Ordered Ministry

Who We Are

The Department of the Ordered Ministry is committed to strengthening the Evangelical Covenant Church’s community of vocational ministers through advocacy, endorsement, care, and formation. The Department’s 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.
