Regional Secretaries

World Methodist Evangelism functions globally through the leadership of our Regional Secretaries. Through these dedicated leaders, WME is able to connect regularly with leadership in the broader Wesleyan Methodist family in each area of the world to identify evangelism needs, challenges, opportunities, and joys.

Our Regional Secretaries bring the voice of their areas into the work of WME and bring the voice of WME into the work in their areas.
