The Reformed Communion is a fellowship of pastors committed to a Rule of Prayer for their mutual benefit, the benefit of their congregations and the broader mission of Christ in the world.
Our fellowship began in 2004 when several pastors began an online forum for mutual encouragement, theological discussion, laughter and sharing resources. What emerged was something we simply couldn’t find anywhere else–a community of pastors not driven by celebrity or grand promises, but friendship and mutual help and growing commitment to missional church planting and Reformed catholicity. Over time our fellowship grew to include members across denominations, with extensive ministry experience serving in diverse contexts and in 2010 the Reformed Communion was officially launched.
“Of the many things that we need in order to be faithful in ministry, three stand out: wise people to teach us, colleagues to partner with us, and friends to encourage us on the way. The Reformed Communion has been the most important source for each of these in my life and I’m extremely grateful to our Savior for it.”

Book reviews, articles, conversation, cultural issues, and debate are the obvious benefits the Reformed Communion provides. The real value though is in the shared life of ministry and the flourishing relationships the Communion facilitates. These happen among old and new friends from a diversity of denominations in an environment where opinions are respected, the gospel is celebrated, truth is wrestled with, and love is nurtured.
