Christian Action Commission
The Christian Action Commission is an appointed standing commission of the Evangelical Covenant Church, whose purpose is to contemplate pertinent social issues and then encourage corporate and individual involvement throughout the denomination. Commission members help educate, develop awareness, and prompt action regarding certain ethical, political, and social issues primarily through preparing statements.
Normally these statements take the form of resolutions, which are reviewed by the Covenant Executive Board and voted on at the Annual Meeting. Resolutions that are accepted join the long tradition of social issues that the church has decided are vital to speak about in light of our faith formation and discipleship. Accepted resolutions are not binding, but serve to bring important social concerns to the attention of the whole church body, stimulate discussion, and help explain the will of a particular gathering of Annual Meeting delegates.
Churches are invited to send resolution drafts to the commission if they would like a particular ethical topic to be reviewed for submission to the Annual Meeting. Please send any resolutions before December 15 to the Executive Vice President, 8303 W Higgins Road, Chicago, Illinois 60631, Attn: CAC Chairperson.
