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. 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.
Jesus humbled Himself to become a man, setting aside His glory, to be one of us. Because He took the punishment of sin in our place, tasting death for everyone, God crowned Him with glory and honor. That should reveal to us the great heart of God who was willing to give His only Son, but also that He honors those who sacrifice for the good of others. Jesus sacrificed His life for the purpose of bringing many sons to glory. He left His glory so that He could bring you to glory.
