*Due to the dispersed nature of our Communion, all new members are welcomed as Provisional Members. This special designation allows the candidate to be active in the common life of the Communion while discerning full membership. Canonically, the rights and privileges of a Provisional Member are limited to those granted by the Presiding Bishop, whereas a full member is granted the full rights and privileges of the order to which they belong.
The Convergent Christian Communion considers itself in communion with all those who strive to witness to the life, ministry and teaching of Christ. We recognize for some, a formalized agreement is necessary due to faith tradition or custom, therefore, we are happy to formalize such agreements. The communion partners listed here are those Worship Communities, Para-church Ministries, Networks, Denominations and Communions that have established a formal Full Communion Agreement with the Convergent Christian Communion.
The C.C.C views the Worship Community as nexus of Christian Worship. We classify Worship Communities in 3 categories – Faith Communities, Mission Congregations (Missions) and Parish Churches. Worship Communities offer regularly scheduled services that are open to the public.
