The executive committee manages GNPT’s issues between the triennial consultations. Principally, it organizes the triennial consultation, approves membership requests, and ensures the communication between the different regions.

The members of the executive committee are: the chair, two vice-chairs (one from the present hosting institution and one from the successor institution), five regional representatives, the editor of the International Journal of Public Theology and the previous chair (for one year).
