Administrative / Biographical History

The Council of the Evangelical Union of South America was founded in 1964, replacing the previous Inter-Field Council. It was convened by the EUSA General Secretary, based in the field in Teresópolis, Brazil. Meeting every two to three years, the Council was the final authority within EUSA, and decided upon higher matters of policy and principles, leaving day-to-day operations in the United Kingdom to the EUSA British Executive, and operations inside Latin America to national Field Executives. It was headed by a Chairman, and consisted of chairmen of the British and Latin American Field Executives, along with nominated members. The General Secretary was the Executive Officer of the Council and was non-voting.
