Greetings from the North Pacific Conference Women Ministries (NPC WM) Board! We are pleased to explain how we are all part of a much bigger picture.
NPC WM is part of Women Ministries of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), led by Meagan Gillan, Executive Minister, and headquartered in Chicago, IL. In partnership with the ECC WM office, we are part of local, national and international ministries.
In our growing North Pacific Conference (NPC) which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, there are 78 Covenant Churches. Currently, about 44% of all NPC Churches have a form of Women Ministries, and nationally the figure is about 77% in ECC churches.
Local Women Ministry groups are the bedrock of WM when they partner with WM at the conference and denominational levels. Like ECC WM, the North Pacific Conference is a self-supporting ministry. We are grateful that God has connected us with you our ministry partners. About 19% of the WM groups from churches in our conference send in ministry support and the women at Retreat give generously to support the mission.
The NPC WM Board is an elected volunteer leadership team that seeks to implement God’s vision for WM our conference. These ministries include the annual women’s retreat; North Park Scholarships; Faith & Outreach Grants to seed new Covenant ministries that advance the Kingdom; project support for Special Interest Missionaries; and the crucial on-going Justice and Compassion Ministries which include initiatives joining the support against human trafficking and abuse of women (AVA).
Please accept the gratitude of the NPC WM Board. You demonstrate how invaluable it is to have the financial support, time and talent of women working together to accomplish the shared purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God. Please consider partnering with WM by donating to ministry support. You may donate by using the Ministry Support Form — thank you!
