Prayer Requests

These are important days of partnership among the more than 800 congregations in this movement known as the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) . Together, ECC is  making a real difference in real people in real places with the good news of Jesus Christ as they pursue five strategic priorities. God has critically important things for ECC to accomplish in a world of great need. It will happen as the congregations live into this mission together. The mission priorities are:

Start and Strengthen Churches
ECC is committed to start and strengthen healthy, missional churches, much like the Apostle Paul started and continued to strengthen churches in the New Testament. ECC believes the local church is God’s basic strategy to carry out mission in the world.

Make and Deepen Disciples
ECC is committed to reach people with new life in Christ, and then to help them grow deeper in Christ. It is a lifelong journey of faith.

Develop Leaders
ECC is committed to our clergy, through investing in their ongoing personal and professional growth. They also see very real opportunities to expand the training of the laity. In multiple venues we seek to develop all leaders or the church – both clergy and lay.

Love Mercy, Do Justice
ECC is committed to pursuing compassion and justice through the world. From the inception the Covenant has been concerned with helping hurting people (love mercy), and addressing the causes of that hurt (do justice). From a biblically rooted perspective, they  provide tangible ways of extending the love of Jesus in deed as well as work, and speak as an advocate.

Serve Globally
They are committed to a global gospel – extending the whole gospel to the whole world.
Through global partnerships and their own missionary team, they make and deepen disciples, start and strengthen churches, develop leaders, and love mercy and do justice.

Please pray for continued mission impact.
