Mission
Priorities

As we join in God’s mission to see more disciples among more populations in a more caring and just world, we strive to stay on mission by centering our lives and work around our covenant commitments.

As the Evangelical Covenant Church, we aim to:
Start & Strengthen Churches Make & Deepen Disciples Develop Leaders Love Mercy Do Justice Serve Globally

Our mission priorities are what guide everything we do. We believe so strongly in these five priorities that we have organized our ministry life around them. From church planting and social justice to global missions, leadership development, discipleship and racial reconciliation, we seek to build a holistic body of Christ.

Develop Leaders

We are dedicated to serving Covenant ministers through advocacy, endorsement, care, and formation. Our partnerships with conferences and churches enable us to provide educational opportunities, quality care, and responsiveness to our clergy. Last year we issued 108 first-time ministerial licenses, bringing the total number of credentialed clergy to 2,514.

Make & Deepen Disciples

Our vision is to mobilize a multiethnic movement of disciples who make disciples of all ages. Make & Deepen Disciples helps Covenanters of all ages and backgrounds navigate the complete journey of faith. In the last year, we have seen 407 churches read through the New Testament together and 2,840 people make first-time commitments to Christ at camp.

Love Mercy Do Justice

We are committed to joining God to make things right in our broken world. Love Mercy Do Justice seeks to resource and equip the local church in its call to love, serve, and work together with people at the margins toward holistic individual, family, and community transformation.
