Criminal Justice and the Church
One of the priorities of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) is to empower the church to engage the issue of criminal justice. Alongside the Christian Action Commission and other partners throughout the denomination, we are working together to educate, equip, connect, and empower congregations to be the hands and feet of Christ in the midst of the complexities of the criminal justice system. We hope that through this partnership you will encounter stories, resources, and entry points to join these efforts.
In 2010, the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Covenant Church passed the Resolution on Criminal Justice.
