New York, NY. (212) 870-2227.

With 36 Protestant, Anglican, and Orthodox denominations across the country, the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. (NCCC) promotes Christian ecumenical communication and cooperation. Member denominations partner with each other and with national non-profit organizations to address such issues as hunger, war, human rights, poverty, racism, and the environment. Key alliances include Bread for the World, the Children’s Defense Fund, and Habitat for Humanity. Educational services feature curriculum and leader formation, studies on racial/ethnic culture, and support for family, young adult, and youth ministries. The NCCC publishes an annual 'Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches', which provides information on American and Canadian religious bodies, theological seminaries, and research organizations, as well as a statistical section and a calendar for church use. The NCCC’s comprehensive web site lists its mission, activities, and services. Church leaders interested in ways their congregations might participate with congregations from other denominations to promote peace and justice and to develop educational opportunities will find the NCCC an invaluable resource.
