The Ohio Council of Churches (OCC) is a partnership of 17 Christian faith denominations throughout the State of Ohio.
Established in 1919, Ohio is one of the oldest of the state ecumenical councils. Its seventeen denominations encompass some 4,000 congregations and 1 million members. The Council co-sponsors various events and activities with other organizations.
The Board is comprised of each bishop and executive leader of the 23 judicatories (governing bodies.) The Board meets twice a year.
The Foundation, Board of Trustees is entrusted with fiduciary responsibilities of endowment and investment. It is comprised of representatives from the various 23 judicatories of the Council.
We are an Ohio expression of the worldwide ecumenical movement. Ecumenism is the quest for unity and the collaborative effort of the churches to be one in their witness and service to the world. Our mandate is to respond to Jesus' prayer: "that they may all be one...so that the world may believe." (John 17:21)
