Middle East Council of Churches

Since 1974 the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) has grown to include Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Rite Catholic, and Protestant churches. In the Muslim-majority region, the council works to establish a peaceful Christian presence by initiating dialogue, which it has done in post-war Lebanon and Iraq, as well as in Israel/Palestine. Other MECC programs support services that meet the material needs of people in the region, including partnerships with the Lebanese government, civil society groups, and international aid organizations doing humanitarian work in Lebanon after the 2006 war with Israel. MECC also serves as a connection point between Lebanese Christian leaders and the international ecumenical movement via organizations like the World Council of Churches. Recently MECC has also challenged both its members and the international community to develop a more thoughtful and just response to migration in the region.
