With over 1,800 workers in about 90 countries, WEC is truly an international mission agency. Its primary goal is to take the gospel to the least-reached peoples of the world, and to see churches planted and growing among them.

To achieve this, it works alongside local churches to:

  • evangelise, make disciples and start churches
  • translate scriptures and teach literacy
  • train leaders, run clinics and hospitals
  • rescue and rehabilitate addicts
  • care for children in crisis, work with young people
  • respond to people’s needs with compassion, wherever Christ sends.
