The Presidents of the National Council of Churches. They come from all walks of life: bishops, pastors, teachers, lay leaders, government officials, civil rights leaders, business leaders and lawyers. For more than 50 years, they have represented a wide range of church traditions and social backgrounds. What they have in common is a commitment to work together with other Christians and other faiths for the good of all, and to live out the prayer of Jesus Christ, "that they all should be one."
