WELCOME TO ECM
If you’re looking for a campus ministry at K-State where you can come together with other young adults to deepen your spirituality, think about important issues, develop healthy relationships and make a difference in the world by serving others, you’ve come to the right place! ECM is a place and a people where engaging in these things—spirituality, study, sociality and service—are part of everything we do.
ECM stands for Ecumenical Campus Ministry. “Ek-you-men-i-kuhl” is an ancient Greek word that describes efforts to bring together diverse elements in a way that celebrates their unity. More specifically, it usually refers to the efforts of Christians to seek and to celebrate the things that unite people of faith, rather than dwell on the things that divide us. “Ecumenical” is a still great word, even if it is hard to pronounce. It aptly describes what ECM—and two thousand years of Christian practice at its best—is all about. To find out more about what that looks like at K-State, read on.
The mission of the Ecumenical Campus Ministry at Kansas State University is to invite both religious and non-religious young adults in the university community to engage the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. ECM is a cooperative ministry sponsored by the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ, and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
