Identity Leadership One Body
The ECC Ministerium is focused on three themes in this season - Identity (always first in Christ, and then also in our particular family of the Covenant), Leadership (elevating our skills and our health as we serve others), and One Body (we are better together and value unity in diversity.) Read the Spring 2019 Ministerium Report for more on these themes and how you can help shape our leaders and our discipleship to these ends. Below are some resources that we are frequently asked for about Covenant Identity in particular; more links to be added later.
WHAT IS THE COVENANT?
"It's more caught than taught."
"It's evangelical but not fundamentalist."
"We have a bounded set of values, not a list of checked boxes."
"Conventicles met in small groups to share life and faith together - to covenant."
"Started by Swedish immigrant pietists, seeking God's Glory & Neighbor's Good."
"A multi-ethnic mosaic often ahead of the curve on issues of faith and justice."
"Made stronger by leaders from many ethnic traditions and international members for several generations."
"Small but mighty, the ECC fights above it's weight class."
"Biblical, missional, relational, devotional."
"Where is it Written?"
"How Goes Your Walk?"
