The work of four associations is co-ordinated at the Secretariat:
- The Evangelical Mission in Solidarity (EMS) acts as an association with its own tasks and as the umbrella organisation for missionary societies which are members in the EMS association:
- The Basel Mission - German Branch (BMDZ) which is firmly anchored in many regions in south-west Germany due to the 200-year history of the Basel Mission.
- The Evangelical Association for the Schneller Schools (EVS) with its recognised educational work in the Middle East.
- The German East Asia Mission (DOAM) which has included intercultural learning in its programme from the very beginning.
