Where WEC Works
WEC is working in over 70 countries amongst nearly 100 people groups. God is at work and on the move. We have witnessed massive shifts in mission which is now from anywhere to everywhere, involving new partnerships that span languages, culture, even civilizations. Our focus of activity varies incredibly, according to what those ‘on the ground’ sense God wants to do in the local context.
Our main regions of involvement are …
WEC is working alongside emerging national churches in Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, South Africa and Mozambique.
From home of the Reformation and the modern missionary movement, the church in Europe is very much in decline. Church planting teams, along with a variety of supporting ministries exist in Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the U.K.
- Middle East & North Africa
A long standing witness has existed among numerous peoples. Commonly known as “creative access nations”, workers faithfully flesh out the gospel in a huge variety of business and professional contexts. Church planting remains the focus.
Church growth in Asia has exploded. Ever increasing numbers of Korean and Chinese background believers are represented in WEC. However, many countries are still extremely resistant to the gospel. Multicultural teams are spearheading advances into most of these least reached areas.
While many established churches exist in this region, WEC is active in inspiring, mobilising and training churches in cross-cultural mission involvement. It is also modelling church planting in several locations that are home to unreached peoples.
Within the Americas, WEC’s emphasis is on mobilizing and recruiting new workers, and on church planting among indigenous peoples. We operate in three major languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and among 15 different ethnic groups, mostly in Brazil and Mexico.
- Central Asia
WEC is involved in serving communities throughout Central Asia. We are working in a variety of roles, alongside other Christian agencies, and with the local church where it exists.
“WEC Bases”: We currently have 18 such bases in the world which, in partnership with churches, recruit, screen, orientate and send workers. They operate from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Fiji, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands, U.K. and U.S.A.
Not all of our teams have websites. Below is a list of non-security sensitive countries for which WEC has websites. In many, WEC is planting churches. Others are places where we’re recruiting and sending out cross-cultural church-planting workers. In a number of countries we do both.
