MISSION PARTNER LIAISONS NEEDED “The Church Has Left the Building” is more than a t-shirt slogan to ECLC…it’s a core value of who we believe God calls us to be. Will you help ECLC’s justice partnerships grow as a Mission Partner Liaison this year?
Liaisons serve as the Champion for one of ECLC’s partnerships, attending two trainings, and helping ECLCers participate occasionally through learning, serving, advocating, praying, and giving. Intrigued by this small but essential leadership opportunity? Email Lauren to chat more!
