WEA Confirms Date for 2014 General Assembly

September 12, 2011

On September 9, 2011, the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) together with the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) have confirmed dates for the 2014 WEA General Assembly, which will take place in Seoul, South Korea from October 18 to 26, 2014.

The proposed venue is the Asem Hall Coex Convention Center in Seoul.

“We are very grateful for the visit of the leaders of CCK to our headquarters in New York. We are also very thankful that both CCK and WEA leaders have agreed on the dates of the next General Assembly to be held in Seoul in 2014. It is our belief that this General Assembly will not only be historic but also by God’s grace and the empowerment of His Spirit will profoundly impact not only the spiritual climate of Korea but of the nations of world,” said Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, Secretary General/CEO of the WEA, who will be traveling to Seoul in November.  

The WEA plans in January 2012 to bring a working group to Seoul to work alongside Korean counterparts in preparation for this GA.

The WEA is the largest global evangelical body with a network of churches in 129 nations and an alliance of 100 international organizations. Representing over 600 million Christians worldwide, the WEA holds its general assembly every six years to conduct its business, train its leaders, promote mutual learning and partnerships, build synergy, and cast a vision for impacting the world. The last assembly was held October 2008 in Pattaya, Thailand.

The CCK, the largest alliance of churches in South Korea, has within its membership 69 denominations and 20 Christian organizations that together represent over 12 million Christians in the world’s second largest missionary-sending country.
