Grand Rapids, Michigan (NFIC)

In June 2010, one thousand people from 107 countries will gather on the campus of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan to launch the World Communion of Reformed Churches, a new global organization formed from the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) based in Geneva, Switzerland and the Reformed Ecumenical Council (REC), based in Grand Rapids.

More than 80 million followers of Jesus worldwide who belong to the Reformed church tradition will be brought together in a Uniting General Council, with the theme of “Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace,” to implement and conduct the business of the joint organization.
