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.

How We Engage in God’s Mission 

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. 

Global Personnel

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.

Prior to moving to the USA, I was a professor at the National University of Colombia and served with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in Colombia for 16 years. Starting in 2001, I served as InterVarsity National Staff in the USA. I have a master’s degree in Christian Ministries, and I serve in Spiritual Direction to those who want to be fully present and available to God and receive His grace over them. My joy is to see professors and college students coming to know Jesus and being transformed into people that bring the good news of righteousness and justice to others.
