It was announced on 18 February 2008 that "The general secretary of the World Council of Churches, Rev. Samuel Kobia, has announced that he will not seek a second term as the head of the world's biggest Christian grouping". "Mr. Kobia was elected in August 2003 to lead the Geneva-based grouping that now has 349 member churches, representing 560 million Christians worldwide. He was the first African elected to the post and he took office in January 2004 for his five-year term". Bishop Martin Hein, a member of WCC central committee from the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) "said the council was failing to make its presence sufficiently known in the world. He suggested that ... the WCC had been unable to develop 'visions and perspectives that are able to be communicated', and he said that Mr. Kobia was travelling too much outside Geneva". "Mr. Kobia is the sixth WCC general secretary and the third Methodist to hold the post of WCC general secretary".
