Micah Global is a network and a movement.

Governance is provided by a Board of Directors selected from the membership and representing the regions from around the world.

Day to day management and coordination of Micah Network is delegated to the International Director, who together with the Staff Team, work alongside members to fulfil the shared vision and mission.

Micah is a registered charity with their Secretariat based in the United Kingdom. The UK Charity Registration number is: 1103048

Coordination and networking needs to be relevant, accessible, inclusive and timely. To facilitate this and ensure members are enabled to actively engage in the network, coordination and oversight occurs at three levels:

  • To strengthen cooperation and partnerships between Christian organisations globally

  • To establish regional coordination groups who will be responsible for the development of regional strategic plans

  • Facilitate a global consultation every three years (triennial).

 

Regional: 

Governance: Regional Coordination Group and International Director

Management: Regional Coordinator

  • To strengthen cooperation and partnership between Christian organisations within their region

  • To establish national coordination groups where requested who will be responsible for development of national plans

  • Facilitate regional consultations

Note: Micah is a global network and movement; therefore the regional and national coordination groups are there to contextualise, advise and support the outworking of the vision, mission and programme objectives.
