NAEIS Ministering to the
The Oikoumene is the Inhabited Earth
God's Creation populated by all God's children.
God's revelation has been received by many people in
different places and cultures, leading to a variety
of expressions of Faith and a variety of understandings
of one's relationship to God.
The members of the National Association
of Ecumenical and Interreligious Staff serve in increasingly
diverse communities throughout the United States in
a variety of ministries councils of churches,
faith-based community services ministries supported
by multiple congregations, denominations and faith groups,
and other ecumenical and interfaith configurations.
This Association provides the opportunity
for those engaged professionally in this important work
to be connected with colleagues, sharpen professional
skills, and be renewed in Spirit by sharing and collaborating
in service to God's people of the Oikoumene.
