ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians - Rankings by Area (Metro-Areas) [Counties] [States]

ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, dates back to 2010, when seven pastors from the Presbyterian Church (USA) became concerned with declining membership and disputes over theology within their denomination. In 2011, these pastors sent letters to PC(USA) pastors all across the country to invite them in forging a new way way forward. This prompted the formation of two groups. One group, the Fellowship of Presbyterians (later becoming the Fellowship Community), remained within PCUSA, while the other group, ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, formed their own denomination in 2012.
