World Evangelization Conference

At Dallas Theological Seminary

March 7-11, 2021

Dallas, TX


Welcome to WEC WEEK 2021

The theme for the 2020 World Evangelization Conference (WEC) is "Wherever. Whenever." This year in particular, we are focusing on why missions matters to everyone regardless of their vocational paths. We believe that mission matters for each of us because the Great Commission is for each of us, and therefore we want to ignite conversations about how to make wherever you are, and whenever you can, a Great Commission moment.

 - Hope Goldman, 2020 WEC Chair

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples!

                                                   - Psalm 96:3
