Global Advocacy

WEA works to strengthen its members - 143 national church alliances around the world - which results in better-trained pastors and more effective church ministry, evangelism, discipleship and practical care for churches and communities. WEA also leads in Global Advocacy for religious freedom and other human rights. Our teams work out of U.N. offices in New York, Geneva, Bonn and Nairobi which, together with the Office of the Secretary General speaks to world leaders, the media and the United Nations with whom the WEA holds official special status. Our voice seeks to clarify evangelical perspectives and positions, lobbies for fair and just public policies for religious and human rights freedoms and intervenes in documented cases of direct persecution.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
