Assyrian Church of the East Joins NCC

The National Council of Churches (NCC) welcomed its newest member communion, the Assyrian Church of the East, which was represented by His Grace Mar Awa Royel, Bishop of California and the President of CIRED (Commission on Inter-Church Relations and Educational Development).

“Our partnership with the Assyrian Church of the East has been welcomed with much excitement across our fellowship,” said Dr. Tony Kireopoulos, Associate General Secretary. “This venerable church, with its membership across the United States and its roots in Biblical lands, brings new energy to the NCC as we work together for justice and peace.”

“The suffering of Assyrian Christians is deeply felt by the millions of Christians associated with the National Council of Churches.”
