"As a new pastor in the Covenant Church, I have found the Northwest Conference to be a true partner in ministry. I appreciate that whether I'm bringing a request or asking a question, the staff is always supportive and genuinely cares. That makes you my first contact. Thanks Northwest Conference."
We are a regional conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), which is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God's grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God's love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength the comes from unity within diversity.
