Christian Education

Brief Background

As a result of the rapid growth of ECWA, there was the need for a ministry to take care of the spiritual growth of converts and the educational needs of the church. This led to the appointment of Mr. Jim Plueddemann on August 20th, 1966, and the birth of Christian Education Department in 1967. The vision that Jim Pluedemann had for ECWA was to turn every Local Assembly into a Bible School.

Today, Christian education exists at the DCC level coordinated by the Christian Education Organizer (CEO), at the LCC, Christian Education Secretary (CES) and at the LC, Christian Education Elder.
