World Outreach Committee - (WOC):

The World Outreach Committee of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church has been established by the General Assembly as one of its permanent committees. Membership on the committee is through election by the General Assembly of six ruling elders and three teaching elders, plus the Stated Clerk, Moderator and Moderator-Elect of the EPC.

The relationship of the WOC to the presbyteries and sessions of the denomination is defined by the duties assigned to the WOC by the General Assembly. The World Outreach Committee’s broad task is to provide leadership and consultation for the EPC in developing a mission program and in seeking to develop and strengthen a mission spirit across the denomination, enabling the EPC to be a mission church in belief and in action.

Current members of the World Outreach Committee include: 


, Stated Clerk Moderator
, Assistant Stated Clerk
Ken Roesler

In order to facilitate the work of sending and support missionaries on the field, the World Outreach has established a Personnel Committee. The responsibilities of this committee include the approval of candidates for mission service in the EPC, the evaluation of current missionaries, and the approval of Terms of Call (financial support package) for current missionaries.

Current members of the Personnel Committee include:
