“Your Sons and Daughters Shall Prophesy”


Every four years WSCF holds a General Assembly as the most representative expression of the WSCF’s life. Its functions are:

WSCF General Assembly websiteTheme

Your sons and daughters shall prophesy (from the Book of the Prophet Joel)

“I shall pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy... and your young people shall see visions.”

The theme from the prophet Joel is quoted in the story of Pentecost found in the Acts of the Apostles chapter 2. The text emphasises the role of youth in the dreams of the early church and the sense of optimism experienced at Pentecost. By choosing this theme, we seek to connect WSCF with the prophetic tradition and to express a sense of optimism, vision, strength and purpose for this General Assembly and the coming quadrennium.
