The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
Covenant Cedars exists to provide a Christian camping environment in which those who are not yet believers will be introduced to Jesus Christ and those who are believers will be encouraged to grow in their relationship with Him.
Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
In many parts of the developing world, education means empowerment, and it is a privilege, not a right. Lycée Vanette, a secondary school in the D.R. Congo, began with funds from the Women Ministries Educate the Girls project. The school equips 120+ Congolese girls to be future leaders of their communities, churches, and schools.
