The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is a global association with its leadership office in Vancouver, Canada, which serves as a network for evangelical organizations and denominations around the world.

Founded in London in 1951, the World Evangelical Alliance has its roots in the launch in 1846 of the Evangelical Alliance in the UK. It currently claims that "WEA is a network of churches in 128 nations that have each formed an evangelical alliance and over 100 international organizations joining together to give a worldwide identity, voice and platform to more than 420 million evangelical Christians"[1].

The governing body of the World Evangelical Alliance is the Executive Council, whose membership is drawn from among member organizations around the world. A General Assembly meets every four years to formulate a program for the Alliance, which is then carried out through the office of the International Director, and by the staff of WEA's various commissions and ministry departments.

The WEA has maintained an ecumenical dialogue with the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity for some years now. Its office responsible for the consultation is the theological commission.[2]
