General Secretariat

Called to communion and committed to justice, the WCRC fosters church unity and coordinates common initiatives for mission, theological reflection and formation, church renewal, justice and dialogue.

The coordination for these efforts comes through the general secretariat, with its offices in Hannover, Germany.

The general secretary is the chief executive officer of the WCRC and is thus responsible to the general council and to the executive committee to direct and coordinate the work of the World Communion of Reformed Churches.

Along with the officers, executive committee and staff, the general secretary works with member churches and ecumenical partners to fulfil the goals of the WCRC mission and vision statement.

The WCRC’s current general secretary is Chris Ferguson, a minister from the United Church in Canada. He was appointed in 2014 for a seven year term.

The general secretariat also oversees the organization’s finances and communications, including the coordination of member church prayer requests.
