The World Executive (World Officers, Area Presidents and Tree of Life Editor) met in Melbourne, Australia, from July 13th to 18th, 2014.
Much of the time was spent in planning for the World Assembly to be held at the Hilton Downtown, Houston, Texas, USA, from Monday, August 29th to Saturday, September 3rd, 2016.
The full Executive (including Area Vice Presidents) will meet on August 27th and 28th at the same time and location as the 2016 – 2021 Helen Kim Memorial Scholars. The new and old Executive will meet on Sunday, September 4th.
The theme for the 2016 Assembly is “CHOSEN PEOPLE: CALLED TO PROCLAIM” and is based on the Good News translation of 1 Peter 2: 9 & 10.
For the past 2 quinquenniums the Federation has worked very hard on the Millennium Development Goals. This has given us great opportunity to work out the social justice component of our Wesleyan tradition. With this new theme there is opportunity to bring in a balance of Wesleyan holiness and social concern. We will remember who we are. We will develop our relationship with Christ. Then we will be equipped to share Christ with others as we proclaim his love through worship, social action, and relationships.
These will be the 3 areas we will explore through workshops at the Assembly.
The Executive launches on this site a competition for a logo design to be used for the Assembly.
This will be used on the website, the registration and advertising for the Assembly, banners, name tags and any merchandise used by the Assembly. It will remain in use right through the quinquennium, 2016 – 2021. It will be the property of the World Federation.
Members of the Federation are invited to advertise this logo competition throughout their churches.
A written explanation of the artwork is to accompany the design.
Closing date: September 30th.
