Welcome to Covenant Cares
CovenantCares is your place to engage and connect with God’s work in the world through the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). We are more than a network of churches—we are mission friends joining God in bringing the transforming love of Jesus into our broken world through the power of partnership. When you purchase a CovenantCares gift, you partner with our brothers and sisters throughout the Covenant.
We are stronger together.
We have five main categories reflecting the five mission priorities of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
Select a category below to learn how you can connect with each one:
We Are Dedicated to serving Covenant ministers through advocacy, endorsement, care, and formation. Our partnerships with conferences and churches enable us to provide educational opportunities, quality care, and responsiveness to our clergy. Last year we issued 108 first-time ministerial licenses, bringing the total number of credentialed clergy to 2,514.
Make and Deepen Disciples
Our vision is to mobilize a multiethnic movement of disciples who make disciples of all ages. Make and Deepen Disciples helps Covenanters of all ages and backgrounds navigate the complete journey of faith. In the last year, we have seen 407 churches read through the New Testament together and 2,840 people make first-time commitments to Christ at camp.
Love Mercy Do Justice
We are committed to joining God to make things right in our broken world. Love Mercy Do Justice seeks to resource and equip the local church in its call to love, serve, and work together with people at the margins toward holistic individual, family, and community transformation.
Start and Strengthen Churches
Our vision is to see every Covenant congregation become a healthy, missional church that plants healthy, missional churches. By healthy we mean pursuing Christ and by missional we mean pursuing Christ’s priorities in the world. We are committed to expanding our growth trajectory by both supporting established churches and planting new churches. The Spirit who starts churches is the same Spirit who strengthens churches. We are in awe of how the Holy Spirit is moving among us.
We are committed to a global gospel—participating in God’s whole mission across cultures and around the world. God’s mission is nothing less than the transformation of the world and everyone in it. God has called us to join in, and our missionaries, churches, and international partners have answered the call in faithful partnership.
