Serve Globally

We join the global Church through global partnerships and sending global personnel to engage in God’s mission across cultures and around the world

The Evangelical Covenant Church is committed to the whole mission of God—extending the whole gospel to the whole world. Through sending of personnel, training people through theological education, equipping local congregations, and cultivating global partnerships we serve globally in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East North Africa. 

How We Engage in God’s Mission

We support Global Personnel in more than 63 countries to serve alongside local partners to form and equip communities of Christ-followers through culturally relevant evangelism and transformational ministries that seek to address the spiritual, social, emotional, mental, physical, and justice needs of the community demonstrating the whole Gospel.
