Public Engagement

The Public Engagement Department seeks to engage with governments, intergovernmental and non-profit organizations and various other stakeholders to address and advocate for issues of public concern and for the common good.

Creation Care

The Creation Care Task Force (CCTF) is a service arm of the WEA assisting evangelical Christians to care for creation—a wondrous, intricate, productive, and loving gift from the hand of God. Christian creation care is focused on justly using and enjoying creation while ensuring the integrity of ecosystems are maintained, and when necessary restoring damaged ecosystems.

Human Trafficking Task Force

WEA’s Human Trafficking Task Force was established with a vision for engaging and equipping the local church to respond to victims and issues of human trafficking. The UN estimates that there are 2.5 million people enslaved in some form of forced labor. Virtually every country in the world is involved in the web of trafficking activities, either as a country of origin, destination, or transit.

Refugee Task Force

The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) has established a special task force on the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East. Focused on facilitating a coordinated response from the global to the grass roots level, the task force will strengthen the collaboration between various Evangelical Alliances, agencies and churches that serve the needs of refugees while also addressing key concerns related to the protection of the most vulnerable communities.

Global Task Force on Nuclear Weapons

Though concern about the nuclear danger need not be theological, the comprehensive effects of a potential nuclear attack—spiritual, evangelistic, moral, physical, financial—must be a particular concern for disciples of Jesus Christ, and especially those dedicated to the global spread of the gospel.

United Nations Engagement

Serving a constituency of some 600 million evangelical Christians, the WEA is uniquely positioned to represent an evangelical voice at the UN. Since the relocation of its Headquarters to New York in 2010, the WEA has increased its engagement at the UN promoting peace and reconciliation, advocating for the poor and needy, and also communicating evangelical beliefs and values. The WEA holds Special Consultative Status in the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) which serves as the central forum for discussing international economic and social issues, and for formulating policy recommendations addressed to Member States and the United Nations system.
