Who We Are
To multiply transformational churches among all people
The vision of the EDA is to help our leaders live healthy lives, lead growing churches and bring churches together so that together we can multiply transformational churches and bless the 43 million people of our district with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We exist to help our churches savor and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed, making disciples of all people.
Our number one commitment to the health of our churches is the health of pastors and leaders.
Our churches may be geographically far apart and be very different from one another in some ways, but we are connected in the EFCA as one big, covenant family to our head, Jesus Christ.
What we do is for the glory of God (Colossians 3:23-24), so we will strive to do it well.
We celebrate individual growth, church growth and community transformation.
"Churches without Walls"
We live in a mission field that has approximately 43 million inhabitants and many communities in dramatic need of Gospel witness. To that end we want to help our churches make disciples who make disciples, love all their neighbors and transform their communities.
