Founded in January 2012, ECO is a Presbyterian denomination that exists to serve the local church. We seek to nurture leaders and connect congregations so as to reclaim a sense of covenanted biblical community within a denominational context.
ECO is committed to four priorities through 2018:
1. Lift up the centrality of the gospel.
2. Grow with an emerging generation of leaders.
3. Prioritize a wave of church innovation.
4. Create an atmosphere of relational accountability.
The name ECO is not an acronym. It reinforces our passion for strengthening the ecosystems of local churches. We believe the church is a living organism that needs life-giving resources to help it grow, thrive, and multiply. ECO is committed to cultivating a healthy, diverse, resource-rich ecosystem where pastors and congregations can flourish.
The full name (ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians) speaks to our core commitments:
Covenant: Connecting leaders in accountable relationships and encouraging collaboration. Ministering out of God’s unrelenting grace and covenant with His people.
Order: Uniting around a shared theological core; Committing to a shared way of life. Nurturing gospel-centered leaders.
Evangelical: Advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ; Planting new missional communities. Serving our communities and God’s world in Jesus’ name.
Presbyterian: Standing within our Reformed and confessional heritage. Affirming the life of the mind. Embracing the value of representative government.
