Expanded Church Response


Partnerships are vital to the work of ECR. Through both local and international partnerships, the scope of ECR’s work, its impact, and sustainability is exponentially increased. The primary focus of ECR’s work is building the capacity of the local Church to impact their communities. Through this model, local churches are mobilized and equipped to serve the vulnerable within their communities.  Therefore, ECR is able to provide sustainable community development programs that bring physical and spiritual restoration to thousands of individuals through the capacity of the local Church.

Along with these local partnerships, our partnerships with international donors, non-government organizations, and faith-based networks also help us to achieve our vision by increasing our base of resources and giving us the opportunity to stand in the gap for the oppressed at many different levels in society. Each of these partnerships is strategic in fulfilling not only ECR’s mission, but also the commands of our Founder, Jesus Christ – to love God and to love others.
