Description: The United States Conference of the World Council of Churches was formed in 1938 when the WCC itself was still in the ?Process of Formation.? Henry Smith Leiper, an American with many national and international connections, was given the title of ?Associate General Secretary? of the WCC and asked to carry out WCC work in the U.S. After the World Council of Churches was officially born in 1948 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Leiper raised millions of dollars for WCC programs.
Today the U.S. Conference of the WCC is composed of representatives of U.S. member churches of the worldwide body. The U.S. Office of the WCC works to develop relationships among the churches, advance the work of WCC and interpret the council in the United States.
