Global Christian Forum
The Global Christian Forum aims to bring together churches and Christian traditions who have not been engaged together in ecumenical dialogue, especially those rooted in the evangelical and Pentecostal movements. Since 1998 its Continuation Committee has organized a series of regional meetings, culminating in the November 2007 global forum in Nairobi, Kenya. Participants included (but were not limited to) representatives of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, the World Evangelical Alliance, Baptist World Alliance, and Pentecostal World Fellowship; a second global meeting will be held in Indonesia in October 2011. As a relative newcomer, the Global Christian Forum embodies a spirit of enthusiasm and hope, though participants acknowledge that more substantive dialogue will likely exacerbate latent tensions.
