New York, NY – March 12, 2015
New Zealand Christian Network is the NZ member and representative of the World Evangelical Alliance. With so many global issues that require a variety of groups to play their part, it is important to build relationships with other key players.
In the first week of his tenure, Secretary General of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Bishop Efraim Tendero met with United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the UN Headquarters in New York to discuss ways to strengthen partnership on issues of common concern. Bishop Tendero affirmed WEA’s commitment to continue working with the UN on global and national level to address subjects such as violent conflict, extreme poverty and corruption, and to strengthen inter-faith dialogue and the care for creation.
