The Commission on Education and Ecumenical Formation (CEEF) is the WCC's primary advisory body for the whole area of education, ecumenical formation and faith nurture, which was identified as a central priority by the WCC 9th Assembly in 2006. The CEEF develops priorities and methodologies in these areas, fosters networking, exchange and collaboration among ecumenical institutions and experts in the area of ecumenical formation. Taking into account the spirit of the assembly, the CEEF was integrated with the Board of the Ecumenical Institute Bossey.

CEEF has thirty members from WCC member churches all over the world as well as six consultants from related partners, including  the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity..  On the commission elected by the central committee in July 2014 both men and women, ordained and lay are strongly represented. Twenty two percent of commissioners are young adults.

The commission leadership comprises Rev. Dr Rudolf von Sinner, Evangelical Church of Lutheran Confession in Brazil as moderator and Dr Esther Mombo, Anglican Church of Kenya as vice-moderator.  The commission meets on a semi-annual basis between the 10th and 11th assemblies, so far with meetings organised in 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland and in 2017 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
