World Services (or WS) is a collection of secretive, undercover homes or "units" primarily handling finances, publications, and special projects. WS operates under very surreptitious conditons (see: Secrecy), even from the rest of the group. Such units are often heavily subsidized or fully supported by funds alloted them by David Berg, and now Karen Zerby and Steven Kelly. Members of such units are taught they are the crème de la crème, since they are specially selected for their talents, trusted with very sensitive information, and their units were or are directly answerable to Berg or Zerby.

Most WS members are required to clock a minimum of 48 hours of work per week (this number occasionally changes).

Many Family publications were copyrighted under the name World Services.

The following is an incomplete list of past and present locations of WS units and sub-units. Due to the extremely expensive and time-consuming aspect of moving a unit, they usually avoid translocating. As a result of this, many of these units remain in the same area for many years.

  • Fluelen, Switzerland ("EURCRO Office", "Aurora Home", "Family Missions Foundation", etc.)
  • Leanyfalu, Budapest (Eastern "EURCRO Office", "MM Home"/EECCC, European "PPC")
  • Dallas, Texas
