Ministry Description
The mission of The Evangelical Free Church of America is to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people. United by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God, The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of approximately 1,500 churches and church plants in the United States with 600 missionaries impacting 93 countries of the world.

APEX is an authentic and immersive missions experience, for youth and college age, to develop leaders who seek to live with Jesus, and for Jesus, in all aspects of life.
Held every other year, the EFCA's Challenge youth conference challenges students to live on mission with Jesus everyday, everywhere and with everyone. Please check our website for further information.
Crises offer unique opportunities for compassionate outreach, evangelism and disciplemaking. Our Crisis Response teams help EFCA churches and ReachGlobal partners prepare for and respond to disasters in their communities and around the world, responding to crises such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and large scale fires.
EFCA GATEWAY is a unique, language-specific theological course of study for pastors and leaders, including ethnic, urban and other non-traditional students. GATEWAY is designed for leaders who need theological and pastoral training, but lack the time and resources to access traditional seminary education.
EFCA reaches into a variety of communities around the world as each chaplain fulfills the role of the clergy taking the Good News of Jesus Christ beyond the local church. Our chaplains perform church services and provide ministry within unique settings ministering to people in the military, health care centers, veterans medical centers, colleges, universities, senior centers, corporations, hospices, community services (police and fire departments), and other locations.
ReachNational combines the strengths of our urban and intercultural ministry leaders and national ministry leaders to form one team with one mission. Partnering with EFCA churches, districts and leaders in the U.S., we will work hand-in-hand to glorify God by multiplying healthy churches among all people.
EFCA Crisis Response is reaching out to churches in the storm path. In addition, the team is coordinating with member churches of the EFCA’s Crisis Response Mobilize Network for their support of this hurricane response. They are also looking for financial partners to aid in current and future preparation and response to crises. Invest financially to help the families affected by this hurricane and ongoing Crisis Response outreach.
