Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Job Opening: General Secretary of the National Council of Churches

The National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (commonly called the “National Council of Churches” or NCC) has begun a nationwide search for a new General Secretary to replace retiring Gen. Sec., Rev. Robert “Bob” Edgar, a United Methodist minister and former U.S. Representative from eastern Pennsylania (1975-1987) who has been elected president of Common Cause, the citizens’ advocacy group.  Although NCC Presidents serve 2 year terms, the General Secretary is the head of the day-to-day workings of this ecumenical organization representing 35 different Christian communions or denominations, both Protestant and Eastern Orthodox.

  1. Since the new and current heads of Churches Uniting in Christ (CUiC) and Christian Churches Together (CCT) are Disciples, I would suggest that the head of the NCC should be a Disciple as well — though I will not campaign for election and if elected will not serve — just in case anyone wanted to know!
