Urbana and Lausanne gatherings, as well as pulpits of churches around the world. As dear friends and respected theologians, Ajith and Chris discuss lessons gleaned from decades of ministry, how the church in Sri Lanka has grown despite a decades-long civil war, and what lessons Christians in the west might learn from their Sri Lankan sisters and brothers.
