Chapter Summary

The parameter or indicator commonly used to monitor the process of the ecumenical movement in Indonesia is the National Council of Churches, the Dewan Gereja-gereja di Indonesia (DGI, founded in 1950 and since 1984 the Persekutuan Gereja-gereja di Indonesia, PGI). One year after the proclamation of Indonesian Independence, and after the release of the European missionaries from internment, a missionary conference took place in Batavia/Jakarta on 10-20 August 1946. When the DGI was founded in 1950 there were 27 church organisations or denominations that agreed to join, and then registered to become the first members. The e end of the New Order regime and era and the rise of the Reformation era that was indicated by a series of very bloody riots in several cities in May 1998 did not automatically bring Indonesia to a better condition, even just the reverse.
