Please note: WE have many couples involved in ministry where both are members. Membership is on an individual basis and only members have voting privileges. Membership of one spouse does not transfer to the other. If a couple desires to hold memberships with Worldwide Evangelism, both the husband and wife should apply, and the process of membership will be as stated above for each applicant. Application fees and membership dues will be on an individual basis. Following approval of membership, in second year of membership, the couples membership discount will apply.
