The General Assembly – the highest decision-making body of the WSCF – is the most representative expression of the WSCF’s life where the different members and representatives from all corners of the world have the chance to come together to talk about issues important to their activities and to direct the work of the Federation for the next four years. The mandate of the General Assembly will be fulfilled by the elected Executive Committee. The Federation is governed by its Constitution and Bye-Laws ratified and amended as needed by the General Assembly.

37th General Assembly
June 4 to 11, 2020
Zwinglikerk, Berlin, Germany
Theme: “Rejoice in Hope” (Romans 12:12)


The WSCF General Assembly or GA is the most representative and highest-policy making body of the Federation.  It is to convene once every four years or within six years in extra-ordinary circumstances to bring together its 108 member movements from 94 countries.

The 35th in-face regular session of the GA was held in Bogota Colombia from February 27 to March 5, 2015.  At this GA, a proposal was passed for the Federation to undergo a transition period with guidelines approved for implementation. Two years later, an Extra-ordinary Assembly, the 36th officially recognized by the Executive Committee, was held online from May 22 to 28, 2017 primarily to amend the WSCF Constitution. The Online GA was a transition mandate from the GA in Bogota and approved by the Executive Committee Meeting in Palermo December 2016.  It was participated-in by 60 delegates from 80 Affiliated member movements and ExCo members.

35th WSCF General Assembly - Bogotá

“We are Many, We are One - Sent Out to Build God’s Peace”

This was the theme of the 35th WSCF General Assembly gathering from February 27 to March 5, 2015 at the YMCA, Bogotá, Colombia. It was the most important event in the life of the Federation in the past seven years with 163 participants and 78 official delegates representing 64 member movements, partners, senior friends and churches. The GA was a turning point in the life of the Federation because its mandates were to:

  1. implement plans for strategic changes for the future of the Federation;
  2. engage in a continuing dialogue on issues of Identity, Diversity and Dialogue;
  3. work for Peace and Justice in Colombia, Palestine and the Middle East; and
  4. celebrate and share the life together in Christ and welcome the birth of new movements.
