The Southeast Conference is a geographic region of the Evangelical Covenant Church, a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada, with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ.

The Southeast Conference (SEC) partners with individuals and organizations who envision a world where God’s shalom reigns. By creating collaborative partnerships to strengthen the development and discipleship of Covenant church leaders and faith communities, the SEC introduces people to Christ, disciples them to live as Christ followers, and equips them to pursue God’s priorities in our world.

As a conference, we celebrate and embrace the calling of women and men, who are single and married, young and old, rich and poor, to lead our congregations and ministries. When you visit SEC churches in Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, you will discover they are located in small towns and big cities, in rural, urban and suburban neighborhoods, and in wealthy and neglected communities. We believe in the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
