Our Structure

Global Fellowship consists of 72 national organisations which come together into ten regions around the world. Each region works in a different way depending on the local context. Global Fellowship connects to both the regions and the national organisations in a non-hierarchical structure.

The regions organise a variety of joint activities for young people, leaders and staff members from the national organisations in their area. These include: Exchange programs, youth events, fund raising activities, sharing of information and resources, regional camps etc. Regions can also take responsibility for developing new member organisations in countries that are not yet members of Global Fellowship through prayer, manpower and financial support. Regions hold elections at varying intervals for their posts of President / chairman / secretary etc.

The regions all face different challenges to their work, some meet and hold events more frequently than others.

Council Meetings
Every three years a Council Meeting is held for member organisations of Global Fellowship. Every organisation is welcome to attend and individuals who are representing their region can also hold voting rights depending on the size of the region (the more people who are members of the regions organisations, the more votes the region holds). Individuals who are representing their region can also stand to be elected onto the Executive Committee. The Council Meeting hears reports from the Chief Executive, the Treasurer and the Chairman of the Executive Committee. The strategy for the previous three years is evaluated and the proposed strategy for the coming three years can be discussed. The next Council Meeting will be held in 2016.

Executive Committee (ExCo)
The ExCo are elected every 3 years and an individual cannot serve more than 3 terms (a maximum of 9 years). Once elected the four ExCo members choose a Chairman from among themselves and propose a treasurer to join them. Four ExCo members are elected at the Council Meeting for a three year term and there can be no more than 2 from the same region. The treasurer is also confirmed by the meeting. Those five members of ExCo can co-opt up to two other people to join them if they wish, so ExCo can be between 5-7 people.

The role of ExCo is to act as the trustees for the organisation with the responsibility of setting the direction and policy. The position is voluntary (unpaid). They meet twice a year in person and often in different combinations on Skype.
