Grace Communion International is a member of several national evangelical alliances around the world. In the U.S. we’re members of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) and Joseph Tkach serves on the NAE board. In the UK we are members of the Evangelical Alliance (EA); the brother-in-law of one of our pastors served as EA president.
In the Philippines, GCI is a member of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC) and its missions arm, the Philippine Missions Association (PMA). Two of our GCI-Philippines national leaders (Eugene Guzon and Rey Taniajura) are close friends of Bishop Efraim Tendero who leads the PCEC and PMA (Rey formerly served as PMA director and now is a PMA board member).
Bishop Tendero (pictured at fight) will be leaving his PCEC/PMA responsibilities soon to serve as Secretary General of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA), which represents more than 600 million evangelicals around the world. “I am humbled by the trust that is given to me to be the leader of Evangelicals around the world,” Tendero said in a statement released by WEA. “This is an enormous task and I put my whole trust and confidence in the Almighty God who called me into this ministry, believing that he will provide the wisdom, favor, and grace needed in carrying out this solemn responsibility.”
