Specialized Ministries

(Ecumenical agencies)

Specialized ministries are specialized diaconal/sectoral ministries (or departments) within WCC member churches, organizations, churches and church-related organizations, or mission organizations, working in the area of development, relief, mission and advocacy.   

The specialized ministries take part in the round table convened by the WCC for sharing areas of common interest, views and strategies in order to build synergies and common action.
