From October 8-12, 2023, the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) hosted the Future of the Gospel Forum in Istanbul, Turkey, in collaboration with the Global Strategy Forum (GSF) bringing together some 250 participants from 60 countries. World Evangelical Center’s Chief Communications Officer Rev. Timothy Goropevsek was among the participants together with GSF co-founders and Olivet University professors Dr. William and Dr. Mark Wagner.
The GSF was birthed out of the Olivet Institute for Strategic Studies led by Dr. William Wagner and his son Dr. Mark Wagner who remain involved in the leadership. It seeks to bring together thinkers in each sphere of society, such as family, arts, government, sports, media, etc. and develop strategies for gospel influence.
During the GSF track that took place in the afternoons, Rev. Goropevsek who also serves as Executive Editor of the newly launched WEC-based Christian Daily International and has headed up the media sphere of the GSF, presented the vision of CDI as well as the continued efforts to bring greater unity and strength to Christian news media around the world.
