The Ohio Council of Churches

The Ohio Council of Churches (OCC) is a partnership of 17 Christian faith denominations throughout the state.

Established in 1919, Ohio is one of the oldest of the state ecumenical councils. Its seventeen denominations encompass some 6,000 congregations and more than 3,000,000 members. The Council co-sponsors various events and activities with other organizations.

The Board is comprised of each bishop and executive leader of the 27 judicatories. Funding for the Ohio Council of Churches is primarily from each judicatory.

The Foundation, Board of Trustees is entrusted with fiduciary responsibilities of endowment and investment. It is comprised of representatives from the various 27 judicatories of the Council.

The Governing Board meets three times a year. The two Commissions are Faith & Order and Justice & Advocacy. A yearly Ohio Ministries Convocation (OMC) invites people from around the state and beyond to gather for two days to hear keynoters and attend workshops.

We are an Ohio expression of the worldwide ecumenical movement. Ecumenism is the quest for unity in diversity 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 that the world may believe." (John 17:21)
