This site is no longer active but preserves content published between 2015 and 2019 in conjunction with Covenant Quarterly issues 73:2-76:2.

Welcome to the FORUM. In conjunction with the Covenant Quarterly, this site offers a space for dialogue around relevant pastoral and theological issues. We seek to facilitate the resourcing, encouragement, and growth of Christ’s church by

  • Publishing quality content from the diverse voices of the Evangelical Covenant Church and beyond;
  • Hosting rigorous, generous dialogue;
  • Offering resources for further engagement.

For additional orientation read “What Is Forum?,” “Who Is Forum?,” “Collaborate with Forum.”


Through its publications, the Covenant Quarterly fosters theological reflection on ministerial praxis in service to pastors of the Evangelical Covenant Church and the broader Church.


  • Balance: We seek to bring the full spectrum of Covenant voices into dialogue;
  • Rigor: We speak after considered thought and through argumentation; our purpose is constructive dialogue, not the assertion of opinions;
  • Generosity: We give each other’s words the best interpretation; our purpose is charitable dialogue, not divisiveness;
  • Freedom: We celebrate Covenant freedom in non-essentials, within our commitment to Scripture’s authority and to one another.
