Statements Regarding the Wycliffe Global Alliance’s Relationship with the Church

The Wycliffe Global Alliance hosted more than 60 participants from around the world for three missiological consultations that were held in September 2017 (South Africa), November 2017 (Germany) and March 2018 (Thailand). The theme for these consultations was: The Church—The Alliance: An Alliance Missiological Exploration of its Relationship with the Church in God’s Mission.

The purpose of the consultations was:

  • to explore the relationship between the Church and mission;
  • to inform the Wycliffe Global Alliance and its organizations on how they relate to the Church and churches in mission. This included how the Alliance speaks about itself in relation to the Church, and how the Alliance relates to the Church and churches regarding Bible translation practices; and
  • to clarify and strengthen the ecclesiology of the Alliance.
