The World Student Christian Federation
WSCF / FUMEC / FUACE
The WSCF is a global fellowship of Student Christian Movements putting their faith into action to contribute to the renewal of the ecumenical movement and to promote justice and peace in the world.
WSCF is called to be a prophetic witness in church and the transformation of the world where God’s love for creation, justice and peace is shared by all across boundaries of race, class, ethnicity, culture, gender and sexuality.
This vision is nurtured by a radical hope of God’s reign in history and liberating faith in Jesus Christ.

Dear WSCF member movements, senior friends and partners,
Greetings from the WSCF Inter-regional office!
We continue to pray that you are all well at this time of COVID19 global pandemic. This pandemic has affected our lives, including the way we do our work and engage with all of you. With the postponement of our In-person 37th General Assembly (GA) last June in Berlin, we continue to strive and adapt to inevitable changes in the life of our Federation under this so called new normal. I’m therefore writing to inform you of two very important changes in the life of our global Federation today.
First, we wish to inform you of the resignation of Ms. Georgine Kengne Djeutane as WSCF Chairperson last September 2020. Georgine leaves the role and responsibilities of the chairperson position to our WSCF Co-vice chairpersons, Immanuel Gopala Kitnan and Salma Sharaf until the next General Assembly (GA) is organized where elections will be held for the new set officers of the Federation.
The World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) welcomes Christopher Chimangeni from Lilongwe as Executive for Africa and Director for Bible and Theology Program. He joins the WSCF global staff team working from Malawi where he will be hosted by the CYMA or Christian Youth of Malawi Association, WSCF member movement in Malawi. Christopher has been an active member of the movement and worked as the coordinator of the CYMA for 3 years until 2017. Prior to this appointment, Christopher has worked as Capacity Building Coordinator for the Don Bosco Youth Center and Program Manager of the Association of the Christian Educators in Malawi where he devoted his talents and skills to youth and young people.
