The Ecumenical Leaders Group (ELG) is made up of the senior leaders (Bishops and Executives) of various Christian faith communities in Maryland - Episcopal, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, United Church of Christ, Christian Science, and others.
CMEC staffs and promotes the gathering of the denominational leaders in Central Maryland for the purpose of promoting dialogue among the leadership. Additionally, this vehicle is utilized for the denominational leaders to support positions that are consistent with the teachings of Jesus.
In the last several years, the ELG worked to support legislation to promoting the rights of immigrants (the Maryland Dream Act), ending the death penalty in Maryland and reducing gun violence through the Firearms Safety Act 2013. And in 2014, they worked to end the child refugee crisis. They also are working to foster environmental justice within Christian communities.
The Ecumenical Leaders Group meets alternate months (January, March, May, July, September, November) at the Episcopal Diocesan Center, 4 E. University Parkway, Baltimore, MD.
