World Olivet Assembly (WOA) is a global gathering of evangelical churches and para-church organizations existing for the advancement of world mission. The organization is structured through regional and national chapters working together with several global partners.
The assembly first began in 2000 as a loose association of world evangelical bodies formed by alumni of Olivet Theological College and Seminary. The network's development culminated in the inauguration of the World Olivet Assembly in 2007.
The name “Olivet” means “Mount of Olives.” WOA exists to promote unity within the evangelical church and the greater body of Christ through providing a platform for shared dialogue, ideas and resources.
The General Office of the WOA is like the central nervous system of the global mission operation. It receives information from the regional assemblies, coming to know the overall situation of each country, then through prayer and discussion sets the direction for the global mission.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
God's Unconditional Love Demonstrated through His Son's Cross
OA churches and ministries will offer Ash Wednesday Service to commence the Lenten period of 2019. In this season, Christians enter into another profound time of the liturgical year after Christmas to meditate on the theme of Cross and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Churches take part in special Bible Studies that illuminate the Lord's suffering and love.
