Apply now: Assembly Stewards Program 2013
Young Christians from around the world are invited to apply to the World Council of Churches (WCC) Stewards Program for a 3 week hands-on learning experience at the WCC 10th Assembly from October 23 to November 10, 2013. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old.
The WCC assembly will take place in Busan, Republic of Korea, addressing the theme “God of life, lead us to justice and peace”.
Before the assembly begins, stewards will follow an online and on-site ecumenical learning program, exposing them to the key issues of the worldwide ecumenical movement.
During the assembly stewards will assist in the areas of worship, plenary productions, documentation, communications and other administrative and support tasks. Following the meeting, stewards will design ecumenical projects that they will implement in their churches and communities upon their return.
The WCC assembly is the “supreme legislative body” of the WCC, and meets every seven years. 150 stewards will help to make this event happen.
Being a steward means hard work, but it is also a unique ecumenical experience of togetherness with other young people from different churches, countries and cultures.
Applicants are invited to send a completed application form to the WCC youth program no later than 7 February 2013.
