Evangelische Missionswerk in Deutschland (EMW)

The Association of Protestant Churches and Missions in Germany (EMW) is a fellowship of Protestant churches – whether members of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) or Free Churches –, mission departments and associations supporting missionary, ecumenical and development cooperation between Christians in Germany and churches overseas.

The EMW has close working relations
with partners in all continents such as global ecumenical bodies as there are:
■ the World Council of Churches (WCC), the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the World Community of Reformed Churches (WCRC)
■ continental, regional and national Church Councils and Christian Conferences
■ churches and church organisations
■ grass-root organisations and actors in civil society.

Cooperation in World Mission: Regional Desks
Working together for God’s mission calls for intensive dialogue with partners. The EMW has a number of regional desks responsible for relations with partners in various parts of the world and different areas of activity:
■ the Desk for Africa/Middle East,
■ the Desk for Latin America, and
■ the Desk for Asia/Pacific
They coordinate the work between Christians in Germany and churches and organisations overseas. They organize mutual visits, consultations and meetings to promote North-South exchange and make the voices and concerns of partners heard in Germany.

EMW‘s support for the partners
Funds from German churches are channelled via EMW to support mission programmes run by partners such as the World Council of Churches, World Bible Society, the Christian Conference of Asia and others. One major focus is on supporting theological education overseas.
Many smaller ecumenical organisations, Christian youth networks or projects aimed at improving inter-religious dialogue are assisted by EMW.

The Theological Education and Studies Desk
This desk provides accompaniment and support for ecumenical theological seminaries, colleges and associations of educational institutions in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, the Pacific and Asia.
It stipulates debates on mission and contextual theology, inter-religious dialogue and ecumenical issues.
