The International Churches of Christ continue to seek God’s will for their cooperation as a movement of churches with the passion to love God, each other and the lost world around us. A crucial element for God’s mission is for leaders to work together in unity from 150 countries around the world. Through much prayer and discussion, we cooperate and collaborate through servant leaders from the various areas of the world. Their roles and responsibilities are published here. These will continually be examined and modified to accomplish God’s purpose.
