Young Christians from around the world are invited to apply to the World Council of Churches (WCC) Stewards Programme for the WCC Central Committee meeting which will be held from 26 June to 10 July 2014.

Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old.

The WCC Central Committee meeting will take place in Geneva, Switzerland.

Before the meeting begins, stewards will follow an on-site ecumenical learning programme, exposing them to the key issues of the worldwide ecumenical movement.

During the Central Committee meeting stewards will assist in the areas of worship, floor management, documentation, communications and other administrative and support tasks.

Following the meeting, stewards will design ecumenical projects that they will implement in their churches and communities upon their return.

The WCC Stewards Programme is a unique ecumenical experience of togetherness with other young people from different churches, countries and cultures, says the WCC.

Applicants are invited to send a completed application form to the WCC youth programme no later than 21 February 2014.
