The President of the Royal Ghassanid Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Protestant Grand Chaplain of the Equestrian Order of Michael Archangel Dr Thomas Schirrmacher was elected the new Secretary General of the World Evangelical Alliance.
The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is a global organization of evangelical churches, serving more than 600 million evangelicals, founded in 1846 at Freemasons’ Hall in London, England, United Kingdom to unite evangelicals worldwide. WEA is the largest international organization of evangelical churches. The headquarters is in Deerfield, Illinois. It brings together 7 regional and 135 evangelical alliances of churches, and over 150 member organizations. Some of the national alliances include Protestant churches which are not traditional Evangelical churches in the strict sense (anabaptism, networks & church denominations). Moreover, the WEA includes a certain percentage of individual evangelical Christian churches. It is open for membership of individual evangelical Christians (as compared to the World Council of Churches(WCC), where individual membership is not possible). The Evangelical Alliance of the United Kingdom, its founding member, is part of WEA.
Dr Schirrmacher has been a Royal House of Ghassan’s close collaborator for many years and a personal friend of HRH Prince Gharios El Chemor and all the Royal Family that wish the new WEA’s Secretary General all the Blessings and success.
