WHO: The 270-member General Assembly meets annually. It is the primary legislative body of the NCC, whose 34 Protestant and Orthodox member denominations have, in turn, 52 million congregants.

Founded in 1950, the NCC is the nation's leading ecumenical organization and the locus for a wide array of ministries, including humanitarian assistance (through Church World Service), justice ministries, interfaith dialogue, education and the pursuit of greater Christian unity. (The NCC's 50-member Executive Board is a high-level "subset" of the Assembly.)
