Methods
  1. Provide forums for the exchange of information and missiological reflection (web based, conferences,
    gathering of specialists, etc).
  2. Encourage members to share their tracks, means, resources, and experience.
  3. Encourage the creation of specific partnerships as a result of communication, cooperation, and specific objectives.

Part 2

Structure

  1. The WMC will be appointed by and accountable to the PWF advisory committee. The WMC will nominate prospective members to make up the commission, based on a balanced geographical
    and organizational representation, to the advisory committee for consideration.
  2. The PWF advisory committee will appoint the chairman and the WMC will name any other officers as needed.
  3. The WMC will meet once a year and /or as needed.
  4. The WMC has also organization members. Any Pentecostal mission organization or mission department of a national church accepting the doctrinal statement of the PWF and this document of the WMC can become an organization member of the WMC.
  5. Any modifications in the future to the guidelines should be confirmed by the PWF advisory committee.

Part 3

Finances

  1. Finances received through voluntary contributions will be channeled through PWF accounts and their
    distribution will be communicated as well to both the WMC and PWF advisory committee.
  2. The organization members have to pay annual dues decided by the commission and confirmed by the advisory committee of the PWF.
  3. Normative practice will be for each member to fund their own participation in the meetings and the commission will seek to support members in situations where that is not always feasible.
