Over two billion Christians in the world today are represented by three world church bodies. The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is one of those, serving and representing more than 600 million evangelicals. Launched in 1846 to unite evangelicals worldwide, the WEA continues to be a dynamic movement with 7 regional and 129 national Evangelical Alliances, and over 150 member organizations. WEA’s mission is to speak as a trusted voice, to equip members and leaders for global impact and to connect its members and others for common action in the furtherance of God’s reign.

WEA Global Advocacy Department

Since its formation in 1846, the WEA has been concerned about human rights in general and religious freedom in particular. Over the past years, WEA’s engagement at the United Nations in Bonn, Geneva and New York has gained momentum leading to the creation of the Global Advocacy Department to unite and coordinate these efforts.
