As we enter into the season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is also time to ask God how we can be generous with those around us. One way to express generosity is through giving to the various ministries that the ECA community supports. This year, the Giving Place will give all ECA community members an easy way to bless various ministries around Colombia and share God’s love with many different communities. As the body of Christ, we are called to support one another, and we can’t wait to see how the ECA community is going to be an answer to prayer for HIS many faithful servants around the country.

The Giving Place is a special ECA Christmas store allowing ECA students and families – the entire ECA community – to give to the various ECA ministry partners. We contacted each ministry and asked them how we can support them during this Christmas season with a mini project or gifts for the children in their ministry.

This year we are supporting the following ministries:
