At the start of 2018, Elijah Brown assumed the responsibility of General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA). Prior to this role, he was the Executive Vice President of the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, a Christian human rights organization that advocates for religious freedom. Canadian Baptist Ministries is a member of the BWA, which is a network of 235 member bodies in 122 countries, representing more than 45 million individuals and 170,000 churches. Please pray for Elijah as he transitions into this important leadership role. We pray that God would give him wisdom, discernment and guidance as he makes decisions and plans for the future of the organization.
