Meeting Wolfgang Huber

A special moment for some of the stewards: After the press conference yesterday the President of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany, his Excellence Dr. Dr. h.c. Wolfgang Huber, was glad about the opportunity so speak some minutes to stewards from Germany and the Czech Republic. He gave thanks to the young people for their work and motivated them to continue their engagement on an international ecumenical level. He also mentioned that two members of the German delegation started their "international careers" by being a steward 24 years ago. Now they have met again – as delegates in the 13th cec assembly.

On the picture you see (from right to left): Katrin Koelmann, Luisa Seelbach, Dr. Wolfgang Huber, Dora Pliskova and Daniel Lenski.


  1. Which persons of the German delegation were stewards? But I don't think, you should wait 24 years. You could become a (young) delegate already at the next Assembly of CEC or WCC.
    Also I would like to say, that in Germany we don't call our bishops "Your Excellency", but only "Bishop Huber".

  2. I agree with you on the fact that it shouldn't take 24 years for a steward to become delegate. The title "Excellency" was used by the moderators when they called him up yesterday for the bible work...
