Global Evangelism Network

About Global Evangelism Network

GEN is part of WEA’s Global Witness department alongside the Mission Commission, each entity focusing on different aspects of God’s mission and working collaboratively to strengthen and widen the Church’s witness in the world.


The GEN serves as a bridging point with the WEA for existing evangelism-focused movements and organizations. It will represent the WEA in the constellation of evangelistic associations and networks; convene leadership roundtables, forums, conferences and other gatherings to cross-pollinate ideas, practices, and collaborative opportunities; and conduct research into evangelistic practice in our contemporary global context.

Evangelism Initiatives

The WEA GEN is partnering with a number of movements and initiatives that encourage evangelism. One of them is the GO Movement that highlights the month of May as a time for intentional outreach.
