Faith and Order is part of a global movement that began in 1910 under the guidance of Charles Brent, an American Episcopal bishop, and has continued to meet regularly on the global level with the participation of the Holy See. In the United States, the Faith and Order Commission was inaugurated at a 1957 conference and was placed under the auspices of the NCC-USA. As a multilateral ecumenical forum, its task is to speak together about the Gospel and individual church communities in ways that will lead to healing the divisions among Christian while honoring Christian diversity. Professor Matthew Shadle, PhD, of Marymount University represents the BCEIA in this forum.
