Empowering Equipping Sending
General Conference of Evangelical Protestant Churches
The General Conference of Evangelical Protestant Churches is an organizational (Evangelical Protestant Churches, GCEPC)member of the NAE and thereby the WEA. Through these two organizations we can join together with others of like-mind and spirit to make our voice known globally, network with other ministries and ministers, and proclaim the Gospel of the "Good News" of Jesus Christ to the world. Our ministers are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities these memberships afford us in connecting and networking with others in ministry who share our common goals and interests.
Founded in 1942 the mission of the National Association of Evangelicals is to extend the Kingdom of God through a fellowship of member denominations, churches, organizations and individuals, demonstrating the unity of the body of Christ by standing for biblical truth, speaking with a representative voice, and serving the evangelical community through united action, cooperative ministry and strategic planning. The NAE has a rich history of facilitating Christian unity, public witness and cooperative ministry among evangelical denominations, congregations, educational institutions and service agencies in the United States.
Evangelical Women Leaders Commission
The Evangelical Women Leaders of the NAE brings together women leaders from denominations, organizations and parachurch ministries who hold NAE membership. This unique group meets annually, just prior to the spring NAE board meeting. For more information or to get involved with the Evangelical Women Leaders, GCEPC members may email Nancy Clark at the NAE.

World Evangelical Alliance is a global ministry working with local churches around the world to join in common concern to live and proclaim the Good News of Jesus in their communities. WEA is a network of churches in 128 nations that have each formed an evangelical alliance and over 100 international organizations joining together to give a worldwide identity, voice and platform to more than 420 million evangelical Christians. Seeking holiness, justice and renewal at every level of society - individual, family, community and culture, God is glorified and the nations of the earth are forever transformed.
Christians from ten countries met in London in 1846 for the purpose of launching, in their own words, "a new thing in church history, a definite organization for the expression of unity amongst Christian individuals belonging to different churches." This was the beginning of a vision that was fulfilled in 1951 when believers from 21 countries officially formed the World Evangelical Fellowship. Today, 150 years after the London gathering, WEA is a dynamic global structure for unity and action that embraces 420 million evangelicals in 128 countries. It is a unity based on the historic Christian faith expressed in the evangelical tradition. And it looks to the future with vision to accomplish God's purposes in discipling the nations for Jesus Christ.
