The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is looking for a full-time Advocacy Officer, to be a part of the WEA Geneva UN Liaison team. The role is key to accomplishing a new step in its mission that started in 2012. The goal of this office is to strengthen the voice of the 600 million evangelicals worldwide in order to achieve positive structural changes in their countries, improving Rule of Law, freedom of conscience, religious freedom, minority rights, social justice, development and good governance. The office works as much as possible with representatives of the evangelical constituencies such as the national Evangelical Alliances and tries to reinforce and equip them. Whenever possible, it encourages them to work in partnership with others that share joint advocacy objectives and invites them to present their thrust towards their national political leaders who report to the international bodies in Geneva. WEA wants to give evangelicals an opportunity to raise a voice for the vulnerable in their context. The team is currently composed of Michael Mutzner, Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva (40%) and Albert Hengelaar, Advocacy and Development Officer (50%).
Established in 1846, the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is a network of churches consisting of national evangelical alliances from 129 different countries, including 100 international organisations that have joined together to establish a world-wide identity, voice, and platform for the more than 600 million evangelical Christians around the globe.
The World Evangelical Alliance is formally registered as an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations. This accreditation provides ample opportunities to be a voice for the worldwide evangelical community. The office is a platform for evangelical constituencies to raise their voices and to engage governments when their human rights record is discussed at the United Nations in Geneva. In 2012-2015, the office ran a successful pilot phase; 2016-2019 is meant to be a phase to build up the office and enlarge the team by hiring a full-time advocacy professional from the Global South, in order to increase the impact and the quality of the service we offer to the Church, and beyond, to the world.
The new advocacy officer will be offered a unique experience in a strategic ministry: Serving and representing a global constituency, organized in member based civil society institutions; getting to know evangelical constituencies from all over the world and supporting them to achieve positive change in their countries; participating in the Geneva based UN human rights mechanisms, such as the Human Rights Council; being part of an experienced team at WEA GVA and within the WEA at large.
Starting date: 2017 (exact date to be discussed, depending on availability)
Employment: 80% – 100%
Salary: to be discussed – based on Swiss EA standards
Reporting to: WEA GVA Permanent Representative
The Advocacy Officer’s principal tasks are the following:
WEA GVA has a preference for a candidate from the global South, in order to contribute to a good geographical balance and representability of the WEA UN Liaison Office.
The Advocacy Officer is formally employed via the Swiss Evangelical Alliance. Salary is fixed according to the standards set by the Swiss Evangelical Alliance (Réseau évangélique suisse) for its staff.
The Advocacy Officer works under the supervision of the WEA Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva.
S/he is part of the WEA UN Team, that includes the WEA‘s Liaison Office in New York.
After a trial period of 3 months, evaluation of accomplishments, identification of areas of improvements and setting of new priorities will be done on a yearly basis under the leadership of the WEA Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva.
Under all circumstances, the Advocacy and Development Officer is expected:
Please send your CV, letter of recommendation and the contact details of 2 reference persons to: Albert Hengelaar, email@example.com, by 30 June 2017.

Paul’s letters stand at the centre of the dispute over women’s role in church ministry, with each side of the dispute championing texts from the Apostle. How do we understand those texts where Paul instructs women to be silent, or the 1 Timothy 2 passage where Paul forbids women to teach or exercise authority over men? Are these texts addressing a specific cultural situation or should they be treated as universal prohibitions?
Craig Keener delved deeply into the world of Paul and wrestled with these thorny texts in his book Paul,Women and Wives: Marriage and Women's Ministry in the Letters of...
