Since 1980, Operation World has been a part of the Christian charity and mission organisation WEC International. This offers fellowship, support, oversight, and accountability to Operation World in an era where such issues are vital for healthy ministries.
WEC was originally founded as Heart of Africa Mission in 1913 by C.T. Studd, the famed English cricketer and one of the Cambridge Seven. After years of missionary service in China, and then pastoring in India, C.T. was called by God to reach the unreached peoples in what is now the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
WEC International takes the good news to the peoples and nations who have yet to hear it: the good news that Christ came to bring forgiveness of sins and peace with God, and to displace hatred with love.
As we enter the life of a local community we expect to see churches flourish in cultures where Christ is little known. Our diverse activities include youth work, teaching, medical work, music and the arts, Bible translation and literacy, business enterprises, ministries with addicts and children in crisis, and helping local Christians to share the gospel cross-culturally.
WEC is committed to finding new, creative and culturally-relevant ways of doing missions.
