Denominational Ecumenical Officers

Denominational Ecumenical Officers (DEOs) are appointed by their own Churches to offer advice and resources for local ecumenism within a particular region/county body or Church (i.e. Diocese, District, Synod, Baptist Association). DEOs work as a team together with the County Ecumenical Officer. They also relate to their own National Ecumenical Officer (NEO).
