Ecclesia Ministers Conference is a special Ecclesia Association designed to provide leadership, mentoring, fellowship, accountability, and endorsement for men and women in public ministry in accordance with the Christ-life, foundational values, clear God-given vision, Godly relationships, and wholehearted involvement in the Body of Christ under His Lordship in the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Some Facts About EMC
As the EMC General Assembly convenes each fall, the conference displays its value of each member by identification, relationship, fellowship, accountability, credentials, ministry, mentorship and encouragement.
Our vision is to build and advance the Kingdom of God by uniting the Body of Christ to disciple all nations. Hence, Ecclesia involves itself not only in its own ministries, but also in facilitating Pastors Gatherings and other events, and extending Christ’s life, values, vision, relationships, and wholehearted involvement (lvvri stable) through the rest of the body of Christ to the world.
EMC is international and trans-denominational. We are a fellowship of ministers mutually and voluntarily accountable to the conference under God.
1) EMC holds or desires no authority over churches or ministries.
2) We are held together by relationship based on our life in Christ, our foundational values, our God-given vision, our Godly relationships, and our whole-hearted involvement under the Lordship of Christ in the advancement of God’s Kingdom.
3) We are open to learn all that God wants to teach us through one another. As trans-denominational, we neither opposed nor promote denominations in the Body of Christ. We believe all benefits of life in Christ and the Kingdom of God are for all parts of the Body of Christ who will accept them.
