The Synod Executive Council of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians is delighted to announce that we have been received by the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) and will officially be welcomed in following a meeting with a delegation in the next few months. We joyfully received this communication from The Reverend Dr. Setri Nyomi, General Secretary of the WCRC indicating that:
"...we welcome the member congregations of ECO as being part of the Reformed family of churches and, consistent with the constitutional basis of WCRC, we desire their active participation with us as together we serve the cause of Christ in the world. In that spirit, and with heartfelt desire, we look forward to welcoming you into WCRC.  We seek with you 'The Fellowship of the Spirit in the bonds of peace.'" (Ephesians 4:3)



Born in June 2010 through the merger of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) and the Reformed Ecumenical Council (REC), the WCRC is a landmark effort to unite Christians for common witness and service to the world.  WCRC has its roots in the 16th century Reformation led by John Calvin, John Knox, Ulrich Zwingli and the earlier reforming movements of Jan Hus and Peter Valdes. Today most member churches are in the Global South and many are called to witness as religious minorities in their countries. WCRC has its secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland.


"We are thrilled to receive this word," said The Reverend Dr. Dana Allin, ECO Synod Executive, "and are eager to explore with others in the WCRC how we can deepen our relationship with our brothers and sisters in Christ as together we serve in his name." 

The mission of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians is to build flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ. The name ECO 5 reinforces our passion for strengthening the ecosystems of local churches to help them grow and multiply. Our full name represents our commitments to connect leaders through grace-based relationships (Covenant), unite around standards of life and ministry (Order), for the ultimate purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ (Evangelical).  


Building flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
