ECO exists to serve congregations and nurture leaders, building flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Read about the ECO Vision.
As an expression of The Fellowship of Presbyterians, ECO seeks to serve the ministry and mission of Christ’s Church. Our name represents a three-fold commitment to connect leaders through accountable biblical relationships founded in God’s grace (Covenant), commit to a shared way of life together (Order), and ultimately, make disciples of Jesus Christ (Evangelical). The name ECO also speaks to our commitment to strengthen the “ecosystems” of local churches, providing the resources needed to grow, thrive, and reproduce.
Just as earthly ecosystems draw richness from the right kind of diversity, ECO is committed to unleashing the ministry gifts of women, men, young leaders, and every ethnicity. ECO’s name also draws from the Greek term oikos, meaning “household,” used in the Bible to reference the network of relationships that nurture an individual.
