What We Do

The WEA has six programmatic departments - Alliance Development, Church in Community, Missions & Evangelism, Public Engagement, Relief & Development and Global Theology. Each department consists of networks related to the area, working together to maximize their impact on the global and local communities.

Alliance Engagement
