Newly Elected World AG Fellowship Leadership Spans Three Continents
MADRID — Delegates at the World Assemblies of God General Assembly in Madrid, Spain voted to elect Dominic Yeo as its new chairman. Yeo serves as the general superintendent of the Assemblies of God of Singapore. In 2017, Yeo was elected as secretary for the World AG Congress.
The World Assemblies of God Fellowship (WAGF) was founded in 1989 to serve as a cooperative body of national Assemblies of God fellowships on equal standing. While the WAGF is not a legislative entity, it serves as a means of cooperation in areas such as evangelism, relief work, and theological training. Yeo serves as the fifth chairman of the WAGF.
Doug Clay was elected as vice chairman of the WAGF. Clay has served as general superintendent of the U.S. Assemblies of God since 2017. Juan Carlos Escobar, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God of Spain, was elected to the position of secretary of the WAGF.
For the next decade, MM33 will become a major focus for the WAGF. Aligning with 2033, approximately 2000 years from the Resurrection of Jesus, MM33 seeks to make “His Mission Our Mandate.” MM33 represents the collaborative effort of the World Assemblies of God to engage in the greatest work of evangelism, discipleship, and church planting the world has ever seen.
“Psalm 133 promises a great blessing when believers are in unity,” Clay says. “That's a blessing that's clear to see on the WAGF Executive Committee when leaders from nations around the world cooperate to fulfill the Great Commission.”
