In 1980, The Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism (LCWE) sponsored the Consultation on World Evangelisation (COWE) in Pattaya, Thailand. "Reaching Jews" was one of the 17 mini-consultation groups at that event. The enthusiasm of the leaders in the field of Jewish evangelism who attended to expand the network gave rise to the formation of a task force, now called the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE).
LCJE has met for international consultations every 3-4 years and more often on a regional basis. There are chapters in North America, Europe, Israel, South Africa, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. A quarterly bulletin is published to keep its members abreast of what is happening in between consultations.
