The Evangelical Covenant Church is committed to strengthening its community of vocational ministers through advocacy, endorsement, care, and formation. Our vision is for a faithful community of vocational ministers who lead through living out

  • active inclusion of all persons called to serve God, regardless of gender, age or ethnicity;
  • a deep understanding of scripture, theology, discernment and Covenant identity;
  • a healthy self-awareness and personal care through Sabbath-based rhythms; and
  • a commitment to life-long learning and collegial accountability.

Through these commitments, Covenant pastors, missionaries, and chaplains continue their journeys to more fully embody the pastoral arts of preaching, teaching, leading, and caring well.
