Eastern District Association (EFCA)


The vision of the Eastern District Church Planting Initiative is to actively cooperate with God in His church planting movement through the prayerful, strategic and diligent birthing of many new reproducing churches.

The Scope
The Eastern District targets six states (Eastern New York, New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia) to fulfill the Great Commission mandate to make disciples among all peoples. In a District with four of the major urban centers in our country (New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.) as well as significant suburban and rural areas, the Eastern District has over 39 million people to reach. 

The Process
Church planting is not for the faint hearted. It often is hard, faith stretching work. But God is calling some to step up and be sent into one of the toughest and yet most rewarding mission fields there is: The Eastern District!
