North American Academy of Ecumenists:


This site is intended as a resource to introduce you to the Academy and to direct you to the Academy’s officers and conference information.

The goal of the North American Academy of Ecumenists is to inform, relate, and encourage men and women whose profession or ministry in the church involves them in ecumenical activities and studies. Its unique contribution is to provide ecumenists with an open structure for exploring issues too important to be left exclusively to official ecumenical agencies and projects.

Founded in 1957, the Academy meets annually in September. Its conferences are professional and scholarly in substance and informal in style.

The membership of the Academy includes ecumenically active clergy and laity as well as professors and students. It is an ‘Academy’ by virtue of its members’ shared concern for the theological reflection and scholarship that must accompany the movement toward mutual religious understanding and the unity of the Christian churches.

The Academy is affiliated with the Journal of Ecumenical Studies (JES).

North American Academy of Ecumenists membership includes a subscription to the Journal of Ecumenical Studies.
