The European Evangelical Alliance brings together both the national Evangelical Alliances of Europe and a large number of pan-European mission agencies. It has existed as a regional group since the 1950's, but traces its roots to the 1846 conference at which the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) was established. It is the European section of the WEA. EEA serves as a meeting place, a platform for common action, and a voice for Europe's Evangelicals.
The EEA's common desire is to serve the region by making Christ known and extending His kingdom both nationally and internationally. We aim to think globally and act locally, nationally and regionally. Our goal is to help one another to be contemporary Christian communities which both transform and redeem our wider communities.
The EEA encourages national Alliances to serve one another, and seeks to develop national Evangelical Alliances where they do not yet exist. The EEA is active in areas where working together makes us stronger across the continent as a whole:
• The EEA Brussels office represents 15 million European evangelicals from 35 countries to the European Union.
• The EEA Youth Network equips a growing number of national youth networks.
• The EEA Socio-Political arm helps national Evangelical Alliances to develop their social, advocacy, and religious liberty ministries.
• The EEA is in close partnership with the European Evangelical Missionary Alliance (EEMA) and continues regular, informal relations with Hope for Europe.
