Our full name (ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians) speaks to our core commitments:
To build flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
HOW ECO BEGAN
Seven pastors from the Presbyterian Church (USA) joined together in 2010 who were concerned with the declining membership in their denomination and the growing denominational disputes over theology. In January 2011, these pastors sent out a letter to PC(USA) pastors around the country, asking if others wanted to join in crafting a new way forward. in January 2012, at a conference in Orlando with more than 2,200 in attendance, a new denomination was formed: ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
ECO's FOUR PRIORITIES
Lift up the centrality of the gospel.
