You’re here for a reason.

Whether you want to learn about the Evangelical Covenant Church for the first time or you’re a longtime Covenanter, you’ll find what you need.

We’re here for a reason too.

We’re here to engage more people in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, across more populations, in a more caring and just world to make more disciples. We do this through a growing, multiethnic, intergenerational mosaic of churches with ministry partnerships in nearly 40 countries.

What is our Mission?

We join God in God’s mission to see more disciples among more populations in a more caring and just world.

As the Evangelical Covenant Church, we pursue our mission through five strategic priorities. We aim to: Start & Strengthen Churches, Make & Deepen Disciples, Develop Leaders, Love Mercy Do Justice, and 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.

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.
