Local and Regional Ecumenism

In many counties, towns, cities, and states across the United States, Christians of all kinds come together as one body of Christ in councils of churches, as part of interfaith councils, in cooperative social ministries, as informal neighborhood initiatives, in advocacy organizations, as clergy associations, and in many other communities. The National Council of Churches is one part of this large and diverse tapestry of the one ecumenical movement, and NCC relates to these groups in a variety of mutually supportive ways. More.
