December 13, 2012
The World Council of Churches (WCC) is seeking young Christians between 18 and 30 to serve as stewards for the WCC 10th Assembly, to be held Oct. 23-Nov. 10, 2013 in Busan, South Korea.
The stewards program will last three weeks and will include ecumenical education and formation and training for the Assembly service. Deadline for applications is Feb. 7, 2013.
The assembly’s theme is “God of life, lead us to justice and peace.”
During the assembly stewards will assist in the areas of worship, plenary productions, documentation, communications and other administrative and support tasks. Following the meeting, stewards will design ecumenical projects that they will implement in their churches and communities upon their return.
The WCC assembly is the “supreme legislative body” of the WCC, and meets every seven years. 150 stewards will help to make this event happen.
Being a steward means hard work, but it is also a unique ecumenical experience of togetherness with other young people from different churches, countries and cultures.
