EFCA West believes that God desires for new churches to be formed among all people in all places. We also believe this is best done by pastors who have been assessed for the maturity and ministry skills that are needed for this mission. Tim Jacobs currently oversees this ministry with the help of seasoned church planters throughout EFCA West.
The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around these theological convictions.
People often ask what it means to be an Evangelical Free Church. In 2007 the National Ministry Team developed this white paper in an attempt to capture the ethos of EFCA.
Ministry is best when gift-based. The EFCA West team was selected because of the diversity of their gifts and experience. The team is here to serve and strengthen churches.
