Mission Partners are ECO’s solution to having a flat organizational structure rather than creating a centralized denominational mission office.
ECO is fortunate to have strong relationships with experienced and well respected mission agencies. They are prepared to help ECO congregations discover global partners, make missionary connections, help send your own members out into the world through full time mission work or short term trips, and respond to the needs of the world in disaster response and long-term development. Though ECO Churches are free to partner with organizations beyond these, we maintain collaborative work with these ones that share our core values and Presbyterian and Reformed commitments.
The Outreach Foundation
The mission of The Outreach Foundation is to engage Presbyterians and global partners in proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. They seek to be a resource to congregations to help them catch a vision for the amazing things that God is doing around the world and to partner in it. Their priorities are to: build the capacity of global church partners; send and support missionaries; care for vulnerable children; expand support for mission; and transform lives through mission involvement.

Frontier Fellowship works with congregations to help establish indigenous churches among unreached people groups and to find new places to be involved in frontier mission. FF exists as a resource in helping churches create or enhance their vision for taking the gospel to all people groups in the world. They are driven by a two-fold vision — that God desires to be worshipped by all peoples through culturally unique expressions of faith and the global church is called to unity and participation in sharing the Good News of Jesus with the world’s 6,500 distinct ethnic groups who still have little or no access to that message.

The Antioch Partners
The Antioch Partners (TAP) is a missionary sending agency that partners with local Presbyterian churches in the U.S. to send out followers of Jesus to participate in God’s mission in the world. Those serving through TAP have been called by God to long-term, cross-cultural ministry and are engaged in many aspects of Kingdom work, including: evangelism, social justice, discipleship, supporting church-planting movements, leadership development, and business as mission. Learn more at theantiochpartners.org.
The mission of World Renew is to join communities around the world to renew hope, reconcile lives, and restore creation. Compelled by God’s deep passion for justice and mercy, their ministry is three-fold: community development, disaster response and rehabilitation, and peace and justice. World Renew helps ECO to respond to domestic and international disasters with long-term recovery work, as well as working in communities of poverty in 28 countries around the world to foster community development and address injustice. World Renew offers your congregation a way to provide financial support and volunteers to respond to emergency and disaster situations or engage in sustainable Christian community development around the world.
